*cringe* no...there is more than enough sexual going on at other times, I just don't want to TMI the internet.
In my mind, it's not uncommon for men to stick around for sex or the hope of sex or even the hope of dirty pictures, at least until something better or more accessible comes along. It's more uncommon for them to want to stay on the phone with you for hours when they're NOT getting anything out of it sexually.

Pilots are kind of notorious for cheating. Opportunity is just everywhere and they're on the road and all that. So be careful.

You know, I think I'm actually kind of tired of this. We basically talk all day every day for the last several months and then yesterday, I didn't hear from him at all. Had a hell of a bad day yesterday for a multitude of reasons, and it would have been cool if someone I thought was one of my closest friends (..and then some), had been there. But he wasn't. I knew ahead of time he had another date with the same girl last night, and so naturally didn't hear from him all night either.

This morning he's like, "I was actually busy and then I had a date and slept over there, still no sex."

I get it now. My companionship apparently is only needed when he is bored and has nothing better going on. And the sexual side of things? I'm just a cheap watered down substitute until he actually gets SEX again. And then I'll be out the window anyways.

I'm glad I'm figuring this out now. His birthday is next week and I'm such a fool I had almost made and sent him baked goods for it!
