String-less Fun

The trailer for the upcoming movie No Strings Attached shows nothing relating to online dating per se; however it does address the idea of casual sex, which some online daters seem more fond of than others. I've had a couple of encounters in the last year that fall near that category, but I've realized that I'm just not cut out for that type of relationship (or lack there of, as the case may be). Is anybody? It just seems so emotionally complicated. What do you think?

I can't do the casual sex thing--I can't even date casually. I just end up frustrated that it doesn't get serious or frustrated that it IS getting serious. If that makes any sense.

Exactly. No one likes being frustrated.

I'm the same way. Incidentally, I think you should write about when to date again after a breakup. Jason and I broke up yesterday, and I'm surprisingly okay with it. I didn't think I would be, but we had had some conversations recently that made me realize he wasn't the person for me. We're going to be friends, and will likely end up quite good friends. I insisted on taking some time apart before launching into a friendship. I've decided to take the holidays as Single Time and maybe start dating again after the new year. How much time is enough time?

I'm sorry to hear about you and Jason, Anna. I like the idea you suggested though; I'll work up a post soon.

I had to participate in this commentary because I feel like I can really relate. I broke up with my boyfriend/best friend of 2+ years three months ago. Initially I felt totally resolved about the whole thing. I was convinced I had made the right decision. Now, three months later, I have no regrets, but I do miss him. A lot. I have been trying the whole 'dating' thing and so far am not enthralled by the whole process. I have dated two guys for a more extended period of time (one month each), but find myself incapable of being either serious or casual. I feel very stuck in this limbo phase and find myself wanting to run back into the arms of my ex, and I'm doubtful that he would even accept me. Oh, matters of the heart!
