Lacking in essential Bobness

Just to make one thing crystal clear: "Bob" in this Jacqueline Passey post is not me.

Really. It isn't.

(Nor did commenter David Alexander grow up to be me, either, in case that's occurred to you.)

Which one essential is lacking, then: the fantasizing part or idecision part?
I could understand the reflective "he who don't get involved don't get burned again" mode (that's been my own) - yours doesn't seem to be that, however.

And unless you assume we're too lazy to follow "about Chaz" link, why do you think would we take self-admitted "evil statist" barely post-virgin in 18-to 24 age group David Alexander to be you?

I can tell you this, though: ethereal fairies will turn into vengeful witches every time when subjected to conflicted expectations long enough. I'm not saying fairies do not exist, it's that their beauty appears on a different plane, more reality-rooted. But you should know that, in your "after 48" wisdom, shouldn't you?

The getting of wisdom has proven to be a slower process than I might have hoped.

And I'm not quite sure whether I'm indecisive or not.

Men who believe women are ethereal fairies are bound to be disappointed.

True enough; I've always figured that the Next Level in any relationship comes when the participants are no longer desperate to conceal perfectly ordinary bodily functions. (Although being boastful about them, I suspect, is a negative indicator.)

A definite negative.
