I press on…
“What’s happening currently in you life?”
“Is the food good here?”
“The food’s great here. I know the chef personally. He’s amazing.”
Lily orders a salad and the calamari. She responds to my question.
“I met this amazing Chinese guy on Tinder. He’s amazing. Good school. Studying to be a heart surgeon. He’s really far along. Self made. His dad was a cook. Classic come to America and kick the dream and make it. He’s so good. He takes me on really good dates. Always fun, great restaurants. He’s so nice to me. Gives me back massages. He’s really a wonderful man. 5’10” and in great shape. Hot. I love him.”
“No. Not yet. He’s super busy with school and his career. I only see him like twice a month.”
“I have something like that now Lily, and I love it. I like the separation and the alone time. All of my relations have failed because I got to close.”
“He’s so great. So thoughtful. He can deal with me in whatever mood I’m in. He’s so great and I adore being with him. We’ve slept together but never had sex yet. We’ve seen each other naked but it just hasn’t happened yet.”
“He’s a virgin?”
“Oh shit. I thought that too but he says he’s not.”
“I love this guy for you but no guy is going to admit that at his age. He’ll probably rub his penis into your navel and you’ll be like, dude, you have to go south to get to the magic kingdom.”
“But he’s so great. He does all of the right things. I love him and he’s really fit too.”
“He sounds amazing, Lily. I’m really rooting for him in your life. I don’t even care if he’s a virgin which it sounds like he totally is, you’ll rock his fucking world.”
“I love him!”
“I’m a huge fan too. Pursue this relationship with Chinese Heart Doctor guy. I like that he’s romantic and sweet to you.”
“I was plowed after the Eagles game on New Years and he was so sweet to me after that at the Philadelphia Orchestra.”
I should tell you, you should never do Orchestra after Eagles game. Different vibe. You probably passed out.”
“I was banged up but he was so sweet to me and managed my drunken self and I really liked that. It’s like he’s more passive and I’m the dominant one in the relationship.”
“Because you’re dating a brilliant future doctor that you should cherish and relieve that boy of his virginity and rock his fucking world, Lily.
You’re a great girl for him. He cherishes you. You’re beautiful and sexy and you’re taking your time with him. That’s all this sweet genius needs. I’m rooting for you guys so hard! I love romance and innocence! Love is the most powerful thing in the universe. Please lean into it as I have in my life. It’s beautiful.”
I would love Lily to go forward with this really nice man. I have never met him but I think he’s great. If you’ve been reading this blog you know I like my girls with a touch of evil, so I adore Lily.
I was so happy to meet with her tonight. Lily’s great. Smart, interesting and clever. I meet so many people and I get my energy from the folks I meet. But every once in a while Lily comes along and the fire burns little brighter that the rest.
It’s nice to bask in the sunlight of her wonderful rays.
“What’s on for the rest of the week, dear?”
“I took tomorrow off because I’m flying to Orlando.”
I have a guy that sent me tickets to come down and see him for in Florida.”
“I’ve known him since California and he does conferences around the country. I used to totally love him, but I can only go for one day. Just tomorrow.”
“Are you going to sleep with him?”
“Yea, totally. But I’m only going for the day, because I can’t take that much time off from work.”
“Okay… Well have a safe trip and please don’t screw it up with Chinese heart surgeon guy that I love.”
“I won’t. Florida guy paid for my air fair and is going to give me more money.”
“He didn’t say. I know I’m staying at the Disney Swan.”
“Okay. sounds fun. Just be safe.”
“I talk to my mom about what I do.”
“She sees it as me dating rich guys and them wining and dining me and is okay with it.”
“Do you tell your mother that all of these men are married and are cheating on their wives to be with you?”
I watch my beautiful Lily pause. I can see why she is irresistible to these men. She’s smart, sexy, and absolutely beautiful.
“No… I didn’t mention that to my mom.”
I love a person that customizes the truth. Because that’s how we all deal with our realities.
“Thank you for your time Lily. I really want you to come back to the salon to tan.”
She has to go home and pack for Orlando.
We get the bill and there are no drinks on the check. (Fucking yea, Roman) Just drank for free. But he has no control over the food so the bill was $25.
Lily is impressed by my power.
I pay the bill and drop a $20 tip for Roman because he’s amazing.
I notice that during this encounter, that it has played out in a very specific way. Baby showed up this time. She was on point. On time. I was happy to feed her and give her drinks. Lily was amazing and very revealing.
More than I could have expected.
I hope the next time I see her, (If there is a next time) She wants to eat some delicious gelato with her.
I cash out and realize that Lily will never kick in on the bill because she’s a sugar baby.
I relish in the fact that I got to be a sugar daddy to this sweet lovely girl. Lily trusted me enough to meet me for drinks to help feed my blog, but stayed true to her creed. The bill came and it was my sole responsibility. Of course it was.
I turned to her and felt it. I got to spend time with this brilliant wonderful woman, but that came at a price. Even though I’m not in her world, I have to pay when I hang with Lily. It’s automatic. I was happy to be her guy tonight.
I liked that she made the time to meet with me and made me pay. I like it. Lily is a woman who’s doing her own thing and even if you want to interview her for your blog it’s going to cost you.
Well played and I actually like the feeling,
Can’t wait to see you again Lily.
I walked her all the way home to her apartment.
I text her that I had gotten home safe and I was so happy to meet her
She said she’d swing by the salon soon.
I finally got to hang out with this extraordinary lady.
