Can I Get Open-Ended?

I used to think that relationships always reached a point where you either had to break up or get married.  The end of the road just comes up and you have to make a decision about what to do next. I’m sure this still applies to many couples, but it seems as if some of us prefer/need/seek to have open-ended relationships.

What are these open-ended relationships? Some of you may be in one right now. They are the pseudo relationships that don’t consist of much relating at all. One or both of you are saying and doing just enough to keep the person around and interested. Perhaps you are waiting for someone better to come along, just in case. These don’t end well, usually. Both individuals deserve better than to be in a non-relationship, wasting time and energy.

I think it is always good dating practice to let someone know that you have absolutely no intention of getting married or being exclusive. At least let them know what to expect. So how do you date someone with no goal of marriage or commitment?

I think it’s harder than many of us think. I know many single people who say that finding someone who just wants companionship is tough. Even when they are able to find someone to go along with this casual, companionship plan, someone begins to want more.

Would you be willing to be in an open-ended relationship? If you met someone that could meet all your “needs” for companionship, do you think you would tell them there was no promise of a commitment?

What would you do if someone you met and got along great with told you they aren’t into exclusive relationships? Could you handle that kind of arrangement?

I am not a football fan, but I too believe Vick is going to come back with a vegenance and will play better ball. I’ll take a stab and say he’ll probably go to the Saints or Raiders. He has a lot to prove to those who wrote him off and the best way is to be the best! He’s going to reinvent himself to the world of football!

kimmie, yes, exactly. But without motivation of wanting commitment from the other person, and that person requiring mutual commitment, it’s not likely to happen.

Cemeeli – Vick is cool and all. I hated they did him like that. But when he steps foot in the Dome to play against my Falcons, I’m going to hope they put him on his a-double snakes like any other QB. Oh, I’ll probably wave to him as he goes in and out of that tunnel…but when the whistle blows it’s on.

What up Blog Fam!

I haven’t read any of the comments but since the topic is sooooo me let me respond.

1. No such thing as a “non-relationship” that’s any oxymoron. Chicks need to stop creating illrational saying and then trying to live by them but that’s another jam in my toe. Oh and if chicks stop over estimating their value to a dude it would save yall a diaper full. Oh, back to my point; If I tell you upfront I don’t want nor will I…. and you sign on then wha-la relationship and whenever you need reminding I will tell you again and iffin after that you still need reminding, I will show you by leaving you alone. Relationship: An understanding between two people.

2. How do you date me? – Easy, be accountable, be rational, control your emotions and truly, truly like yourself and have some 70’s breastestesess, and nice ankle to calf ratio, and nice lips, and some soothing eyes, and like sex, and some quite sometimes.

3. Not sure this came up but I’m sure it did – For ME, not wanting to be married has nothing to do with fear. Once you experience marriage and know what it’s about you discover you can get the same thing without the certificate. Oh and samething include commitment as well not just sex (unless you gon do it)

@ Tazzee – Have you forgotten how many die hard Atlanta Falcons fans turned die hard – “I love Vick” fans when that man was on the team?

You see how many folks still wear his jersey, right? And, he’s going to do a lil something for Matt Ryan when he play against him. FOR REAL sis.

I ain’t trippin’, i’m just sayin’. :)

I wonder what goes through mens minds right before they cop a free feel off women they don’t or just barely know. My guess is “Two tears in a bucket, fuhhh it….” It’s like they convince themselves it’s really gonna be worth the curse out or slap.

(Not that I think Rell is really gonna make a grab for your azz Stace, but not that I don’t think he might, either hahahaaaa)

Cemeeli – I’m not doubting that there will be Vick fans in the Dome. But as much as I loved Warrick Dunn – when he walked on the field in that Bucs uniform I was screaming for them to take him down. The same will be true for Vick, probably even more because I didn’t like him as a QB that much anyway. But when he was MY QB, couldn’t nobody talk bad about him.

I hope he does well in the league and proves all the haters wrong. But when he steps foot in the Dome – all that well wishing is over from me.

@ Tazzee- I will always be a Dunn fan. Even when he played us coming with a Buccs uniform on.

Now we are not going to fight this year ’bout Dunn cause you can have him. I got my own tag football teammate. :wink:
