We both didn’t want a relationship, but after a few weeks, I started to have feelings for him, and he’d made it clear he didn’t want to be involved with anyone. A few days later, I sat with some girlfriends over lunch, and told them my painful tale. I thought that by being single for all of that time, I’d been taking an opportunity to work on myself, get comfortable with being alone, and enjoy my life without a partner until I was ready to date again.
I couldn’t lose my babysitter in all of this mess, too. Yet the only thing I’d been doing was keeping my head barely out of the water.
Most first dates didn’t make it to a second one, and the whole thing seemed like a waste of everyone’s time. It wasn’t far out of town, and only overnight, but I hadn’t had the means or energy to travel out of town in almost two years. Two days before we planned to leave, I looked over at my toddler eating lunch and saw the tell-tale signs of pink eye. Considering the friends with benefits option after the babysitter fiasco seems like I’m setting myself up for failure. I can say “I don’t want a relationship” with more truth to back it up.
So, I’ll accept my friend’s offer, and be friends with benefits, except ones like hope or expectation.
