Tell it like it is.
A man who builds a bridge to a woman he isn't interested in rekindling a relationship with, has really created a path to her front porch, where she is laid out like a door mat.
* She is emotionally invested. Not ready to let him go, not yet. He (gasp) could change.
* He has already put in the emotional time. It's over, but why not get something else out of all that effort? At least till something better comes along...
It's in WIKIPEDIA, titled THE EX-SEX, next to drunk dialing and casual relationship.
TEAR DOWN THE BRIDGE
-- Booty calls are like vampires, appearing in the night and disappearing before it becomes light again.
-- You end up naked just moments after he arrives and ALONE just moments after that.
A MANMADE bridge occurs when there is a gap between two people, a gap that is THERE in your best interest.
