Sex & the Single Woman: A Sigh of Relief


There are a few defining moments in the relationship cycle: meeting a guy, the first kiss, the break up, the aftermath. Some of these moments are good, others not so much, but the aftermath is kind of undefined.

Recently I ran into a guy who I dated recently. We were in the “aftermath” stage of the cycle, still friends, but still uncertain. I was worried that dating him had ruined our friendship, that we could never go back to where we were.

I’ve said before that I’m a control freak, so the undefined part of this doesn’t sit well with me.  But when I ran into the guy, I was surprised at how comfortable it was just to talk. It may not seem like a huge deal, but it was a sigh of relief.

I hate that there has to be awkwardness after a relationship. I know it’s inevitable, but it’s so inconvenient.
