I'm sticking with yesterday's guess.
I've been on Facebook as Just Another Fat Girl for awhile. It's really weird because I get tons and tons of friend requests. TONS and TONS. I'm not kidding. I had to delete over 150 friend request emails alone from my inbox. And that doesn't include all the "fan page suggestions". I look at these accounts and I wonder how the hell they found me. My page only has like 31 fans. My person account has 339. Can I just say that I don't have that many fb friends on my super secret identity fb account? Blows my mind. I was thinking that most of them are like fad sales people. Trying to pitch and whatnot, but then I look at the names and the posts and most of them are real life people. Most of them are using Facebook for their blogging medium. It's pretty cool. Although, it does make it a pain in the ass to log into my jafg email account. I'm changing my setting for friend request emails from fb. Actually, I'm gonna do that right now...
Whew. I'm glad I remembered I could do that. Not kidding, in the time it took me to login and and make those changes (and just accepting like 75 friend requests before I started this post) I got another friend request. My friend count is now at 340. YIKES!
Well, folks, I have a Long Distance Lover. I should warn you now, I'm going to be talking about some adult stuff for the next little bit. Nothing X-rated, but definitely over PG13. I travel on business several times a year. I see a lot of the same faces, but my real life work is in a large industry so the opportunity to meet new people is always there. I met him on a late Summer trip.
He approached me at a networking event. That's business speak for party with free adult beverages and food. Anyway. I was talking to another male person for a majority of the evening (strictly platonic, I assure you) which actually garnered some attention because he's fairly high profile in my work world. Anyway, this is how I initially met LDL.
To begin with, it was a brief meeting. Actually, we didn't even really talk. He was taking pictures of everyone around and--being the nice girl that I am--I offered to take his picture with Mr. Platonic. Before an introduction to be made, he was off. I was a little dissapointed because I really thought he was quite cute.
About an hour later, I'm getting another beverage at the bar and then suddenly, LDL is beside me handing me his card. He tells me "I don't know what it is about you...I haven't been able to stop thinking about you since I saw you. Please call me. It doesn't have to be tonight, but please call me before you leave." And then, he was off. Again. This is by far the best pick up line I've ever heard. Ever. By far. Needless to say, I did call him. We talked more and eventually got to know each other much better before the end of the trip.
I want to tell you that we didn't have s-e-x. (And if we would have, "protection" would have been involved. I am a safety girl through and through. There's my PSA for the day.)
That's not to say that the opportunity wasn't there, it just didn't come to that. "It" didn't need to. "It" was pretty phenomenal on it's own. I don't really know what "it" was, but damn, there were sparks and fireworks. Both he and "it" made an impression.
I was content in leaving "it" at that. To be honest, I really was expecting to leave "it" at that. I mean, we're talking different time zones here. And then I started getting texts. And fb messages. And phone calls. Not all at once, but enough to know that there was continued interest there. Let me tell you, this part has been a lot of fun. A lot.
Anyway, there are plans in the works for seeing each other. Over the holidays it was out of the question because of schedules. Hell, right now it's hard because of schedules. Plus we're talking serious travel commitment because it'll involve a plane. And that's a pretty big commitment. I'm not 100% sold on the idea of travelling just to see him or the other way around, but wouldn't mind seeing if there was still electricity the next time we happen to both be occupying the same space.
So I know I'll be see him again in a month. I'm ok with waiting considering my commitment issues. What I have been doing in the interim is shopping. Dear Lord, have I been shopping. First of all, if you didn't know about Lane Bryant's buy two bras get two free sale, get to that website NOW. It's almost over (01/17/11). Haivng said that, I've greatly increased the size of my boudoir. Nothing makes a girl feel sexy like pretty panties. And bras. And nighties. LB even has some babydolls that have underwire built in. Underwire! God Bless the person who finally did that! I have all sorts of colors now, too. And lace. Which can itch at times. Just sayin.
My point with all this is that Sexy is as Sexy does. I didn't pursue this guy, although I certainly did notice him the moment I saw him. Even after "it" happened, he still pursued me (and is continuing to do so). Somethin I got makes him hot. And I'm ok with that.
My arsenal is stocked. I'll keep you posted. It may just fizzle instead of sizzle. In which case, I got new stuff out of it, anyway.
Like my favorite new pair of pretty panties:
The Coral Rumba Boyshort
For the record, I didn't model this.
