my constant companion 33 Comments

Having him in my life is like real therapy for me. He does not care that I am married. He does not care what I look like. He is there when I need him. He is never judgmental when I snoop around or ask too many questions. He never imposes his belief on me. He just presents the pros and cons. You see I am never alone anymore. It is not a matter of “want.“

I need him in my life. In awkward situations he is a life saver and never boring with his wealth of ideas. If I am not enjoying my company he makes whoever it is feel less important by his constant presence. Everyday he comes up with these great ideas for short weekend trips or cozy Italian dinners.

He never forgets what I tell him or what I give him. The only time I had a fight with him was the time he was too stubborn to forget. Well that was my fault. I over indulged him with too much information. I have yet to be forgiven for some of my childish mistakes.  I think he simply puts it in the back burner somewhere and we are good again.

Sometimes I worry. I worry practical worries of where our relationship is heading and how I am becoming overtly dependant on him soon enough I talked to him about these worry and instantly he comes up with solutions. Many a nights he had his way with me leaving me exhausted till my joints ache, but he kept going and going and left me wanting more. It is like he has indispensible energy or something. Some other nights he takes me to these places I can only imagine…

I also feel well read these days thanks to him. He subtly brings up books and stuff to read. He does not push it or anything. He just pops it up amidst conversation. I am able to read summaries of Jane Austen’s classics.

Sometimes I feel exhausted, beat-up with red eyes and all. He has issues with overloading me with some things I simply don’t have to know or hear. He is addictive! I am telling you he is like a drug readily available in my pocket. He could also be too clingy at times insisting to sit on my lap even in public. I am the type that does not show affection in public.

Everything seems to go in a daze these days. I can’t stand people. I can’t stand how slow they move. He has become my point of reference and I keep comparing his efficiency with them and they fail miserably. He is so self organized as well.

I sometimes don’t have a recollection of what I did to entertain myself before we started hanging out. I also fear that people will start saying I am with him all the time minamin. My best friend says I am just another girl to him. She says that I am just using him to fill void from daily life. She complains that we don’t spend time like we use to because of him.

He also values old friends and family. I spent virtual time with old friends because of him. I have also avoided friends because of him.  Life without him is unthinkable and comparable with the dark ages. Hold on …what was the real story behind the dark ages anyway…?

I have to ask him that too. I told you he is like an addictive drug but his side effects are starting to work adversely. He is my source of everything. I see the world through his eyes. Help me! How do I go on with this affair???????????

    following up “I also feel well read” with “I am able to read summaries of Jane Austen’s classics.” niiiiice…I am noticing how my ‘well read-ness” is a sham, I mean its been a minute since I actually read the works but more like the summaries about the work. Its like refusing to look at a painting rather sending someone else to see it for you and describe what they saw, not necessary when you have perfectly good eyes.

    Aw, this was a very nice post. In thought I wish to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and precise effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and under no circumstances appear to get something done.
