When worlds collide

On Friday night, I took Pot to a baseball game on a double date with Milo. Pot is just so chill. I think that is probably one of her best qualities. As we were walking together, I honestly thought about holding Pot's hand. But I am not sure if I am ready for that. So I didn't. After the ball game, we went and saw the movie Salt. Absolute rubbish. The people involved in this movie shouldn't be allowed to make movies anymore. It was just crap. I think Milo and Pot enjoyed most of it. Seriously though, 10 minutes into the movie, I called the ending. I even told Pot so that she could verify how predictable it was. When I dropped Pot off, she kinda seemed to linger. I wonder if maybe she was expecting me to kiss her. Milo was in the car with his date so I certainly wasn't going to kiss her in front of them.

On Saturday, House and I went to the demolition derby. It was great fun. I wonder if House felt a little overwhelmed at times cause at the derby, I am probably more hyper than normal. She seemed to take it all in. I know she had a lot of fun.

At both the baseball game and the demolition derby, there were lots of scantily clad tattooed girls (sorry Punk, but you know I love you). This is the reason that I think maybe I wrote previously about mistresses. On an intellectual level, I can have these great conversations with House and Pot and have lots of fun. But on a sexual level, the scantily clad girls with tattoos have always held some appeal for me. They just appear so much more sexual than the conservative girls. I just wonder if maybe some guys are trying to "have their cake and eat it too" by taking on a mistress. I guess the reason I don't go out with more girls like that (the wilder girls) is cause I don't think I would have much to offer them. I suppose there are some wilder girls that don't drink but most of them probably do. And they probably have sex. I just kinda feel torn between two different worlds with neither one really fitting me.

  1. i have been working on a similar post. its quite a conundrum, but the one thing i would recommend is to decide what you ultimately want and operate under that decision. your comments indicate you are keeping the word of wisdom and you seem somewhat(reluctantly?)on board with the law of chastity, so if its important to you, those tattooed, scantily clad girls will never meet your needs. trust me when i tell you that you dont have to advertise sex to be sexual and sexy. there are plenty of "conservative" girls that will rock your world. i forget, have you kissed house? maybe you should try it and it will just flip your lid. you never know. might be worth the leap of faith.

    Sigh... I don't know what to say. Singlemormonchick says some excellent things! Are you taking her advice because you aren't taking mine. I would like to know how House feels about you because of course she has to have her own opinion. DO you think she looks at you like a friend or do you think she likes you and wants it to go further? At some point you need to make up your mind with her because that would be really sad for her to just keep stringing her along. I like her a lot and she has feelings just like anybody else. So if you don't see yourself ever even wanting to try to kiss her then you need to make sure she understands that you are strictly friends.
    Conservative girls can be very sexy too. They just choose to save it for their husband rather then share it with the world. When you love someone (not lust) you will find this so much sexier then a trashy tatooed girl.
    It seems like maybe you aren't quite ready for marriage if all you can think about is having a mistress. If that is something you fantasize about then please save yourself some grief and don't bother with the marriage thing.

  3. I want a lady on the street but a freak in the bed... enough said! I think singlemormonchick is right, but I can definitely agree that scantily clad women are much more sexually attractive. That is satan's plan, that sneaky bastard! P.S., why haven't you posted any of my comments on the side of your blog? Are they not funny enough?

  4. Dear singlemormonchick:

    How am I to decide what I ultimately want? I mean, really, I just want to fall madly in love. I don't care what color her eyes are or how tall she is. I want her to be Mormon but I also want her to be real. I want to be sexually attracted to her. Do you know what you want? Does anyone?

    Love Tripp

  5. Dear The Newton's:

    How am I not taking your advice? I guess I remember you saying that I should try and kiss House. But I am not sure if I am ready for that. And at what point do I need to make up my mind about House. Why can't I do what littlebrother said in one of his comments where I just be a good friend and see if anything comes from it?

    As for the mistress thing, all I was saying is that I understand why some guys get a mistress. I never said I fantasized about it. I know I am not totally ready for marriage but is anyone. I don't intend to cheat on my wife once I am married. I was just stating that I am very attracted to trashy tattoed girls.

    Love Tripp

  6. Dear littlebrother:

    Thank you for representing my point of view. Sometimes I feel like you are the only one who agrees with what I am saying. I think the actual quote is "a lady on the street but a freak in the sheets" but you were pretty close. I kinda forgot to try and post comments on the side but thanks for reminding me. I guess I just don't want people trying to get their comments put on the sidebar.

    Love Tripp

  7. i do know what i want and so should you-otherwise, how will you recognize her when you see her?
    i am not talking any over romanticized love at first sight thing(although i do believe in that), i am just saying that you risk making a lot of bad choices(or should i say MORE bad choices)if you dont know what it is you are looking for.
    the friend zone is dangerous. just about the time you decide that SOMETHING is definitely coming from it, she will be fed up with you taking so long and move on. she will send you an invitation to her reception and you probably wont go.
    if you arent feeling it with house, you just arent and thats ok, but it sounds like some pretty important people who know you pretty well think you make a good match. its something to seriously consider.
    no one is ever totally ready to get married. what do you think needs to happen to be "ready"?

  10. So . . . in all sorts of posts from the last few months you allude to wanting to find someone to get more serious with, but you're not ready to kiss a girl that you've gone on plenty of dates with?

  11. I resent you referring to me after typing the term "trashier looking girls" I may be tattooed, yes, and Lord knows I wear my lustful freedom on my sleeve with the bluntness that I use in my speech, but I happen to dress nicely, not to mention modestly the majority of the time. Bottom line: Trashy is the last thing that I am, thank you very much.

    Ahem, now that that is cleared up -

    Go for a born again Mormon girl who's been there, done that, will do it again, but only after she's married.

    Or wait for me to hit the "born-again" stage, and you can just sweep me off my feet.

  12. Dear Skin.Head.Sheena:

    Duly noted. I changed the text to refer to scantily clad tatooed girls. I meant nothing offensive but I can definitely see how the word "trashier" carries a negative connotation (which I did not intend and therefore fixed). I really don't consider you to be trashy. Born again mormon? I think I could probably use someone with a bit of a past but it isn't as easy as you might think to find someone like that. How long til you think you will hit the "born again" stage?

    Love Tripp
