For the Teabag in All of Us

Not that kind of teabag. Don't be gross.

If I go about this properly, the blog will (eventually) explain enough about me, so let me just explain the blog, or at least the title of it, here:

Jet-Set Jmai!

Inquiring minds (ahem, Sass and Nat) want to know, so I guess it's time for me to give up the goods on Cute Bald Guy. I'll go with an acronym since, although he knows I blog, I have not been so generous as to give him my blog address, and I don't want to use his name just in case he's not comfortable with that. So I will call him CBG -- which makes me laugh cause those are my mom's initials and ...eww! But anyway...

I started talking to CBG several weeks ago... before leaving for Mexico even. We talked online for a while but he was in Jax and I am here, so I didn't really think much of it. We already know what happened last time I tried to work it out with a long-distance person, and anyway, I talk to a lot of people online; I'm just nice like that! Anyway then we started talking on the phone. I was still meeting other people but enjoying our conversations -- he's very easy to talk to; very friendly. And when we discovered we were both scheduled to be in Orlando on the same weekend for different conferences, we decided the logical thing to do would be to meet.

If you read the blog, you already know what happened then. I mean not really, but you know it went well. Long story short, on Friday I was supposed to meet him just for dinner and then return to Nat's. Since I was staying at her new digs, I didn't quite know where I was going, so after dinner I called her up, to ask for directions and let her know that we were going for an ice cream. Well, 3 hours later I called again, woke her up, and asked for directions again cause I'd forgotten what she'd already told me. SHE thought (dirty mind that she has!) that I'd gone back with him to his hotel room. As if!

We had 3 dates in as many days, and I discovered that he is a VERY good kisser ...which is so important, really! He drove down to interview for new jobs/visit me the following weekend... he is planning to move here. If he wasn't, I would have to cut him off. Or more accurately, I would never have bothered to meet him in the first place since I am certainly not planning to move anywhere except back to NYC (and even that is highly dubious!).

He asked me about a week ago, in the most respectful, chivalrous and shy way possible, if I would consent to being exclusive with him, and I recently agreed. When he called on Sunday and I put him on the phone with my Little, she asked me who he was, and for the first time in several months, I spoke the words "my" and "boyfriend" in that precise sequence.

I anticipate that my life will henceforth become rather boring for the bloggoworld. Coupledom tends to do that to people.

Ohhhhh but how I long for rewarding, meaningful, permanent, symbiotic coupledom! It's terribly cliche of me perhaps but that is truly the ONE thing I feel is missing from my life. I want a husband and a family of my own (i.e. where *I* am the parent!) and the whole kit 'n caboodle.

Anyway... the title of this post refers to the traveling that will ensue as I get to know CBG better. First it was Orlando, where I intended to visit with Nat but spent the better part of the weekend being with or texting/talking to CBG (sorry Butt!). This weekend, we're spending our first night together (yeah, no pressure there) at a hotel, meeting up on the Space Coast because that's about halfway. The week after, he's taking me away for a long weekend -- he is flying into Fort Lauderdale and then we're driving down to Key West, which I'm super excited about because after 6 years in Florida, I've never been!

All in, I'm having a really good time getting to know him, really enjoy his company, and MAN am I so excited to be into someone, finally!

In other news -- can someone please tell me how to make a blogroll?

i love that he asked you shyly to be exclusive... it sounds like he has respect and that's really important.

also go to and click on 'blogrolling' under the links...

i don't use it cause it takes too long for my blog to load with it... but that page is sure handy to have.

Woohoo there is boyfriend...and sex... that's all good in my book.

And no worries about the texting and time spending...God knows I have done the same and I understand that it is part of the excitement that comes from liking someone.

Soooo...when is he moving???

I'm back from weekend of kissing bliss! Good GOD this man can kiss.

Terry -- Snoopydance away! I'm sure Nat won't mind!

Sass -- I love that too. I think my favourite thing about him (other than his legendary kissing skills) is his respectfulness. I will go find out how to blogroll after answering comments and emails! Thank you!

Butt -- Hummmm, that's the rub, isn't it? We were talking about lil sister's wedding in June and he says definitely before then but he's got his eye on this one job that's not yet "opened up" so who knows? For now I'm just enjoying the feeling of being into someone who is equally into me... I'll let the pieces fall into place (or not) later.

Dzer -- Thank you! This lil girl can get all the support she can get in the love department!

Elle -- It really made me giggle that he asked that, especially since he's so much older. I just think he's so sweet! Also, he takes me out for mint chip ice cream and that's his favourite flavour too. Lol... so sickysweet, I know. No drowning sorrows! You don't have time for a relationship now, you're in law school!

Ok I'm feeling a bit too effusive. I might scare away all the bloggers.

Photographing baldy men is a piece of cake bab... I've had mucho experience of such with the bike-man now over several tours and you've seen many of the results (lol). You can't get the sun angle too wrong really with bald lads. Daz's eyes are red mostly mind.

Good weekend - Good photos on your next blog?

Nat's right - more blogging please....

About your weekend?
