Love is a Storm

posted by Paul "The Contrarian" Blake @ 5:21 PM  

Over the weekend I finally managed to really relax. I got to sit back, put up my feet and simply enjoy the simple things in life. As it turns out, I also met some friends, one of whom managed to ply me with so much alcohol that I actually agree to join this blog ( *cough*yoda*cough ). But I digress.

On Saturday evening, I met an interesting friendly young bombshell. I was actually surprised that we left the pub at eight in the evening. It's usually a couple of hours past midnight when women are drunk enough to
properly seduce;)

I was prepared for an interesting night and I wasn't disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I was impressed with the girl. It's a rare woman who can keep up with me until sun rise.

When I woke up on Sunday, at about eleven in the morning, I was to get an even greater surprise. One of my ex girlfriends had left voice mail on my phone. She said that she wanted to give us another try. Even though she sounded slightly bitter, she was profoundly apologetic.

As I listened to the voicemail, I couldn't help thinking about how crazy men and women are. My ex and I used to fight all the time. Our fights often came to blows ( with me being the hapless punching bag! ). That was one passionate relationship and that passion extended into the bedroom in ways that still make shivers run down my spine. It took three months before the bite scars and scratch marks finally healed. My back and shoulders still look like I've been in sleeping in a bed covered in sheets of barbed wire.

Why is it then, that in a relationship that was filled with cursing and fighting, I'm tempted to call the girl back? Make no mistake, I'm not a relationship man. In fact the reason we broke up was that she found me in bed with another woman ( and even that happened enough times for her to realize that I would never change. )

More importantly, why is it that after I've tortured her so much she still wants to be with me? Why would she want to give us another try when all we'll do is fight and all I'll do is still fuck lots of other girls? It's as though the more I hurt her the more she wants to be with me.

The story gets even more weird. Every girl I've slept with knows that I'm pathologically incapable of being faithful. Still, that doesn't stop them from calling me, going out with me and sleeping with me over and over. Every weekend is the same!

I guess, deep down, we all know that love is a storm. Nothing ever stays the same and the other person is as likely to fall out of the boat into the rolling waves as they are to struggle to steer the boat to safety. What I do know is that I'm loving the storm.

Ms K, do you mean you know me in the "biblical" sense;) Well, in all likelyhood you probably know me. If not, then we should meet some time ( um.. of course, I'm assuming you're above eighteen! )

Well.. women like bad boys and kenyangal thinks I'm an asshole.

Kenyangal, I can't deny that there's some truth to what you say. I, however, never ever claimed to be a good guy. I simply am who I am. I hope that you won't hold it against me:)

Paul, women loooooove to change men, that why most of them opt for the bad boys, so that we can 'change'them into what we want. there's this thing most women tell themselves that their coochie is the bomb and it will tame a bad boy...Nah! not gonna happen. and there's also teh slef-image thing to consider too.

As for you hitting the skins, boy i hope you are wrapping it up! can't trust nobody these days! And yes, you's a ho :)

It was a lie... That "Good men finish last"... Good men don't finish. muhahaha!

Lol.. kelitu, of course I keep my weapon strapped, sealed and concealed within a shield...

As for "saving" or "changing" men, dudes probably try to do the same thing for women, albeit using different methods.

I don't think of myself as the stereotypical bad boy. I don't even think of myself as a 'bad boy' but hey.. if the shoe fits..

( Ho is such as strong word. I just have a lot of love to give:) I think of myself as doing what I can to make the world a better place. There's a difference. )

Although I obviously cant relate( in the hetero sex kind of way, it is amazing how your actions are exactly like a friend of mine's ( although he does guys).

To each his own,I prefer a monogamous one -on- one over and over.

Keep posting

Many at times, when we've fallen deeply we overlook the bad sides of a person.If in a relationship it gets to the point of see no evil, hear no evil, then the person will always be used and exploited.Being a man, i know gentleman has no place in the way i relate with women.Good has no place in this game.Treat a woman good, buy her nice things and she'll eventually leave you.The bad boys, the players carry the day.Be total jerk and man, no woman who gets entangled inyour game will ever leave u, even if they find you in bed with their sista or best friend.Boy Keep the
game,play it like a pro n always watch yr back.There will come a day to pay back.Take care.
