Clearing the Mr. Man Air & Morgan Siler

April 19, 2009

On this day four months ago I said good-bye to Mr. Man. I didn’t look back. And I never told you all why. Some of you have told me I am obligated to write about this in detail. Others have speculated on what he may or may not have done. One of you left a […]

Sweet Nothings

December 29, 2008

Mr. Man is still sending them to me, in letters and in voicemails. He misses me and wants to do whatever he can to get back into our lives. I do miss him but I just can’t. Besides he’s far, far away now – off on that rocket ship – so we have some time […]

The End.

December 11, 2008

He made a promise. And he broke it. I had asked him to make me a promise at the beginning, one well within reason if you knew his entire story. I am not one to ask much of men when we’re together. I believe in personal freedoms and independence. But this was a promise that, […]

Recovering bad boy addict here.

December 3, 2008

“You may feel like something is missing,” says my therapist in regards to my budding relationship with Mr. Man, who is – by far – the most caring, considerate and empathetic man I’ve ever been with, “This is probably because, in the past, you’ve only been with emotionally unavailable men.” I hadn’t told her of […]

The point of no return.

November 25, 2008

“I’m sorry I was so short with you on Sunday,” I told Mr. Man. My fears got the best of me last weekend and I felt like a schmuck. “It’s okay. You’re probably stressed. I still can’t believe how much you do – you never stop… ever. I mean, it’s just too much for one […]

Damn you, fear.

November 24, 2008

It’s happening… My relationship phobia is kicking in. Always hits at the same time – after about one month. I start freaking out imagining this terminal diagnosis of actually being with someone indefinitely. Mr. Man has been incredibly patient -no, he has been more than patient – he has been considerate and totally understanding of […]

I threw on my gold, slinky dress, slipped on my knee high leather boots and then topped it off with a long black wig which I’d braided earlier. Part of a group Peter Pan costume, I was Tiger Lily. “C’mon! Get yours on,” I shouted to Mr. Man as I started in on my make […]

When men fall…

November 12, 2008

they fall hard. My aunt told me this years ago. The words didn’t make sense to me at the time. Every man I’d ever dated had been slow to fall or reluctant to fall. I just couldn’t imagine one actually falling as hard as she described, until now… “I’m crazy about you. I just can’t […]

Food for thought.

November 12, 2008

Both of my men (Mr. Man & Benjamin) are on my mind. For entirely different reasons, but they both have bugs. Mr. Man has the love bug, which I think I’ve caught as well. Definitely contagious in some cases. Benjamin has an ear bug, which I am entirely responsible for fixing. In regards to that […]

A new frontier.

November 9, 2008

It’s officially – official. Mr. Man and I are an item. But because even uttering the word relationship makes my arm hairs stand on end, not out of joy but out of fear – I’ve decided to do some research. After all, it’s been years since I’ve been in a “real relationship” so I need […]
