The Lawyer’s Answer

I have this habit of getting back in touch.  Does that make me an idiot? 
I get bored on Saturday nights and reach out to men who have gone silent.  I was so curious to know what happened to The Lawyer.  I last heard from him in October.  He asked me if our next meet could be in a hotel.  And I said yes!  And then… nothing.  
I wrote to him at Thanksgiving.  Silence. 
I wrote to him at New Year’s.  Silence.   I began to wonder if he’d had a heart attack.  I just wanted to know!  I hate silence!  
Maybe it was the Dayquil, but I started to wonder if the third time could be the charm?  And wrote him again.

Hey sweetheart– my apologies– life has been crashing in a bit, and I am sorry for not staying in touch– how are you? hope your new year is going well, and that you’ve been able to indulge yourself and have lots of fun!! I deeply regret not having followed through, but lots of stuff came up and I ducked!
hope you are doing well and you don’t think too horribly of me!  best, Tom

Tom!!!  Thank you for taking the time to reply… I appreciate it!  I’m so relieved to know you are alive and well and busy, dear man.  
I learned a lot in the last four months.  You were the only “normal” man I met, so you stick out in my memory.  You know how perfect someone seems before you get to know them.  🙂  
After Panties Man, Mr. Scat, Mr. Dom, two guilt kings, two email kings and a partridge in a pear tree, I am done with AM.  It was “interesting” but didn’t produce the fun I had hoped.  I am still there, helping my online pals fine tune their profiles, but I seem destined to sit on the back bench while others play.  It was good to have tried, and met you.  You were very kind.  When life gets too bizarre, I think of the twinkle in your eye and my hand in your pocket.  It always makes me smile.  
I am home sick with a cold, so anything goofy I said above should be written off to Dayquil.  
I hope life stops crashing in and 2013 is a great year! 
Nice to know he’s not dead.  But geesh.  
I wrote back a sweet note with an undertone of “you jerk… you were the only normal guy I met and now I’ve given up.”   Hope that guilts him a bit but I doubt it.  He was such a gentleman and then pfft.  But I do appreciate him responding!  
I’ll be very surprised if he writes back.  I’ve got my closure so I can forget now.  Right?  File him in the “too busy to cheat” pile and move on.  Stop wondering what it would be like to be alone with him?  Right?
