So within my group of friends here in the states we all started to worry about one in particular. She has been spending a lot of time with a guy that we have all singeled out as a complete ass. He has a girlfriend of 4 years, in another country, and whilst he’s been abroad on exchange has flirted with virtually every girl.
Not necessarily a bad thing. Guys and girls can just be friends, right?
Well apparently not.
My friend is smart, really smart and initially rebuked his advances until said ass told her that he was in an ‘open’ relationship with his girlfriend back home.And being told this suddenly made it ‘ok’ for my friend to accept his moves. Next night they had done the deed. And have done so repeatedly since then.
Now I’m all for a woman being able to pick and choose her sexual partners, have one night stands etc. as much as she wants. But when it’s someone I care about I have to say I’m a little biased. I’ve never heard of anyone whose managed to just be ‘fuck buddies’. To leave all emotion at the door. I’ve never known of someone not getting hurt. Maybe it’s just because I believe that when you’re in a relationship a guys dick stays firmly in one of two places: with you or in his pants.
Come the end of this last semester he broke things off, just as he was headed home for the holidays. Convenient, or a coincidence? I think the former myself. And now days before he’s due to be back in the states he’s told his American girl that he’s dumped the original girlfriend and wants to ‘re-evaluate’. I think that’s definitely suggests convenience over coincidence.
So what do you think? Can guys and girls just be together for sex? Or does emotion ultimately get in the way?
