I got some disturbing news a couple of weeks ago. Yet another one of the men from my not too distant past, a guy who “really, really liked me” but wasn’t looking for a commitment, is now in a committed relationship. I now know of 3 who fall into this category from the last 4 years. There may very well be more, but we just haven’t stayed in touch.
I thought about it for a couple of days and then called one of my good guy friends, the one who’s an ex (pretty much the only ex who I’ve successfully made the transition into good friend status with). I told him that I feel like a fluffer. A relationship fluffer. The girl that gets guys ready for their eventual relationships, but who isn’t actually good enough to have a relationship with.
He laughed and said, “you’re so much more than that”. And then changed the subject.
