I have been blogging about dating and relationships for a long time – yet somehow I am still amazed at the amount of crazy misadventures that happen in Atlanta. Many of these dating misadventures play out on radio – specifically Q100’s The Bert Show. Their entire bit about “closure calls” alone is enough to send you back to your sofa on Saturday nights.
People call into the show to ask for help in tracking down the guy or girl who pulled that oh so lovely disappearing act (my personal favorite!) without “closure”. The thing about closure though, it should not even matter so much. Why do you need to know the reason they bailed? The fact that they are gone is not enough?! But, I digress.
One recent closure called involved a woman who could not figure out why the guy she was seeing never called her back. Sure, he was engaged to be married while she foolishly believed he truly wanted to be with her.
She actually wanted to know why he did not come back for her after he broke off his engagement. You’re probably already guessing how his closure call went down: He was never interested in a relationship with her. It was just sex to him. The end.
I wish I could say this doesn’t happen often but sadly it does. Women confuse love and sex. Men take full advantage of no strings attached sex – except there are strings, lots and lots of strings. People feel entitled to get what they want and get angry when they don’t get it.
When it comes to dating, it’s time to dial back the crazy admit that sometimes you have to charge it to the game. If things are not going the way you want them to and you decide to stick around, you can’t play victim.
Why do you think so many people confuse love and lust? Have you ever felt the need to get an explanation as to why someone bailed on you?
