The Things I Never Said

Filed under: blogging, dating

For those of you who have followed this blog for a while, you’ll know that there are certain people in my “real world” life who never knew about it. A while back I uncovered myself to my family, to some of my friends, and I did’t come up against the best reaction in the world. And in retrospect, I completely understand that.

Well, tonight, the last person NOT to know about the blog joins the ranks. I would like to welcome The Twin into the fold. Earlier this evening, while the Red Sox were getting their asses handed to them, I finally told him about this space. That’s right, I finally opened up to him only AFTER we were done dating. Which in and of itself indicates a lot about my mindset while we were dating in the first place.

There is a lot more to say. Both here and to the Twin. But for the moment, I am going to go to bed. Content with the knowledge that there is nothing left to hide. There are many things that went left unsaid while I was in my last relationship. I can only hope that introducing him here will help him understand the mistakes we both made and help us to be better friends in the future.

Wow, who knew I could be so lucid at 2 in the morning while wasted?!

I always worry my family might stumble onto my site… You’re a brave one!!

Good Seeing You , last Night, in our HQ!

The Game was bad, but I hoped that we all had a good time, enjoying each other’s company.

Comment by Michael Leggett

You’re a braver soul than I am. Of my friends and family, there are only a handful who know about my site. And I think it’s good that the Twin knows now, and perhaps will get something out of it.

Totally unrelated, but the black on dark blue comments are hard to read…I tried in both Firefox and IE and they’re coming up that way. Is it me or is it a matter of working out the kinks on your cool new design?

As for coming clean, the tone of my blog has changed SOMEWHAT since my family found it. I imagine that was a tough conversation but you’re probably better off telling people than having them stumble upon themselves with no explanation.

I don’t know that brave is the word for it guys. I mean, I dated him for like 10 months and never said a word.

And Cope, it’s a matter of me having to tweak some things. I can’t, for the life of me, figure out how to fix it!

Yeah, but I don’t think anyone could blame you for not telling him. How can you write about someone honestly, knowing they’ll read it? You gave him a pseudonym so it’s not like you were violating his privacy.

Comment by Derek

True but we were in a serious relationship. I feel like it was understandable when we were just dating, but as the months wore on … I don’t know. What I do know is I am glad he knows where it is now. Now all I am worried about is what he’s going to think of it. Reactions from friends have been varied. Some still make fun of me for it. A lot. Others think it’s a great thing for me to be doing. I guess I’ll know soon enough where he falls on that scale.
