I have always believed in the saying that "Timing really is everything" and I have referenced it many times here at RG. This weekend confirmed that to me that the saying really is spot on.
As you know from my SCF post, Twin and I are on the outs. We are actually on the outs more than we aren't and that's why it's over. For real this time. I don't do drama, I will cut and run every time before I sit and suffer through a drama-filled waste of time. Be gone.
Saturday night had been booked for a while. A friend of a friend was going out for her birthday so we were joining in the festivities. I was looking forward to just going out, dancing a bit, and enjoying myself. Being newly single, I was also glad to be free of the obligation to explain myself or apologize for anything.
I had recently reconnected with a guy that I have known (and had a crush on) since I was 10 years old thanks to face book. We went to different schools but had been friends and hung out off and on throughout most of our Jr High and High School years but other than getting an update on him from mutual friends once in a while, I hadn't physically seen him in at least 15 years. That changed on Saturday night.
We made plans to try and run into each other at some point during the night and run into each other we did. He picked me out of the crowd instantly and we picked up easily where we left off 15 years ago, catching up on life and divorces and kids and the like. It was really good to see him. And he looked really good. He really hasn't changed at all.
We were both there with a bunch of friends so our groups merged and we spent the rest of the night on the packed dance floor having a lot of laughs and being silly, and working in a few moments of excellent sexual tension throughout the night.
Our groups headed out at the same time so he walked me to my car, said he was really glad we met up and suggested we do it again soon with slightly less company along for the ride, and then we kissed.
Yep, after 20 years of crushing on the guy, I got the first kiss.
Now you guys know that I'm usually not super attached to things of a sexual nature and that I can work it as recreation as well as relationship affirming and make a case for it either way, depending on how it suits my argument. But I'm going to let this kiss (well ok, we kind of ended up making out a little) stand alone as something I liked and was good being just exactly what it was....long overdue.
