“Prince Liam” Returns…and With A Poof He’s Gone!


Imagine my surprise the other day when I was taking a break at the lakefront, and I received an email from “Prince Liam” in Florida, after a year of no contact.

Me: I got an email with an attachment from you. Didn’t open it. Figure your email was hacked.

Liam: No. Just a selfie.

Me: ???? (I open the email. He’s right! JUST a selfie. Not a single word. Just a pic of him standing alone in a public bathroom at work,  looking trim, but very serious.)

Me: Sweet. You look great! (I left out the stressed, unhappy and years older part.)

Liam: Thanks.

Me: But you always looked good to me. (This was true.)

Liam: Thanks.  Back to work. :pp……. (I had NO idea what that emoticon even meant! Call me stupid. It’s just not a big part of my vernacular.)

WTF! What was that all about? I haven’t heard from this guy in about a year. Was he slumming?

I hesitated whether or not to even respond to the pic, knowing full well that he may enjoy that more than a response. Then I thought “be nice”. Don’t play games! (Frankly, my position is that role playing outside of the bedroom, makes for a very poor foundation of a relationship.) Maybe I just don’t want a relationship that badly.

Sex with him was great. But this is where the oxytocin release during sex can addle a girl’s brain! (Oxytocin being the “happy hormone” released in the brain during sex which causes bonding.)

Why do women have to over-think everything? I could go nuts trying to analyze the look on his face in the pic, or his motivation for sending it. Why no smile? Is he looking for “a fix”? Is he stressed? Does he miss me? Is he just bored? Is he looking for sexting?


In truth, the only question of any significance here is, WHO CARES?

If he can’t be direct and make some attempt to communicate other than sending a pic, what’s that all about? He once told me (referring to Mike) you deserve so much more than that. But what is he offering?

This is one of those few times that I absolutely HATE being an optimist! I often miss the obvious, or give too much rope only to find myself hanging from a tree!

I was contacted by OkCupid a month after signing up, telling me I was in the top 5% response rate and asking my secret. I was stunned. I was in my 50's! Beats me! It's not as though I posted racy photos or I was plagued by blinding beauty! However it served it's purpose,in terms of finding dates,but finding a mate? Not so much. Along the way, I had some pretty nutty encounters, some more lethal than others. While my blog started as a retelling of these amorous tales, it's morphed into a myriad of stories, including many from my time on the planet. They range from working with the amazing Henry Winkler, auditioning for Nadia Boulanger, an attempted assault by one of Al Capone's retired former henchmen, and offering a homeless man (who was also a convicted murderer) a place to stay for the night. While most of this is older material but I'm considering penning epilogues or postmortems from my post pandemic, post #metoo perspective, as well as sharing more. So many stories to tell! Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

  1. I don’t even know what that emoticon means and I use a lot of them!

    And how… Well awkward. I’d be like… Umm that’s nice but why?

    I’m a bumberling idiot when it comes to things like that and will often ask Wtf is for lol

      1. I know. Glad he sent the pic instead of just an email. He’s 10 years younger than me. But after a couple years in fl, he looks my age. Lol. Poor boy.

    1. I should have asked why! The other night out of sheer boredom, I emailed him. No response. Funny thing? He should have stuck around and given us a shot. Cuz damn, he looks so much older! !

      1. There’s always a lot of shoulda woulda coulda.

        His loss and I’m sure it just means that he wasn’t right for you more than anything else!

      2. Thanks Sharn. I have no regrets about being nice. I was always taught “make the mistake of extending your hand”. Guess it stuck. When I wrote to him, it was just a newsie letter. I had no investment in his responding. I could care less.

      3. My trouble is I give people to much rope. Sometimes out of curiosity. Funny when they hang themselves. Not so funny if I get hung. Lol. Ah well. C’EST la guerre, ou vie.
