See? This is why we can't have nice things

For all my friends who don't understand why I can't be friends with an ex, Avatar spells it out explicitly...too bad The Engineer doesn't know about the blog.

Of course, it's always best to practice what you preach and not have mid-week bro-downs/sleepovers when you're deathly ill.

But at least there's someone there to take care of you/rub your back when you can't sleep all night long.

I'm with you here. I can't be friends afterwards with people I've had relationships with.

I also struggle (am struggling) when a friendship evolves into that 'special grey' area where you starting thinking and wanting more. Yet once you attempt it and it doesn't work, its hard to go back.

Once you cross that line it's nearly impossible to return for me it seems.

I can only be friends when I reach the stage that I think of them and say, "I slept with him? What the hell was I thinking!?"

When all attraction is gone, then I can be friends.

For me it's weird NOT to be friends with someone after being so intimate.

But I see what you mean. And it's much easier if there's no attraction left, like Maritza, which is usually the case for me.

eric- yeah, definitely. I'm not a fan of the grey area

maritza/s* - "When all attraction is gone, then I can be friends."

Yeah, that's kind of the problem, we're not quite there yet.

cybersex doesn't count thought..

online friends with benefits forever!

eric - I can't get into cybersex, maybe it's just because I'm lazy though...

Eric said...

Well I use the term rather loosely. As I stated on my site, its just not a practical activity.

Phone sex is much better. Audio for the win!

I dunno if phone sex is my bag either. I won't say I haven't dabbled, but even during regular phone use my phone arm cramps up due to an old sports injury
