On New Year's Day, I was partying in the neighborhood hangout when I was introduced to this man, whom I will call John. I hadn't had a boyfriend for about a year, by choice, as I had some things going on in my life that precluded me from being in a relationship. I have to say, I was instantly attracted to this man. Tall, handsome, distinguished, very well-dressed...the total package. We spent the entire day and well into the evening together, roaming the city, watching the parades, stopping in to other hangouts to see various friends...I was swept off my feet. We made plans to get together ASAP, depending on our schedules...I travel for work, and he owns several businesses, so it would be a challenge, but not impossible. Well, when I hadn't heard from him for about two weeks, I decided to give him a call. That was when he confessed that he was married. On the verge of divorce, but still married. My heart was broken. Sigh....
Last week, now this is 6 1/2 months later, mind you, he calls. His divorce is going to be final at the end of the month. Yippee! So last night, my friends and I meet him and his friends out in the city. What a night! We all went from restaurant to restaurant, and the guys were ordering no less than 8-10 dishes at each place, plus drinks and bottles of wine....I mean, the bill was like $500 each time. They would not let us pay for a damn thing. Then we all went out dancing till the wee hours.
Well, throughout the evening, John and I talked about a lot of stuff. I confessed that I had fallen for him instantly the day we met, and though I was sooooo disappointed that he was married at the time, I greatly admired the fact that he never cheated on his wife. He said he'd never stopped thinking of me, he felt the same way, too, and that he knew this was the beginning of the rest of our lives together. He said from this night forward, I would never work again, never pay another bill, he would take care of me and my daughter forever. Here he pulls out a fistfull of hundred-dollar bills and tries to give it to me. Ooooookay....I told him I needed to go slower, I wasn't looking for a "sponsor," I really wanted to be with him but I also wanted to take the time to really get to know each other before I let him take care of me, because I'm not all about what I can get from a man. I don't use people. I also told him that as much as I was attracted to him, that it didn't mean that I was going to jump in the sack with him, either. "Consenting adults" aside, I still need to form a solid relationship with someone before I sleep with them. He was totally okay with all of that, he respected me and my wishes. He wasn't going to lose me, he said. Wow, I'm thinking, my life is turning around...it's so hard to find a good man...I'd all but given up on getting married again....
End of the night...we're walking back to his suite at this swanky hotel and that's when I see a change in him...he's rude to the homeless people asking for money (this guy is worth MILLIONS), rude to the doorman, rude to random people in the hotel. Okay, we all had lots to drink, but this guy isn't a kid, we're in our 40s!...so we're in the living room, making out, getting hot & heavy, when I put the brakes on. He's like, okay, honey, I'm sorry...well, in the BLINK OF AN EYE, it's a 180...he's yelling, fuck this, this is bullshit, we're adults, why did you come up here if you're going to play these bullshit games...I was in shock. I went to put my shoes on...he's like, "Oh yeah, you're just going to leave now? WTF? You really wanna walk away from this?" I said, "Yep, because you just showed me your real self, and what it would be like down the line, and all of the money in the world is not worth being spoken to like this." I was so freakin scared, just hoping I could get out of there without him getting violent. I had to have hotel security walk me the four blocks to my car. Well, back to the drawing board....
