I am not looking for my first time, as that happened years ago.
The Tremont Hotel Chicago was situated in an enclave, surrounded by the city view just off of the Magnificent Mile.
It was the second time she had come to visit and I was not looking for a good time.
I was a lover seeking love.
“You can close your eyes to things you don’t want to see, but you can’t close your heart to things you don’t want to feel no matter how hard you try.”
That quote is in reference to just some of the things I have been feeling quite deeply lately. I’ve had a lot on my mind, [...]
She is beautiful, smart, charismatic, ambitious, spontaneous and sexy in every imagined way. She is everything you have wanted in a woman which for a time was perplexing because progress was slow, if any. She says she is simple, you say she is the least simple woman you have ever known.
