The "But It Still Feels So Good" Excuse
I'm dating this guy who told me after the first date that he can't be monogamous.
He doesn't believe in it. I slept with him anyway.
Then I realized it would be bad to date him, so I told him I couldn't go out with him.
But then I missed him. So now we're doing this weird thing where we hang out, go on dates,and then have these little "sleepovers."
I sleep over at his house and we just cuddle.
It's so nice, Greg. We make dinner, watch television, laugh.
It's really sweet and I feel so close to him.
He doesn't try anything and we just enjoy each other's company.
I know I'm not supposed to expect anything more, but I'm feeling like his girlfriend, and you never know where this could lead.
It feels so great to stay over and wake up with him!
Is there anything wrong with this?
Dear Slumber Party,
Let me see. It wasn't hard enough for you to hear that the person you are dating doesn't want to be monogamous.
But then you slathered on the extra hurt by continuing to see him while he may be sleeping with other people.
So now you're feeling like his girlfriend, but without any of the perks. Not even sex.
What kind of weird science experiment are you doing with your emotions?
Don't get me wrong, Madame Curie—I know it's nice to have companionship and wake up with somebody that you really like, but that's what pets are for.
Pets are God's way of saying, "Don't lower the bar because you're lonely."
Clearly you know yourself well enough to know that you aren't cool with sharing your man, and by the way...you shouldn't be cool with it!
You deserve a boyfriend of your very own who you feel safe enough to have sex with.
The old-fashioned idea is that women withhold sex when they want power.
It seems like men can play that game too. Why buy the cow when you can get the intimacy for free?
Oh, it's so simple.
If a guy is happy lying around in bed with you eating cookies and watching old movies, and he's not gay, then he's just not that into you.
