I understand your romantic life is a personal and touchy subject.
So as an unbiased third party I’m here to tell you like it is – judgment-free, constructive, and blunt.
Rules for dating a guy in a band
Well, aside from immaturity and an aversion toward confronting things head on, I’d say it’s because we live in a time where any act that’s decidedly can freak out the desired sex — even when said act is one that was intended to end things.
I have a friend who has mastered the art of ripping off Band-Aids.
Her honesty is appreciated, they tell her, and yes, the cake made it to the fridge.
I know this is the right way to do it; we’re adults, we should be mature.
When talking about “ending things” in regards to the non-relationship relationship, I like to keep those words between quotation marks for a reason: in this day and age, where most people are “just hanging out” as opposed to dating, a full on Break Up (phone call or in person) seems pretty dramatic for someone you’re not even calling your boyfriend or girlfriend.
But the elusiveness of our hook up culture — no titles allowed, ambiguous exclusivity rules — lends itself to extremely vague guidelines when it comes to putting the kibosh on the situation was with that other person. It seems like we’ve got two options, and they feel a lot like removing those Band-Aids.
Usually she’ll give the guy a fighting chance to prove her initial impression wrong, but when she’s made up her mind her phone comes out quicker than a broke-neck beer bottle at a high-noon duel. They often look like this: “I had such a fantastic time getting to know you these past few weeks, but I’ve decided I’d rather do my own thing. ”And if she’s really feeling punchy then she’ll add in a joke like, “Hope the cake got home safely!
”From what I understand, she’s never received a troubling response.
I’d now like to refer to one of the greatest chick flicks of all time.
