Waiting Game

I recently sent a girlfriend home in the pouring rain.

She had been irritating me.

We had spent the day together going to the gym, having lunch, walking along the beach, laughing at the stupid tourists, fucking, and watching 'Game of Thrones.'

But her incessant offers to do things for me --e.g., mend my clothes, do my grocery shopping, cook dinner, do my laundry, etc.--irritated me to no end.

In the dark I escorted her to the door. As the rain poured down, I told her to keep her hair dry. She pulled the hood of her jacket over her head and walked into the street to her motor car.

There is something about a woman behaving this way that disgusts me. I don't want--or enjoy--women doing things for me.

I know she was only trying to make herself useful to me. But at this stage in my life I don't need a woman to do any of these things. I do them myself--and quite nicely, I might add.

I await the conciliatory text.

Hmmm - not quite the act of a gentleman, old boy.

Hey can you send her to me, if you don't want her?

Some heavy duty larping, there, bud.

BM ~ "Larping"?

You know I'd do bugger all for you?
I just don't have a servile bone in my body.
Though I am nurturing in my own way.

Larping - what is it? intriguing.

Tabs ~ I think that's the term the aspies and mouth-breathers use to indicate someone is making it up. If only... lol

That poor lady could have used some lessons in Southern Belle charm. Gentlemen wait on us, they stand when we stand, escort us, get our coats, hold the door for us and so on. I would say to ladies---while dating, don't lift a finger at his house, don't cook either. No need for him to come to expect anything. Besides, can a positive relationship be solely based on cleaning and cooking?? A thought to ponder.

LARP --- live action role playing--complete with costumes and usually done by those into science fiction ----I didn't understand the larping comment. I guess she was trying to play the role of the good wife---big mistake, huge. And she sent you a reconcilatory text, I assume? Good grief! Charlie Brown is less needy.
