One day you take a road trip with friends, just to get away. No baggage, no ties, just boundless opportunity. Meet a few men to add to your list. You’re single, so you haven’t broken any rules. Dating is a sport, let’s say basketball, and trades are made all the time. One man gets replaced by the next. I call it the cycle of life. In the height of your dating extravaganza it hits you. Somehow no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to shake it. You’re no longer a free agent. Of course this means you have to decline all other offers and turn down attractive contracts. No matter, you’re happy. This should be a good season. The chemistry of your team is unparalleled. Stats up, playoffs in your grasp, yet somehow right in the second round you lose. Your season’s over. As you walk off the court with your heads held high and that fake sportsmanship smile, you can’t help but to wonder what went wrong. What could have been? Or maybe, just maybe how easier things would be if you would have kept your options open. Had a few dinners with interested coaches and snuck in a few practices with other teams. Perhaps this is why men keep women on the side.
