Apparently, I’ve coughed up way too much because most men have asked me not to blog about them. One guy said that I was too public for him. But I wanted — and I still want — someone who respects me for writing, a man who doesn’t care if his friends read my blog — or his mom. A man who doesn’t get embarrassed by me.
I come from generations of very private women, women who’ve held onto their secrets as hard as they could. Being a mystery might appeal to most men: c’mon, tease me. I’m kind of shy in person, I don’t like wearing masks. I want to be honest and upfront. Single parent bloggers out there, do you feel the same way?
The Biologist took my rant about him very well. I should not have blamed him. I’m sorry. I also should have called him before blogging about him. He apologized, I apologized. On the phone, we had one big apology party.
He said that he didn’t mind that I wrote about him on my blog — although he would have appreciated greatly if I’d called him first. I get that. I really do. Ms. Single Mama commented yesterday.
“He might be a bit upset about this entry.. yikes…. if you really were into a guy even poison oak wouldn’t keep you away from him. Right? And – it’s no one’s fault. It just happened. I feel bad for him though…he was probably so excited to take you into the woods.”
Ms. Single Mama added that it took her “boyfriend a while to get used to my writing about him… If anything – gives them a one up because they can really understand where we’re coming from. It’s like a bible on how to date me. Wish he had one I could read.”
Single parent bloggers, do you write about your girlfriend/boyfriend, like Ms. Single Mama ?
Do you write about someone you’re dating, like One Woman Show?
Do you write about your ex, like Dad’s House Blog?
Please tell me how you stay YOU — and respect others along the way.
