Blogs are like vacuum cleaners: everyone has one, and all of 'em suck

ok I know that is not an original, but it fits

Before we go any farther, I should give all of you some background info on me. I am a New Yorker with Midwestern roots, but no desire to go back anytime soon. I work as an investment banking associate, and bartend part-time. Just broke up with a girlfriend of 6 months or so, well, lets be honest: she broke up with me. Lets call her Ana. (by the way, all of the names in my blog have been changed to protect the innocent) To be honest, my relationship with Ana was one of those relationships that was over in my head long before it was over for real so I can't say that I was that heartbroken. Plus I never stopped having sex with an F.W.B. that I met before i met Ana, so maybe I had it coming.

I met both Ana and Annie (my FWB) at one of the bars that I work at. You would be amazed how attracted women are to bartenders. Maybe it has to do with the fact that you provide the alcohol? who knows. And if you know a few bar tricks? fuggetaboutit. Not complaining, just don't understand it.

Anyway, back to Ana. She is from the Czech Republic and she is a very strange bird. The she was good in the sack, and she was very liberal with her compliments of me, and I have a feeling those might be the only two reasons I liked her. Who doesn't like a good lay and ego stroking right? But then she got both flaky and needy, a very weird combination right? Well she would cancel plans from time to time for mysterious reasons, while at the same time complain that we weren't seeing enough of each other during the week. If you know anything about I-Banking hours, then you probably know that they are not good for relationships.

Annie on the other hand, is a teacher in Jersey, so we knew going in that we would only be able to see each other a couple times a month. We both agreed that we didn't want to get involved in a serious relationship, so in a way it worked out perfectly. Her personality is very strange. She always seems uncomfortable for some reason. I don't think she is as comfortable in her own skin as most women I come in contact with, and thats one reason why I haven't really wanted our interaction to advance beyond the FWB stage.
