Sunday Wrap-up

Time goes by so quickly these days.  It seems like only yesterday it was Friday and I was skipping to my car at 5:00 p.m. to begin my weekend.  But alas, Friday was two nights ago. So here we are again, Hello Sunday.  So what's up everyone? How was the weekend for you?  Anything good?  Share with me. Mine was nice.  Friday night I met some friends for dinner and a movie.  Followed by some wine and great  great conversation.  We proceeded to dissect the movie we had just watched.  The topic was whether or not having a "Friend With Benefits"was actually do-able (no pun intended) without someone eventually getting emotionally attached.  Coincidentally, the name of the movie we saw was "Friends With Benefits".  Ooooh yeah, I got my Justin Timberlake fix!  Ok back on topic, so the group I was with was torn, half said "yes" totally do-able and the other half said "absolutely not do-able"  I was team "Yes".  I believe and have had such relationships before.  Strictly physical, no emotional ties whatsoever. What? Don't judge.  We ALL have needs.  But by the same token, I have also been the one to get emotionally attached as well.  That has only happened to me once.  And it will never happen again.  The ramifications of that one-sided relationship drained my soul.  It wasn't like I went in hoping something more would transpire, I knew it wouldn't.  But going in, I was already in love with him.  I thought I could handle it.  Clearly, I could not.  So anyway, some of the guys were saying that they've met many women who "claim" they are on the same page with the "men" as far as "no strings attached" but in actuality, when it came right down to it, they found that those same women, tended to fold as a result of their emotional attachment.  That in sentence in itself, brought on dagger stares from the females in our group to the males in our group. Almost simultaneously we all blurted out, "Guys do it too!"  And they do.  This entire conversation was had for over an hour.  We kept trying to change the subject but would always return to discuss the same thing.  Finally, after several bottles of wine, we agreed to disagree on coming to a definitive conclusion. We were too drunk to continue diplomatic like that. 

Saturday was family day.  I spent time with the parentals and my sibs and my nieces and nephews.  I love those little munchkins so much! They are my heart.

And today was "R&R" day for Yvonne. (aka as "me") i.e. Rest and Relax day.

The dreaded Monday is on deck kids, lets all hit it out of the ballpark!

I would have to be in the 'no' camp, I don't think you can have a friend with benefits without somebody getting hurt sooner or later, whether guy or girl. Sounds like you had a pretty good weekend, too bad stupid MOnday has to come.

I have had that conversation before and it is never pleasant. Always ends in an argument.

Years ago, my daughters and I used to argue about this. They were sure you could do it and no one get hurt. Now they have found they were wrong. Someone did get hurt - every time.
Even if you don't get hurt, remember you could hurt someone else.

Alessandra- I think that as long as both of you are on the same page, then it can happen. But of course, there are those instances when one or the other goes off track.

Leah- ha! Thank you! I will check it out tonight.

OT- from what standpoint though? what is the arguement? I'm curious.

Belle- yes very true. Someone is bound to always get hurt, unfortunately.
