My social/romantic life has been a bit hectic post-Andreas. I have effectively moved on from my crush on CB and have wandered into other ponds, so to speak. I was so embarrassed about everything that had happened between all of us that I just fell off the radar on CB’s side.
I met a boy named “Jay” last weekend at Canter’s Delicatessen. Without going into too much detail, we said hi, winked, bonded over a bowl of matzo ball soup (he’s a conservative Jew who grew up in synagogue life), and ended up back at my place to roll around naked for a few hours – no sex, surprisingly. He came over again the next night for round two – and, again, no sex which is totally okay with me. We were both honest from the start: we’re both recently divorced and recently broken up and we just want to have fun. You know, “friends with benefits” although he has been making contact with me every day since we met (big FWB “no no”).
