No strings attached

It is 2.22 in the morning and I can’t sleep. I was watching an episode of 90210 (which I absolutely love btw) and in this series one of the main characters (Teddy) decides that he no longer wants to be in ‘no strings attached’ relationships. Now for some one like me who has never really been in that kind of open relationship, it is a completely alien concept. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that when you go on the first couple of dates nothing is guaranteed but why would you intentionally enter into something knowing that it is going nowhere?? I do not understand why you would meet somebody and on the same day have sex with them, sleep in their house, and expose yourself to all manner of diseases for a couple minutes thrill, and a good story to share with your mates.

To all encounters there are strings attached especially for us women – emotional. Whether it is you suddenly or gradually viewing yourself differently because of these conquests, you will. I’m not saying this is a case of other people judging you – your conscience is more than able to do that.

Many women have such bad attitudes towards men – tell me this isn’t evidence of strings.



About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: My literature blog: NMx

    Women like stability.

    It’s a match made in hell, no? 🙂
