Heh.  Leave it to a frat dude to manscape where it might not be needed (although obviously the chest could be necessary for some) but neglect ground zero.

“Ground zero” as a metaphor for the pubic region has so many different psychological subtexts, in and out of this discussion.  E.g., it is the pinpoint site/location of the most damaging thoughts and actions for a lot of people. 
 

Also could be used to describe grooming and appearance - could mean “rubble and mutants” or “smooth as a sand nuked into glass”.

Reminds me of a silly childhood joke.

I will share it.

Lil Emma's dad has the habit of dozing off in the hammock in their backyard nakedly. So one day Emma asks him, what that thing between his legs. "Ah, that my little bird." A few days later he falls asleep in the backyard again, yet again naked. But this time he wakes up in ER, and aks what happend. Emma replied. "While you slept I played with your bird, than he spat at me. So  cut his head off, stomped on his eggs and set his nest on fire."

Ok. There was once this girl I fell for madly and deeply, when we were both in college, some 25 years ago. Probably my first real infatuation. We never really got together back then, never had proper sex, though we came this fucking close on so many occasions, as this was wierd, complicated relationship, that lasted few years. I always wanted more than she was willing to give and that's that. But our ways parted after we graduated, we both got married and forgot about each other for a long time.

Few years ago, after I separated with my wife, I incidentally learned she got divorced. Long story short, we started messaging each other from time to time. Then more frequently. But we still haven't met, for more than 20 years now, as her love life is - let's put it this way - pretty messed up.

Few days ago it turned out we are both going to Paris to watch Roland Garros 2022 and we both have tickets for the night session on the same day. It went without saying we're going to finally meet in person and we're going to do it in freaking Paris. The only problem is, she's going to be there with one of her former boyfriends/lovers, who would love to become a current one. So the question is, how should I treat this, as a casual meeting of two former almost-lovers, or something entirely different? To be honest I'm not even sure if I really want to step into these waters again. But I do feel strangely excited, something I haven't felt for a while.

You probably feel strangely excited because the memory takes you back to your 20s when everything was new and exciting.  That's potent stuff.  Go, but just be sure to separate the woman from the girl.

Yeah, most definitely. Don't worry, I'm not that boy anymore either. I wouldn't be surprised if we're both disappointed. But I'm looking forward to it anyway.

Oh, god, y’all, Frat Bro can‘t get it up even with Cialis. We are watching Netflix.

I did explain manscaping to him, though, so next time we try…

Time to buy your own collection of love darts.

This is just ridiculous :( I paid for a hotel room, my own drinks and dinner, and….limp dick AGAIN!! And he (Frat Bro) had even taken a Cialis :bang: (sorry, I know I’m repeating myself, but you can imagine how frustrating this is and how I’m just like omg)

In other and entirely separate news, while I was sitting by myself having a beverage and waiting for Frat Bro, at my favorite wine bar, a SECOND bartender told me that he had heard what happened with Firm and said, “Em, he (Firm) is an alcoholic. When he’s not drunk, he’s great, but the minute it flips, he’s obnoxious and all about ‘bitches’ this and ‘bitches’ that.” When two bartenders agree that someone is an alcoholic, as well as one’s friends who have lived with alcoholism in some way, as well as my hairdresser, my kid, and my manicurist….

No dick is worth that.

 

ETA: update - a met a nice, 50-ish man from Canada last night in a bar where I was having a snack and a martini after Frat Bro had to leave to go to the airport and pick up his kid. We have a date tonight.

Got back onto OKCupid 2 weeks ago, had a good chat with a cute girl and a date set for a meet up next week but then got an “I’m not what you are looking for” text, with zero response to my follow-ups (sent night of, and 3 days later), so can safely assume my first ghosting in a long time.  I didn’t miss this feeling of low-key inconsequentiality and random rejection…

But it actually struck up a conversation with Ms. M (kinky play friend, saw one another on the app) about what she’s looking for and our compatibility, and I have a date with her Monday.  We have a history together, and had a long chat about what a relationship could look like, and we’re going be careful and safely step into emotional connections.  Hopefully more to come in this space.

On all intersections of diagnosis and experience, I’d put the opinion of a  bartender about alcoholism near the top - they’re basically running active experiments with the same (or similar) people and behaviors every night, and then dealing with the consequences, on a per person basis.

Reminder for your vacation.

Maple Syrup is no lubricant. On the thought, is there something like Maple Syrup extra virgine.  :D:leaving:

Everything about him screams alcoholic.  It’s actually very sad.  And btw people who say “in vino Veritas” and that the drunk is the real person - I don’t believe that.  The sober person is the real person - and you were attracted to that very lovely real person.  However, alcohol takes over alcoholics and turns them into a manifestation of their worst self.  And you can’t fix that - he has to fix that and WANT to fix that.  And you have no reason to put up with the monster who is taken over by alcohol.  

Separately and in happier news, I feel like a nice Canadian is full circle for you somehow….

Why is almost everybody around me all of a sudden fixated on dating again? Heck one of my damn classes (with all adult students mind you) had a while ago all together signed up on tinder and keep wanting to tell me their complaints and their escapades for reasons that completely baffle me.

"I'm the teacher, why are you telling me this?!?"
"Because I'm excited!"/"Because I hope you could tell me how the algorithm works."
*eye roll*

I'm definitely too old for this shit.
