147. Life falters, then goes on

So…without boring you with too much detail, I was admitted to hospital quite suddenly in mid-January with a random infection which made me very, very sick. I spent a week hooked up to intravenous antibiotics, having endless tests, feeling tired and alone.  I wasn’t really feeling up to visitors, and I did have a couple,…Read more 147.

146. The Toolman rises from the dead

So I saw this profile on Tinder.  The name was right, the age was a couple of years younger than the truth and there were no face pictures, just a picture of a guy in a panda suit.  It was not the kind of profile I would ever match with, but the bio sure sounded familiar:…Read more 146.

142. The Captain returns…continued

I expected to hear from The Captain all day on Monday, and my girlfriends checked in all day long to find out if he had called. He did not. On Tuesday I had enough waiting and took control, sending him a message. “Hi there.  Do you have some time to chat today?" “Sorry busy atm…I’ll…Read more 142. The Captain returns…continued

123. The Swinger’s Site

The morning after The Mystery Man, I sat and wrote my blog about it. I have been thinking that the casual sex with 30 year olds is probably not the path I want to take again. I want the passion and excitement of The Toolman with somebody who loves me. But I need a man…Read more 123. The Swinger’s Site

121 – The Mystery Man – part 2

I snap chatted to the Seeking Arrangement Guy for days.  While he kept the chat going he did so slowly, revealing little about himself, in increasing increments.  He kept inviting me over to his place, which I wasn’t feeling reckless enough to do.  However I was getting ready to take the plunge and meet him for…Read more 121 – The Mystery Man – part 2

99. The Toolman takes care of me

It was a rainy Monday when I parked my car at the train station before work.  I was trying a new way to travel to work and it meant I pulled up right next to the park where The Toolman and I had our outside adventure a few months before (84. The Toolman and the park).  I…Read more 99.

98. Lunch with The Toolman and The Swingers

We had been talking to a couple for a few months on the swingers website and finally decided to move forward with a meeting. They insisted on a drinks date before any kind of hook up in order to establish if the flirty chemistry of our chats would translate to real life. We arranged a…Read more 98.

89. The Toolman and Mrs & Mrs Playful (part 1)

Three months ago we found Mr & Mrs Playful through one of the apps.  They were friendly and genuine, which I am rapidly learning can be hard to come by. We chatted with them for a few days and Mrs Playful and I had a lengthy phone conversation where we hit it off beautifully. I think…Read more 89. The Toolman and Mrs & Mrs Playful (part 1)

85. The Blog Dilemma

Now that I am seeing The Toolman exclusively, I don’t have as much to write about, Beloved Reader. And as The Toolman is my most voracious reader, I am aware that what I write may upset him. I want to keep writing but struggle with this dilemma.  Can I write honestly about a relationship I…Read more 85. The Blog Dilemma
