After much deliberation, I ended it with Party Gent. I’ve never been the one to break it off with someone before, so I was pretty nervous. It ended up being fine and we were actually on the same page (that we were basically friends with benefits), so it was very drama-free. He really wants to stay friends, and I’m in no position to turn down friends, so that’s fine I guess. Although he did say that he wouldn’t mind if “anything was to happen,” but that it’s “good to acknowledge we aren’t going anywhere.” (No shit you wouldn’t mind. I’m cute!) I don’t really intend to sleep with him again, let alone just hang out for funsies (because remember, we have very little in common), but I guess we’ll see what becomes. I’m much more comfortable flaking on a “friend” than ghosting a “we still haven’t come up with a word for this… in Argentina it’s amigovio, which is a hybrid of amigo(friend) and novio(boyfriend) and basically means someone you are not-yet-seriously dating (read: casually boning), so let’s just use that term for the time being.”
Other than that, I’ve been off my app game. I need to come up with new opening lines for Bumble. Feel free to share suggestions or set me up with your funny/cute, but not too cute/smart/adventurous straight guy friends please.
