No, I’m not pregnant. But that would make some headlines, don’t you think?
From January 29 until March 13 of this year, I wrote about a particularly interesting dating experience of mine in “I’m With You, Kinda Sorta”. I was going strong, reaching Part V of the sad saga. However, with all I was dealing with emotionally at the time, on March 19, I informed you dear readers that I wasn’t going to continue the “Kinda Sorta” series.
I didn’t anticipate the number of people that would voice their opinions about how disappointed they were with my decision. I didn’t realize just how many people were following the story. I was writing it for myself. To vent. Sure, I’d love people to read about my experience, but I didn’t think people cared that much. Turns out, they did. “I’m With You, Kinda Sorta” joined (and I think eventually even eclipsed) “A Virgin Suicide” as the most popular, talked-about, highest-viewed material I’ve ever written…anywhere.
I didn’t anticipate that I would have a clear enough head at this point to continue the story. Back in March when I made that unfortunate announcement, I didn’t think I’d ever be ready to move on. I thought I was done. Well, I am done with that whole experience that consumed a year of my life, but I’m here to tell you that I’m not done with “I’m With You, Kinda Sorta.”
The story must go on. It will go on. It will end.
I owe it to the folks who follow this blog, who read my material, who are genuinely interested in my thoughts and life experiences. More importantly, I believe, I owe it to myself. By finishing this story, I wish to close a chapter of my life that was both extremely memorable and utterly disappointing. I’m not going to rush the ending because I want to get all the details lined up and accurate. I want to finish this story the way it deserves to be finished: with kid gloves. In a way, I’m treating “I’m With You, Kinda Sorta” as the poster child of not only this website, but of my writing ability. Please be patient, but also be aware that it’s in-the-works.
Thank you so much.
