Simple Man


I wasn’t sure where to start my blog. Should I start from the beginning of when I became sexually active or whatever comes mind? So I’ve decided go with whatever is on my mind. So this blog will be all over the place. I can do , right? It’s my blog after all. However this is gonna be from the beginning, back when I was is HS and dating a guy to this is still one of my best friends. He was my first true love and a first for a lot of things. But one time is all it takes! I’ll never forget phone . See, I co- opt my senior year in HS. He’s older than so he had a job. I always called him when I got home. He was working his grandparents store and cell phones were not a thing. So I called the store and he answered. He said we need to talk. OK! He then told me he couldn’t see me anymore. Wait..... what? Why? He then told me he was gonna be a father. 5 1/5 years down the drain. How could this happen? I know how, but I didn’t understand why! Was I not good enough? Why, why would you do this? It was what it was. Our friends were baffled as well. We had a pretty tight nit . So I still saw him from time time. I was pretty close with his family as he was with mine. He married and lasted a whole months or so. He wanted work it after he divorced, but I just couldn’t let it go. And I kept my distance and tried move on. I graduated HS and stared a job. ’ summer we lost two of our best friends in car accidents 6 months apart. Though they were more of his friends he grew up with, he knew how much I cared about them. He called me both times just to make sure I was ok. I knew he still cared about me. He still does. He always will. One summer night he called me and wanted to see me. So I drove to his parents house and he told me to get in the truck. Where are we going? Just get in. Ok! We made our way up to the place where we always partied. Just the two of us since the break up. We sat on the tailgate of his truck and just talked, about everything. Then Lynyard Skynyad’s Simple Man came on. We both knew the song well. But the words resonated with me. As the tears rolled down my , I looked him and said “Just be a simple kind of man. Be something you’ll love and understand!” He wiped the tears from my cheeks, kissed my forehead and ’s when we both knew we would ALWAYS be friends. Some things aren’t meant to be how we think they should be. Over the last 25 years or so we’ve been there for each other. He’s person knows me better than anyone and still loves me. I will always love him too!

It must be good to have such a good friend and old friend. I'm sorry things worked out the way they did at the beginning, but it seems like you are on a solid footing now.

Do you still live in the same area or town as your friend?

NO! His parents still live in the same spot. He’s married now as well. If we do meet up, it’s always at his parents. We don’t meet up often. But when I go visit his family, most of the time he comes over.

When you see him, do you find it difficult to be around him because of your old feelings, or are you past that now?

Way past that! The love will ALWAYS be there but the romantic feelings were gone not long after we broke up.
