Why do women have to always fall in love and mess up a good thing?
Sound like fighting words, right? Well, this is the logic I was working with when I was a single lad. No matter what I told my prospective “friend” upfront, sooner or later they would want to change the rules of the game. Like a true player, I wasn’t having it. Revealing their feelings just meant that it was “time up” for them.
Before y’all start trippin’ on Ole Rich, keep in mind, I was doing this when I was in my early twenties (I’m almost 40 now), so imagine my surprise when I was talking to a friend of mine long distance and she started laying this conversation down about how she was now digging on this dude that she started out with as just a “friend”, and she was wondering why he wouldn’t commit. I just shook my head, although she couldn’t see it through the phone, and replied “You may as well hang it up or dig in for the long haul. Dude sounds like me from back in the day, he’s not going to change game mid-stream.”
I eventually had to switch to a different conversation, because I could tell she was stuck on doing what she wanted. She was being a glutton for punishment, just because the loving was good. What a shame. So it got me to thinking, if she’s over 40, attractive and intelligent and g’ing for this type of behavior, how many sisters are out here doing the same thing? Inquiring minds want to know.
