Just thought I’d share a quick personal story from the annual Thanksgiving gathering I have with my family. I try not to get too personal on this blog, unless it involves a certain amount of nudity, but I feel it’s therapeutic to get personal with strangers on the internet. So long as they don’t include pictures of my penis, I think it’s good for me.
Family gatherings at my house are always such a festive and chaotic affair. I come from a big family and, as I’ve said before, we’re big on hugging. I also have a number of siblings, cousins, and relatives who invite their friends over to the house. We stay up late, we drink, we play cards, and we just have a genuinely great time.
One thing in recent years has stood out though. More and more of my siblings, as well as my cousins, have been inviting their significant others over to the house for some holiday fun. I know some may shudder at the thought of strangers participating in what should be a family affair, but my family doesn’t care whether you’re related. If you’re going to contribute to the love and are okay with hugs, you’re welcome to join.
I certainly enjoy the extra company. However, this year made me feel like I really need to make an extra effort of sorts. What do I mean by that? It’s simple. For next year’s big family gathering on Thanksgiving, I want to bring a significant other of my own to the big party.
Think of it as an early New Years Resolution. I’ve been single for a while now and it’s getting to the point where it is somewhat disconcerting to me. I’ve been putting my personal life on hold so I can focus harder on my efforts to become a published author. Some of those efforts are paying off so I can’t keep using that excuse. I need to re-focus my efforts to find a significant other I can share my sexy stories with more intimately.
It feels like something that an erotica/romance writer needs for both personal and professional reasons. I write all these stories about love, sex, and intimacy. All the while, my own personal life is lacking in these departments. If I can find someone who can complement these passions of mine, I think it can only help me in my writing, among other things.
So as of now, the clock starts. By this time next year, I want to have a significant other to bring home to the family. It’s going to be a challenge. I’m in my 30s now and there’s a lot about my life I’d like to share. I’m sure my family will give me all sorts of advice, but at the end of the day, I still need to make the effort. Hopefully, by this time next year, I’ll write a post proudly proclaiming that I succeeded in the most sexy way possible.
