Recently, an intern who’s on rebound from an unfaithful ex: 25, straight, money, midtown


Time One

7 a.m.

Fuck. It’s Monday. I groggily hit the snooze option to my alarm, starting my sight into haze of a faint hangover. (notice to home: a maximum of three cups of wine on Sundays). I recently finished my first year of grad school; i am today working at a summer internship at a banking company.

7:09 a.m.

Hit snooze once more. Another note to home: You should not visit your seeking fuck buddy on a Sunday night. FB and I also currently resting with each other semi-regularly for two many years. They have no character, but he is gorgeous (blue eyes, six-pack, eight-inch perfect penis).

7:45 a.m.

Always check my personal telephone observe a book from R. the heart beats some faster, and I grin involuntarily. Roentgen and I also matched throughout the apps the other day and get already been speaking since that time. We have been as well busy to satisfy, but we ultimately have a night out together prepared for tomorrow night. The wait has built the exhilaration. Roentgen is just my personal kind: older, profitable, smart. Really Nyc.

9:00 a.m.

Reach my personal office in midtown. It really is just the second week in the job, so everything is sluggish. I am praying they remain in that way thus I can just take pleasure in my summer time.

1:00 p.m.

Mobile buzzes and I see a text from A. He and I also came across a few months ago and have remained contact. He is lovely. I invite him out on monday evening with several friends.

6:30 p.m.

Mobile buzzes again. Uh-oh, embarrassing text from FB. “You really failed to appear to delight in last night …” gender with FB typically never fails, but since I caught my last severe union (we are going to call him G) cheating on myself three months ago, I’ve found it impractical to get damp. G decided a soul spouse — we just clicked — together with gender had been the greatest I’d had. I have generally already been lifeless inside since the breakup.

6:32 p.m.

Compensate an embarrassing reason to FB. Dehydrated from the drink. Blah-blah blah. Make sure he understands i cannot wait for him to rail myself from behind along with his large dick as he yanks my personal hair. We type of feel that commitment provides run their course; its too empty now.

7:00 p.m.

Duck out of the workplace and drop by Barry’s. Meet a pal from school and inform the girl pertaining to R. she is thrilled; she’s seldom viewed me get amped right up about a new guy.

10:00 p.m.

Very early bedtime and so I’m rested for evening out for dinner with R. Text him a number of funny GIFs before passing out.

Time Two

5:45 a.m.

Get up early to hit the gymnasium.

7:00 a.m.

In fact put-on makeup. Shave age



7:30 a.m.

I am agonizing over this outfit. I am satisfying roentgen after work so should be beautiful but proper. We in the course of time choose a sleeveless high-neck outfit with a-deep V. Bless contraceptive for my personal now DD breasts.

9:00 a.m.

Work. Kind of. Frantically checking cellphone for communications from roentgen.

4:00 p.m.

Roentgen texts he’s freeing upwards very early tonight and possibly we are able to fulfill at 6 tonight instead. Yes please!

5:30 p.m.

For you personally to incomparable the big date. Check out the restroom and swipe on a little extra mascara. Exchange houses for deathly unpleasant four-inch heels.

5:45 p.m.

Seize a cab (okay, I probably may have walked, but it is banging hot, and I’m in heels). The guy picked a snobbish club, “the people-watching.”

5:50 p.m.

Ask the waitress for a table. I wish to be published right up drinking a glass or two casually scrolling through my personal telephone as he arrives.

5:55 p.m.

I’m appalled during the menu. The lowest priced


of Champagne is actually $37. Feels like an absurd waste of cash to me.

6:00 p.m.

I have guzzled $18.50 within the last few five full minutes.

6:02 p.m.

I see him are available in outside of the place of my personal eye. He is also cuter directly! He’s got a little bit of a stocky but muscular create (good, I like larger men). Additionally, he’s grinning this large smile, their entire face is lit up, and that I can see their vision sparkle — anything about him right away feels real. We hug hello, the guy orders a scotch in the rocks, and we also settle into an appropriate beat of discussion.

7:00 p.m.

We bounce naturally from topic to subject. Comparable upbringings. Both played activities. Closet nerds. Jobs overlapping. A few people in common. He orders an extra round of beverages.

8:00 p.m.

We have started to get strong. It seems that he is already been duped on, and then he is a single dad with children. Mental red-flag: unsure how I feel about getting a mom… We connection over betrayal, damaged minds, and shitty ny matchmaking.

9:30 p.m.

He is buying drink five. Another small red flag: he is rude into the waitstaff. He snaps their fingers to have our very own waiter’s interest. I hate that, but I’ve usually found rich people drop track of just what it method for be privileged. This guy is unquestionably wealthy — life the full-on UES life.

10:00 p.m.

I would recommend a modification of location. Particular want to see just what this person is a lot like regarding his comfort zone.

10:30 p.m.

He’s extremely cool. We’re strolling through midtown, in which he’s letting myself guide united states. We grab my personal heels off and walk barefoot; I’ve got a powerful buzz going thus I choose get all of us to a dive bar in Turtle Bay.

11:00 p.m.

We are cuddled right up close to one another on a sofa only at that club. I simply tell him bluntly that i discovered his taking his hands at the waiter rude; he takes the comments really and apologizes. He’s interestingly self-aware and secure. I’m liking him more, and my personal leg is actually grazing their even as we start getting nearer and nearer. I believe a tingle of enjoyment.

11:15 p.m.

We eventually trim set for the basic kiss. Oh, thank god, he is a fantastic kisser. Within seconds, we are full-on generating out. And, wait, in fact, I think I Will feel some wetness listed below …

11:30 p.m.

We’re definitely going home together, but we put objectives: No sex throughout the first big date. Extremely, he agrees and asks me personally about my personal STD status. Nothing hotter than a guy who’s concerned about protection. We contrast the newest examinations on our phones.

11:45 p.m.

The guy invites us to UES. I decline — he should arrive downtown to mine as an alternative. Once again, he is super-chill. We are generating out in the cab, along with his hand is found on my internal thigh. Even as we pass through occasions Square, the guy jokes that will be the first time he’s been below 40th Street in years.

11:55 p.m.

As soon as we have for the doorway, the guy goes to pee, and I also quickly switch on some music and seize a container of wine from fridge.

12:05 a.m.

We are consuming and chatting on my bed. My personal brain is beginning to get fuzzy and all of a rapid we are producing aside once more. He is unzipping my dress and sliding their fingers into my underwear. Hallelujah, I Will Be wet! I am tearing off their shirt and battling his gear. He grabs my personal hands and pins all of them over my personal head. I enjoy how commanding their hold is actually, and then he informs me to seize their penis. It’s amazingly big, and I massage him as he requires myself how I like to be screwed.

12:30 a.m.
