Burning bridges

Long ago, a commentator on our blog pointed out that men may striiiiiiiiing women along for one reason.

They don't want to "burn any bridges."

(Ya know, those bridges who's lights burn brightest at 4 a.m. on a Saturday night).

So is there any truth to this fact???

And if not, why else would a man keep in contact with a woman he has no interest in?

I think women are often guilty of constructing bridges that should have been torn down long ago, we bridge the gap between what WAS and what we really WANT.

And maybe that's the biggest problem...

Instead of providing passage, we're creating a barrier instead.

not just men, women do it too. i used to blame it on "being too nice" to let someone go completely. now i realize that it was a totally selfish act.....i wanted a "back burner" guy.

Men are very predictable with sex. If you lead a man to water...he is going to drink...and he's going to remember where the watering hole is so he can return there

Oh Dottie... I think I've recently realized there is no such thing as "too nice," myself;)

And anon, I see what you're saying, but aren't men usually terrible with direction?!?!
