Well, me actually. See, I haven't had sex in over three and a half years.
I'm going to stop right here and let that one sink in.
OK? Good, let's continue.
Last night I was watching an old episode of How I Met Your Mother and the characters were talking about how one of them had gone a whole 57 days (or something) without sex. Which is when I started laughing because, three and a half years.
But what I approach as a "meh," kind of thing these people were freaking out over. I mean, I see it as, if I wanted to I could go to a bar and hook up, but I frankly don't want to because the one night stand is lame (I've done them, they are lame). I don't want a relationship, so no sex there, and my male friends are either married, or otherwise unavailable.
After a while, I honestly stopped thinking about it in a "I have to get laid" way. I lead a damn busy life. Single Mom, work full time, run a household. Frankly I'm not sure how my cousins have enough time to have enough sex to keep getting preggers. They have more than one kid, and even as a stay at home mom that job is outstandingly hard. Add in the Fibro and I am in bed and asleep by 10 PM to be awake at 6.
Next thing you know, and three and a half years have passed and I haven't had sex in one of them. And now it seems like a bother to even try to go out and get laid. My friends talk about how I must be lonely and want companionship. I'm really not. I am surrounded by people I love and am really happy. Plus I have some me time (as much as you can have with a 5 year old). Sometimes people ask, don't you ever just want to get fucked? Well, sure. That's what porn is for. I don't actually need some strange guy slobbering all over me, thank you very much. Or gal, at that.
I happen to be one of those people who really don't need sex. If I have it, great! If I don't, whatever. I know not everyone is like me, hell, I'm going to assume very few people are like me. But it works for me, and as a result I'm not missing anything.
So, if any of you readers out there can relate, there you go. One more strange thing about this lady blogger.
