Selena: Yeah, this definitely does seem to be a “we just went out a couple of times” sort of arrangement. Once it gets a little further in, honestly, I don’t know how you do that one gracefully.
Shelby: Excellent use of “anvil.” Big fan of the anvil.
Theatregal: Yeah, the fade is most definitely cowardice. But in my defense (for having fade-ed in my life) well…I am a coward. It’s not much of a defense, I realize.
fayezie: Excellent point — if you’re going to have to deal with someone afterwards, or even second-hand, you really need to do a full ending, and not just a disappearing act.
Sassy: Interesting. Two dates, eh? Yeah…I guess after you’ve made the decision to give it a whack THREE times, you should at least have the common courtesy to let them off the hook for real.
mar: I think that most men you DON’T know are also pretty oblivious persons. I have seen/heard of the fade not even making a dent. Some guys just think of that as, “Playing hard to get.” Instead of, you know, “Actually being impossible to get.”
