As well, it is recommended to read Part 5 of Workshy Joe’s series ‘Men Who Go Ghost’, which inspired this series
In the last installment of his series ‘Men Who Go Ghost’, Workshy Joe makes the following statement:
Like it or not, there is something other-worldly and remote about men who eschew sex or long term relationships completely.
Having been such a man for more than half my life, I agree.
This year as my 40th birthday approached and then passed by, I often thought about how I’ve spent most of my time on Earth thus far without any relationships with women or not even rubbing uglies with them. I don’t feel ashamed or miserable about it…but only one experience of nookie in all this time? Unlike me, most people throughout their lives do have partners, or sex, or both.
Yet, if I went back in time to late 1988, met my 17-year-old before he went to university the following year and told him how things would turn out, at first he would be stunned (I/he wouldn’t even get laid at uni?!?)…but after that initial shock, he wouldn’t be surprised after all.
As well, he would even smile with both anticipation and satisfaction at the mostly solitary life he would come to live as me. The Black and Blue Ghost was already there.
And for now, until if or when I decide to go Game instead, he’s still here.
Until next time, stay well and take care 🙂
