Responses to Polygamy My Ass!

--"Yes, it is true; a European man can be in love with one and have sex
another. The one he loves is obviously the one that has taken his
heart not
his body. Sex is very open in Europe and most European do not have
hang ups. It is sort of like a test you know. If one is committed
have sex with another, it will either make the relationship stronger
weaker. It is like testing your feelings really."

--"Believe me, this is NOT a European thing, and it’s NOT common in Europe. I was born and raised in Holland (arguably the most liberal country in the world) and believe me, if MY boyfriend would dare suggest something like that, he would find his ass out the door ASAP.
If you love somebody, you don’t want to share them, and you don’t need anybody else, in ANY culture. He’s full of shit."

--"I'm from northern Europe and I have
heard of this being common anywhere. Just as it is uncommon here it is
uncommon over there, believe me. I think it's more of an individual
than anything else (whatever this guy says). Please don't think all
Europeans are this way. Northern Europe is the most liberal place you
find and even there - same rules apply. If you are in a relationship
should stick to one person only.
Like you, I can't understand how you can love someone and then be with
someone else too. I guess this is the ideal situation for some men, but
as a woman I wouldn't (and couldn't) tolerate it.

Anyway, good luck to you. There are tons of great European men in the
who aren't into this sort of stuff. Keep your eyes open and take care
that heart of yours. This Austrian guys sounds like trouble."

--"I live with a European and know many...its a complete line. Total crap.
not common practice in Europe. Don't ever fall for the "up-tight
thing. What's common is slimy foreign men using the age old whopper. I
wouldn't trust him to save your own life. Enjoy the tension but that
one's s
scam artist. Stay away!"

Polygamy My Ass!

Crushed by my crush. I may see things differently in days to come, but tell me now, where is the merit in this exchange. It was lust as first sight. I flirt with a man for five days. A beautiful, thirty-six year old, Austrian marine biologist/photographer with a name that rolls off of your tongue. He's supposed to be photographing me in front of bed legs (the main focus of the shoot), but its so captivated with me, he forgets about his assignment and shoots several rolls of me alone. He acknowledges the attraction is mutual. On the last night of the project, we wind up tipsy and naked in a hot tub. After several hours of intense heavy petting in the pool house and the hot tub, he casually informs me that he would very much like to be with me, but I would have to be a part of his pre-existing four year relationship with the woman he loves. He says that only Americans have the jealousy hang-up and if I would just open my mind to the possibilities, he thinks that I would find it satisfying. Now maybe I'm confused from the booze. Perhaps I'm disoriented because I've been up for two days straight. Call me American. But if I'm going to like someone this much, I want them all to myself. Is that so wrong? Should I get on board with a new relationship for a new millennium? FUCK NO! I'm not spending precious energy getting someone hot and horny so he can go home to his girlfriend.

Opinions Wanted: Would any of my loyal subjects be up for a love triangle?

I Have Arrived

I was just checking my web stats (vanity will surely be my demise) and I saw that someone was referred to QueenReese.com by Google. Yes Google now acknowledges my expanding empire. (insert evil villain laugh here)

Final Straw

Even with no source of income I ordered DSL. No up front charges and $44/mo for the uber-fast. It will be active next Tuesday. As much as I appreciate a free dial up connection, I could no longer bear to wait several hours for each song to download off of Kazaa, when I know that with DSL you can begin listening to the song before it's finished downloading. White girl ain't got TIME to pirate music at a snail's pace!

Last night I had a quasi-conversation with someone whose only contribution was “Right on”, with varying tones based on the mood of my comment. I could have told him that I was a psychopathic stalker who has chosen him as my next target and I would have gotten an encouraging “Right on”. I could have told him that I was hit by a bus and I'll never walk again and I would have gotten a sympathetic “Right on”. Cute and stupid doesn’t work for this Modern Monarch. I’ve decided that I don’t want to hang out with you again. (Unphased) “Right on”.
