I’m The Other Guy.
No, it’s not what you’re thinking so calm down. And yes, I just dared to say the words “calm down”.
He’s the guy your mama warned you about.
I just so happened to be his number neighbor.
Yeah, you read that right.
I’m the Textdoor Neighbor to the guy having one night stands with seemingly the entire town.
And I’m the lucky one who gets to “break up” with his not so lucky conquests.
Turns out, breaking up with most of them wasn’t as hard as I’d expected it to be.
Until she came along.
I was content living my boring life, running a boxing gym and going home to an empty house.
She made me realize that maybe being content isn’t enough.
I’m Jack Cole.
And this is the story about how I became… the other guy.

His hands move from my face, down my arms and around my backside where he grips me tightly and lifts. I wrap my legs around his waist as one of his strong hands holds tight to my butt and the other presses against the wall.
It’s not lost on me that those sweatpants are a friggin’ delight. Men should be mandated by law to wear them every day of their lives. Without anything underneath. I feel him harden against me and I swear it’s been so long since I’ve felt wanted that the combination of his strength and kisses and erection almost send me over the edge.
Kissing to orgasm in twenty seconds flat.
That’s something to be proud of.
But this is more than kissing.
So much more.
It’s giving in to a desire that started burning a week ago when I saw him for the first time in my uncle’s bar. That only built as we spent time together. And when I left to go back to Jeff’s place, it was his face that I missed. His laughter and company.
A week is all it took for me to feel something for this man. It’s too soon for anything more than just a feeling but it’s something worthy of exploring.
And right now, I’m all about exploring.
