Sex & the Single Woman: Tug of War

We always want what we can’t have.

This has never been so true in my life as it has been the past two and a half years. From the moment I met one of my guy friends, we have had serious chemisty. My roommates are all convinced that some day we will get married, even though we have never dated. And that’s just it… we have NEVER dated.

I’m not quite sure why. The chemisty is there, and he’s definitely a great guy. Yet somehow we have developed a strange problem. Whenever one of is taken, the other is attracted to him or her. And when that person is taken, the single person is attracted as well. Yet whenever we are both single.. nothing happens.

So what’s going on? Is it a case of wanting what you can’t have? A case of two people who just aren’t meant to be together? Or are we meant to be together and it just isn’t the right time?
