I spent Saturday with Cherie on Saturday. We hadn’t seen each other in a long time, but I was happy we were re-connecting. She came to Philly and we had some intimate conversation and sex.
I figured we were all good. This has happened before. The distance thing, and if it goes too long she gets a little reserved. I figured I had fixed that on Saturday. The sex, the time, the conversations… we’re good.
I’m a man. Women are far more complex than we are. That’s why we need them! To make us better people! We’re a bunch of Jeeps and they are elegant angels that we are blessed to have in our lives. We must treasure them and pay attention at all times, even though most of us suck at that.
I get a text a day later after our orgasmic brunch weekend from my beloved.
“I’m kind of mad at you.”
“Because I’m still upset about how I thought you didn’t love me anymore.”
This is what happens when you don’t see your lady for a long period of time, gents.
“When was this? I never stopped loving you.”
“Well we didn’t see each other for a long time. We stopped talking so much. I was really sad.”
“Me too. But I thought we cleared that up last Saturday.”
“I thought so too, but I thought about it and I’m still mad at you. You’re going to have to earn it back if you expect to get the (Cat Emoji. = Sex)
“I’m going to work to be better to you.”
“You have A LOT of making up to do.”
I didn’t respond. I had to think about it. I love Cherie so much. She is probably the greatest girl I’ve ever met. I can’t throw this away because of where I am in my life and pride.
We open the conversation again a day later. I didn’t know she was still pissed.
I send an emoji with a heart.
“Love on the brain.”
“I like that song! How is your day?”
I’m just hoping Cherie has cooled off.
“I wish I could sleep in, Lol. It’s ok. Lot’s of studying. You?”
“Just living the dream at the gym and salon.”
“You have big dreams and I admire them.”
Seems like maybe she’s not so mad at me anymore.
“You too! I just want to stay busy and be with you.”
“I want to be with you and only you. I miss you.”
This is good news. I think Cherie is back.
“I’m off next Saturday. Movie date?”
“I work. I don’t know what time I get done.”
“I am now off every other Saturday and I’d like to spend them with you, if possible. I know I have A LOT to make up for…”
I quoted her to show her I realize that I need to put in some serious time in our relationship so I don’t lose her. Cherie has great value. I can’t squander this wonderful, loyal woman.
“I want to spend time with you too.”
“Let’s try to do that, dear!” (Heart emoji) I don’t want you to be sad or mad at me.”
“I agree. I want us to be happy and in love.”
Cherie is the greatest woman I have ever met.
“I am happy and in love with you. Just need to see you more and do fun stuff with you and more fun stuff together.”
“Yes. I want to see you more too and do fun stuff and just be with you.
That’s how our texts end for tonight, but I think I’m working my way back into the heart of my girlfriend. I know everything will be fine. This relationship is a dynamic that works beautifully for me. Cherie gets a little lonely and moody but she’ll be fine. I’ll over do it on Valentine’s Day and since I’m taking more time off from my three businesses now I will make more time for her. We have the sweetest connection.
The Sunday after we were together I ran into a few of my female friends at the salon and at a bar I frequent. The conversation was always the same.
“How was your weekend?”
“Fantastic. I got to spend time with my girlfriend on Saturday. I love her so much.”
“Awww that’s so nice.”
“I absolutely love her. She is an absolutely wonderful woman. I’m blessed to have her in my life.”
“That’s so great Charles!”
I have truly hit the lottery with Cherie. I have been myself and I’ve done things. But like I said before, I compartmentalize my life. I have to at my age. Living in Rittenhouse. Daughter lives with me. Paid out $125,000 in child support. I have to be careful from now on. Cherie is amazing but I must keep my distance but love her unconditionally. She’s so easy to adore, but I’ve been through so much and now I’m wise, but jaded.
I will hold onto her as long as I can and I see a glorious finale to this movie that is my life, but there are so many things that are happening. I will never do anything to hurt Cherie, but this blog is called phicklephilly and it won’t write itself…
I am loyal and my heart belongs to my queen, but things are going to happen in my life and as long as they aren’t toxic, I’m going to let them happen. Out love affair is unconventional, but the best set up that’s ever happened for me so I’m just going to keep sliding down destiny’s rainbow.
