My So-Called Love Life

This site -- my anthology -- is the story of a man, a young man, trying to find his way to love. Experiencing everything in between and serving you his heart on a silver-freaking-platter to the naked eye, for the whole world to see; relate, indulge, delve, and hopefully learn from his mistakes.

Mood Fling

When we were younger, it was always about the "next best thing," or in that case, the next hot guy. But as we grow older, it seems to exude not the next best thing, but rather "the last resort."

When I was younger, my standards were set so high, I could literally be diagnosed text-book narcissist. I'd go for the guys I knew everybody would want; the kind that would make me feel good about myself. But now as I'm older, I glance at those kinds of guys and just as easily look away, and instead, I find interest in the kind that make me feel good.

There may not seem to be much of a difference in the concept, but when it comes down to it, we pick our guys based on our moods. It's like a Mood Ring...
When we're feeling hot and red, we spark interest in someone you could find in an underwear catalog.
If we're feeling down and blue, we settle for someone not within our standards out of pity or some sense of self-loathing.
Sometimes we'll feel bright and orange and look for someone who stimulates us intellectually,
or often times we can feel greedy and green and go out with someone we know will pay for the food and even the drinks.

We have our ABC's to spell out our words, maybe there's some mood-factor to color-coordinate the men we pick. Our moods are ever-changing and I know it's safe to assume our interests in guys can be incorporated in a peculiar pattern. How it plays out that way is simple: we reflect.
Sure, we got our ABC's and the words to speak up on to express how we feel, but sometimes talk is cheap. Sometimes we need to act out in some way and often times, the result is to absorb those moods in the company of someone who can articulate what we feel with how they are.

We react with words to dress our expressions, and express our moods with a guy that can suit them, and suit ourselves with outfits that represent how we feel; and how we feel can be the sum of our ever-changing patterns. In fact, I believe we can assume every choice we make in our every-day-lives can be matched with a color, or mood, or pattern.
Anything from an executive decision, to what you eat, where you go out, what kind of cocktail you order, what music you're listening to, what time you go to sleep, and even moreso -- when you wake up.

We are examples of the sum of ever-changing patterns...
And defined by the actions we make to cater to them.
