Yes indeedy. I think its about time I blogged about this. I’ve heard people claim to have them but alas I’ve never been able to manage getting into one of those. Call me a sad, silly girl, but I’ve always been afraid that I might get emotionally attached to the person. Maybe I won’t, but why take the risk? Falling for a fuck buddy will only make this a real mess and cease to make the person what they were initially intended to be.
Since I’ve never had one or been one, I’ve been thinking of what it would actually entail. Two strangers who meet, have an insatiable desire for eachother and become booty calls for eachother? Two friends who are attracted to eachother and decide to sleep together regularly with no romantic entanglements? The second one would seem the most logical explanation but I find that one the hardest thing to accept. When friends turn into lovers, how can there be nothing emotional about it? Doesn’t that more or less mean a relationship? Please pardon my ignorance. Like I said, haven’t ventured into those tempting waters…yet.
What about one night stands then? I’ve always had amazing notions of those. Followed by many sighs. From a whole list of songs that tend to overly romanticize them ranging from that soppy one from Heart about a woman wanting a baby from a stranger to one by Journey that I’ll admit I like quite a lot. Don’t Stop Believing, I think the title was. About two strangers who find themselves lost and offer eachother comfort for the night. Why only for that night? If it was good, wouldn’t you want more? At least, and I dread to say this, since I’ve been chickening out on this whole thing, wouldn’t they want to become fuck buddies?
And another alternative. How about not questioning or branding lust by any other name? Sorry Shakespeare, but in this case, called by any other name, its just not as sweet. Lust knows no reason, from my point of view, at least.
Screw (pardon the pun) what it’s supposed to be called and give into it. Let it happen once or twice or over and over again. Simply because you want to. Hmmm…. putting along those un-branded lines, things seem a lot less scary n’est ce pas?
