You’ve broken up with your boyfriend… for the last time… you hope. But the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know, and you continue to sleep with your ex, eat with your ex, and bend your ex’s ear on the phone about work (which he still doesn’t care about). You, m’lady, have returned to state of an “in-between.”
“What’s an in-between, and what do you mean ‘returned’?”
Remember that time in between when you and he were merely dating and when you were in a full-on relationship? You were probably “hanging out” a good deal without any real borders, expectations, or demands-- hence, in-between.
This was probably the most fulfilling time of your man’s relationship with you-- unbeknownst to you, of course-- and now he’s been re-introduced to the in-between, the milk minus the cow (and the mooing). He’ll buy in as long as you’re selling, and you’ll be selling long time because it’s better than the alternative: an “empowering” slumber party starring you, your in-between friends, and a case of Moscato (the female’s Hennessy)!!!
