You should remember, Trudy, Inger and Helga?"

Oh, that... well, I get the feeling that in that scenario she would initially try to keep her distance, but then try to get something brief out of it. I don't really want her as a GF; she told me all her secrets about her sexuality, relationships, her body, etc. so I imagine it's very likely she'd cheat on me.

Well that goes without saying. It might not be possible to have a serious relationship at about your age. In the past it was different now there are too many options. It confuses them.

I agree -- not that it is impossible at this age, but that it is very difficult and I don't think I even want that. The two girls I have met wanted lifelong commitment, and one wanted to wait for marriage...

So, you are looking for something in the middle?

Pretty much, a FWB I guess. I don't want any of the other stuff -- don't even think I would be able to afford one!

With that I do not think loyalty is a requirement. Each party is free to date others. So why isn't Adriana perfect?

Because she is all over the place. I get the feeling she wanted a FWB with me but the BF complicated things.

Complicated how? He is thousands of miles away and nobody has arms that long.

And yet, I was not able to break them apart. She goes over a few times a year for a few weeks at a time and gets her fill (no pun intended). I am not sure what I can do about that...

A FWB is not supposed to be trying to direct her life in any way. You can not and should not try to break them up. He is a FWB too. You were trying to establish rules that only apply when you are in a serious relationship.

And yet, whenever I hinted at a FWB-type relationship, she said she couldn't, because she loves her boyfriend.

That is precisely the moment when you should have said goodbye. I mean it, just walked away. She is crazier than H ever could be.

Yes, I should have done that. The only reason she wanted me with her is so that I could satisfy some of her emotional needs -- being apart from her BF meant that there many of her needs not being fulfilled. So she needed me, a guy who could satisfy some of those needs temporarily, before she got the full dosage on holiday.

Since she was and is an extreme user, I would recommend the "Homework Guy" approach on all future encounters.

I will try, but it will be very difficult.

Just open your mouth and let her know where you stand on this. If she says no, then smile smugly and walk away.

Adriana or girls in general?

Each one is a little bit different. For ones of her type and there are plenty of those make it plain as he did, that you don't come cheap.

Yeah, that's pretty much how I want it to be. Over the past couple of months I seriously see no point in committing to a girl, at all -- ever. Unless my mindset changes or something.

Every guy feels like that. Sooner or later one or more of them will target you and then the fun will really begin.

Not really, there will always be some that get through.

I am sure they can be ignored unless they physically stop me... or blackmail me.

You are sure? Hmmm. We shall see.
