The beautiful boy in the a-shirt; Martin has the breakup blues ….

Hi, friends and readers:

A few years ago I posted the photos I am putting up here today. They were a huge hit with my readers and followers, and it’s easy to see why. The young man in the photos is so beautiful. He’s on the cusp between boyhood and manhood, and one instinctively knows he will be an amazing man in just a few years. And that a-shirt looks perfect on him, doesn’t it?

I slept until 8:30 this morning, even though my alarm went off at eight I just didn’t want to get out of bed. But now it’s nine AM and I’m ready to get on with the day.

I spent the better part of last night editing one of my books that is due to be published later this year; it still needs a few tweaks here and there. I ate dinner in front of of the TV, watching a left-wing talk show.

When I went to bed last night I think I fell asleep in about five minutes; I was tired, not physically but emotionally. I regret to announce that my seven-year relationship with my boyfriend has ended, and the whole breakup has worn me out. My boyfriend is an amazing guy; I can’t say enough good things about him. But our priorities in life have diverged to the point where living together doesn’t make sense any longer. It’s a sad turn of events, but I have seen it coming for a couple of years, and now it’s time to turn the page and get on with life.

I have been through breakups before, several times throughout my long life. There’s no easy way to deal with it; you just have to let the passage of time heal your heart. I know I will survive this, and who knows what waits around the corner?

Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.

  1. First off I recognize the young man in the second picture: He is called Vova on a Russian porn site and the pic is old. Once he got too old to be a twink, they said adios.

    Second: I’m terribly sorry to hear about your breakup! I have followed your relationship, as outlined by you, with great interest since you and I are about the same age and my heartthrob is young. No telling how things will work out for me, but I always looked to your relationship as proof that spring/autumn relationships can work. I’m sorry for your pain.

    • Hi, Terry:

      Thanks so much for your kind words; it was good of you to write. My partner and I were together seven years, and I honestly thought it would last indefinitely, but it wasn’t in the cards. Now it’s time to heal and move on. I hope you are doing well.

  2. Sorry to hear about the ending of your seven year relationship. I am just over sixty, as I like to say for a few more years. So we’re close in age. Am currently single and hopefully will find a “younger” man. You often wrote about your relationship so well that it gave many people hope for themselves. So thanks for all your heartfelt sharing and remember that quote “I’m just moving clouds today. Tomorrow I’ll try mountains.”

    —- Some of us work HARD to create ourselves. Some of us work to create and even re-create ourselves. And even do it again. NO ONE stands in my way, NO, NO ONE. Break my heart, and that hurts, but, I am the one who makes me, not anyone else, however effervescent any as they may however be. I am the self creating one in the end. I am my own and my own creating. Not anyone else, however influential. .
    — SO ARE YOU. .
    — As Louis Artimento, the painter, said, in reply, when, my mom said to him, that he was so lucky to have such a wife as he had, plus with the two children, SHE IS LUCKY TO HAVE ME. He is not evil nor self-indulgent nor narcissistic nor alight with selfishness. He is honest. He is a self creating man. His creating is his. PERIOD. . © ♂ 🙂

  4. Yes, it is a pity when you have to let go someone you love, even if you know it’s going to happen. I am sorry for you and maybe also for your boyfriend. I hope both of you will find out there still will be a lucky life.

  5. That’s a Hot little boy in those pics! I’m sorry to hear about your breakup. It always hurts, and you have to grieve. I broke up with my lover of 14 years, and it isn’t easy. Most people have the idea that if your relationship breaks up, it was a failure, but I don’t think that’s necessarily so. I’m glad I had the relationship with my ex, it worked well for us, and we both grew a lot. We just reached a point when it was time to break up, and live our lives separately. Best wishes!
