Laying Down the Law

I’ve never had a problem standing up for myself.

My momma taught me to speak up for myself (maybe a little too well).

never be afraid to say what you feel

So when it comes to dating I’m quick to tell a man exactly what is and isn’t acceptable behavior.

I hate playing games and I don’t care if it hurts your feelings I will always tell you the truth.

tell the truth

Apparently that’s all wrong.

Recently a friend of mine told me all that does is give a  man an exact blueprint to your heart and your vagina.

He says you should keep them guessing and let them figure it out for themselves.

Otherwise you’ll just get your heart broken.

Joe Schmo will figure out exactly how to get in your pants (because you tell him).

Then hit it and quit it.

I say that’s setting the poor guy up for failure…

The only way relationships are successful is with open communication.

open communication

What about you guys?

Are you upfront about expectations?

Do you play relationship games?

Do they work??

But we can still be friends…

Have you ever stayed friends with an ex?

It sounds like a great idea until someone’s feelings get hurt AGAIN and then it gets awkward and ugly.

There’s no easy transition from “I’m in love with you” to “let’s be buddies”.

I have actually remained friends with quite a few of my exes.

What can I say? Like my Mom, I have a hard time throwing some things out.

For those of you who don’t know, she’s a border-line hoarder. ILYM 🙂

This ONLY works successfully if you STOP SLEEPING TOGETHER.

I know this part might be really hard for some of you.

So here are some pointers on NOT being an emotional whorebag:

  • Do NOT get drunk with your ex.

Not alone, not at a party, not in ANY place where you can achieve penetration.

Which when you think about it, is pretty much anywhere.

So dude, DON’T GET DRUNK WITH YOUR EX.

DON’T DO THIS!

  • Give it some time man!

You have either broken someone’s heart or had your heart broken.

Grieve! Cry! Break shit!

Do NOT pretend everything is sunshine and roses.

It’s not!

You’re allowed to admit that and take some time

Or allow your ex to do the same.

This actually makes you an adult. Just make sure your break-down is done in private and STAY OFF FACEBOOK!

  • During your time out:

DO NOT CALL THEM

DO NOT TEXT THEM

LEAVE THEM THE FUCK ALONE

If you have to; write their number down, put it somewhere safe, and delete it!

It’s never easy at first, no matter where you fall on the broken-hearted scale.

But it’s always a lot easier, IF YOU STOP SLEEPING TOGETHER!

And dude, seriously, delete that fucking number!!
