"The rule of the circle"
Posted 06 March 2012 - 06:25 AM
I don't buy it. Never been the case in any other social circle I've been a part of. I refuse to accept this bullshit.
Have you ever heard of such a thing?
. . . and I always wondered why so many women date mostly from internet dating sites instead of from people they meet with common interests. . . with rules like these, it's no wonder they have to resort to that.

Yeah, I have heard of it and I dont necessarily buy into it, but I can respect those who do.
Some good friends of mine would have never found each other in that sense, if they had followed that rule though.
Difference between love with long-term potential and "dating."

Seems like people with this rule would be the highly jealous types that enjoy gossiping about other people's relationships as well as their own.
But what do I know I've never heard of this "rule" before.
You say this now, but when I have a howling pack of Betties flaying me, you n' I are gonna have words, woman.

How about before you are aware they are an ex?
in that case either they weren't a very close friend of mine to begin with (since i was unaware) or it wasn't a significant relationship between them (ditto) and either way my personal code would be satisfied, in most cases. if it was ancient but significant history, i'd ask my friend about it, and proceed with caution.
if i was falling in love, well, that's a game changer. only the closest of friends or family would hold any sway if i thought i'd found my person. i love y'all, but compared to what i have with Jason? i'd risk a lot for a chance at that.
but somehow i suspect we're not talking about love, here.
