It’s amazing how several days can make all the difference in the world! I was so stressed by Melanie the other day that I couldn’t focus on telling about it. So, it turns out Melanie had hooked up with two of her boyfriends a few months ago…at the same time. I couldn’t believe what she was telling me at first, but apparently the three of them had unprotected sex over a weekend’s time in the midst of heavy alcohol and assorted drug use. That blew my mind because she didn’t seem like the type. Her ex- boyfriends were former work-mates of hers and had been involved with each other before they dated Melanie, so when she dated them sequentially, she had no idea they were bisexual. Either way, she had deeply gotten involved with the second guy, Matt, and actually lived with him for a while until they broke up. She said she was heart-broken by his departure and couldn’t figure out what the deal was, but as it turns out, Matt got together again with her first boyfriend, Craig and the two ended up continuing their prior relationship. It was confusing, but eventually made sense. In the end, Melanie called Matt on a night that she was drinking a bit much to tell him that she missed him. That resulted in an invite to her place and a night of wild, unprotected sex. More recently, on an insurance physical, she had a positive HIV test – a short time after her and I got together. She just assumed it was me who cause this. Really?!!
Now Melanie has a positive HIV test, and we have been together numerous times, and I have been with other people numerous times since. What is weird about this is after Melanie had a major melt-down when she told me, we ended up having sex again. WTF, why not, after all I was already exposed, and she already had it! Did I forget to tell you that she felt incredible? She wore the most exquisite lingerie that highlighted every curve, and nothing was more exciting than removing it piece by piece all the way down to her naked, smooth, bare skin! Anyway, Melanie explained her sortie that got us into this situation, saying that she really wanted to get back with Matt and even agreed to spending a sexual weekend with the three of them together, each trying the other out. She gave me EVERY detail. It kinda turned me on as I looked on in horror! I still love her though.
It was strange how all my worries were gone while I was with Melanie, but the moment I left her place, I freaked out about the possibilities of having a lethal disease. I called up a friend of mine, Bill, and met up with him and Virginia, who is an ex-girlfriend of mine. We hadn’t met up in some time, but we always keep in close contact by phone and social media means. They knew I was stressed about what to do next, but the answer was obvious…get tested. Why bury my head in a hole and expose others to a horrible fate? So we met up at Mistral to catch up and burden my friends with my plight.
A few hours later, a few laughs, and some good food finally lifted my spirits up. Virginia was right that my risk wasn’t that high, but either way, I was concerned about Angela and everyone else. I don’t know what I would do if I spread it…
So a few hours later, my arm is out on the block and the phlebotomist is sticking the needle into my vein. She is actually quite cute, a bit short and chunky, but she has potential, I thought to myself…My God I am such a horn-dog. I asked her out and she said ‘yes’ as she sent off my HIV test…..
