Idealist Poly Blog Part 16- The polyamorous lifestyle makes them look younger!
Well, my date went well Friday night with the new guy, Tom. I was immediately very attracted to him, so that was good! We had an incredible dinner and then went to an upscale dance club. A very interesting thing happened there!!! Wow!!! Even in the Deep South…… I noticed two couples slow dancing together on the dance floor. All four of them were in a huddle and they danced the entire song like that! That is just something you don’t really see much down here, especially among people in my age group (late 40’s/early 50’s). I watched them for about 30 minutes and noticed that they would change partners and the women would dance together too. You could see that they were very familiar with one another!!! The four of them would huddle up in different configurations…..it was the perfect quad!!! My thought went immediately to my polyamory forum friends and how I can’t wait to share this!!!
Anyway…..one of the women looked like a former client of mine (Lynn). But she looked at least 10 years younger than Lynn. However, I thought “I sure would like to talk to these people, so I’ll act like I think she is my client and that will give me a way to meet them.” So, I tapped her on the shoulder and when she turned around she recognized me…..it was her. I knew them!! So, I complemented them on how good they looked etc and how much fun it looked like they were having!!! I said I need to join my date, but I’d be back.
My date agreed to move to the area where this quad was, so we did. We began to talk and share with them and soon they had included us in the fun!! And it was truly fun!! I was mainly focused on the women, since I already have so many male lovers and what I’m really missing is the female lover energy in my life. My date said that during one time in the evening, Lynn said “she is hot” about me!! So- the way we left it is that my client couple said they would like to see me again, but I’m not sure if they really meant it and if so, exactly what they meant. So- I’m going to let a week or so pass and then contact her. See if she wants to go to lunch and just talk about it with her. They are around my age, both attractive, professional people who have raised their kids and apparently ready for some fun!!!! Now that I think about it, I’m thinking it’s the lifestyle itself that has made them look so young!!!
I had an incredible night last night with John (the best lover I’ve ever had in my entire life)and I’m heading out for another outdoor concert today with Richard, so I will write about that later!!
The key to life is in being fully engaged and peacefully detached simultaneously and authentically in each moment.
