Tin-Can Effect

As a girlfriend, I’m as loyal as a Golden retriever. But once it’s over, that’s kind of it for me. I move on because I just don’t get the idea of being friends after dating. No matter what, there always seems to be a lingering ambiguity, at least on one person’s part. For instance, I went on three dates with Lorenzo last fall and even though we said we’d be friends when I told him I wasn’t interested, he still kissed me when we were out one night.

Maybe that’s not such a great example. But whatever.

Generally, I’m just never friends with people I used to date. And I get kind of annoyed with people who are. I mean, is it just that they don’t want to totally lose touch with someone they were once fond of? Or, maybe they like having a cushion of possibility? Who knows?  (more)
