Single, Married, or Tweener


There exists a relationship status somewhere between the booty call and the girlfriend.

I call her, the tweener.

She’s the perfect plaything… there when you want her to be and disposable as soon as something better comes along.

She’s the chick that you like, have fun with, but she isn’t really a priority in your life.

A placeholder, a warm-body to chase away your loneliness.
A cute girl to have on your arm, until a cuter girl walks by.

But I wonder, in a world where there really aren’t absolutes… and finding “the one” is nearly impossible…

Is it wrong to have a tweener?

And more importantly, is it wrong to BE a tweener?

Where did you get that photo from? What exactly is happening there?

I think the problem with tweeners are that one side gets attached and the other remains in it for "fun". One becomes a doormat, and the other becomes the oblivious bad guy. It messes up people!

Chrissie said...

that would be the tweener on the left, and the soon-to-be girlfriend on the right;)

Chrissie said...

you're right sarah... the shift from tweener to doormat is SWIFT!!!

there's nothing "wrong" with being a "tweener", just understand that you are a tweener, and that you will be discarded... sooner or later.

and if you aren't discarded, then that means the guy settled on you... and you DON'T want that.

i guess it's a no-win situation... so just have fun while it lasts;)

Chrissie said...

good point anon... but is it possible that if the tweener ISNT discarded that it is because the guy realized he was wrong for having her as only a tweener in the first place?

or will it always be the result of "settling?"

I thought "tweener" was the name for the state of an penis between flaccid and erect. It's a medical term...

yeah, wouldn't that be lovely...

it's possible, but it's rare. the guy is already getting what he wants out of you: a fun time, somebody to hang around and chit-chat, somebody to make him look more appealing to other girls when he's out...

he already knows what you have to offer (pretty much...).

the chance he'll have some epiphany this far into the game and realize the "tweener" is actually the one...?

not likely.

Thanks for the info Dr. Tom...

Ironically, that form of "tweener" has a lot in common with the "tweener" I was talking about.

And Anon, what's with all the "YOU"s in your comment???

This post was about A TWEENER, not ME the tweener;)

Sarah said...

I would agree tweeners (defined by both Thomas G. Henry and Chrissie) never win.

haha...

i used the pronoun "you" in my comment to address A tweener... SOME tweener... ANY tweener...

not necessarily YOU the tweener.


honestly... ;)
