The sitcom continues

So, if you read my last entry you know the sticky situation between me and my soon-to-be roommate. Well it just got even more complicated. Our 3rd roommate just got offered a job on the set of the new Forest Whitaker movie... in Baltimore. This is great for her, but for the 5 weeks that she is in Maryland it will just be me and Matt... alone in the apartment. I was counting on Sarah to be a buffer between Matt and I; keeping things friendly a decidedly non-carnal. I really hope I have enough self control. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I want to give in to his advances more than a little. Ugh! Dam hormones, dam lust, dam virginity!

Maybe this happened for a reason. But I hope everything goes well and maybe your new friendship with Matt will get close. But do what you must do to make your life comfortable and if something happens then it happens.

How long do you think that Sarah could act as a buffer, even if she wasn\'t gone for so long? Don\'t you think that there would be times when you and Matt would be alone, say, if she went on a date or had an engagement one evening? I think you\'re resisting perfectly normal desires, Joe. Please don\'t damn lust and hormones, welcome them as your natural right to have them, and if you do lose your virginity, make sure the sex is safe, and I hope it\'s a wonderful experience for you. Complications are always going to arise in any relationship, don\'t beat yourself up if this happens, it\'s part of being human. Best of luck to you, just go with the flow.
