Sorry, This is Why You Can’t Be Friends With Your Exes

This topic comes up every now and again, and although I have my strong opinion about being friends with an ex, I always like to do research to see what others say and experience when it comes to compartmentalizing and realigning matters of the heart.

I found numerous articles, but the one that I’m sharing today is a great article to read, especially for those of you who have tried and failed to remain friends with exes. Personally, I choose not to remain friends, that’s a story for another time, but I do know that in rare cases it is possible.

I found Jen Kim’s article “Sorry, But This is Why You Can’t Be Friends with Your Ex” online at Psychology Today.

If you have a healthy, platonic friendship with clear and distinct boundaries, that never or rarely impacts your current love relationship—then this article isn’t for you.

It’s for the 80-plus percent of people out there (that’s my random unproven calculation by the way) who have struggled and failed, or are currently struggling to maintain connections with people they once thought they would love forever (or longer than a season of their favorite tv show).

Side Chicks Guide to Making a Complete Fool of Yourself

What has our world come to when females can search online for tips on how to become and remain a cheating guy’s side chick?!?

Yep, on WikiHow, females can see how low they can slither to be the best side piece that they can be. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw eleven steps that current and hopeful side chicks can follow to get and possibly keep a man (who already has a girlfriend/wife):

  1. Give Him Space
  2. Keep Things Interesting
  3. Refrain From Having “The Talk”
  4. Go With The Flow
  5. Don’t Ask Questions
  6. Don’t Try to Spend Holidays or Birthdays With The Guy
  7. Let Him Get In Touch With You First
  8. Always Look Your Best
  9. Let Him Think He’s The Only One
  10. Don’t Obsess Over the MAIN
  11. Get Out If You’re Not Happy

The site does provide a mild warning, but they failed to list all of the potential pitfalls to slithering on your belly as a side chick. What they don’t explain is the self-worth, esteem, dignity and respect that you have to sacrifice running behind some dude who is most likely sleeping with his main chick, you, and several other females.

You’re busy chasing down someone else’s leftovers because you didn’t get enough love and confirmation as a child. Well you aren’t going to get it as a side chick either. Go get some counseling for your daddy issues before you crash and burn, and/or get physically beat down by that guy’s girlfriend/wife. 👊🏾😖

Side chicks are either content getting scraps or dumb enough to think those scraps will add up to something magical—not realizing that the same scandalous things he’s doing to his Main chick, are the same things (or worse) that he’s going to do to the side chick if she does ever replace the Main chick. Men don’t reinvent themselves in relationships, they recycle what worked and revamp what didn’t, and then test it out on the next woman. So silly rabbit, you’re about to get a huge dose of the last load of poop he tried shoveling down the mouth of his last woman.

And the guys are dumb enough to think the side chick is oh so “extra special“, much more special than his girlfriend/wife…”oh look how she gets all dressed up for me, how attentive she is, she’s much more adventurous than my girlfriend/wife, she laughs at my jokes, she gives me space, she’s so easy going, she always takes my calls, she doesn’t expect anything from me, she makes me feel like a man, she’s only sleeping with me, she strokes my ego“–nope you idiot, she’s following the Side Chicks Handbook on how to get hers and play you at the same time–and if you are ever dumb enough to make her your Main chick, she’s going to make your life a living hell.

I’m not sure what’s worse, the women involved in creating this 11-step list, or the women who rush to read and follow the instructions. I took snapshots of each step and put them into a slideshow. I decided to add some appropriate music to entertain you, because you definitely need to be entertained while reading this comic strip. Check out this masterpiece for yourself and laugh aloud at all of the male and female dummies out there getting caught up in this karmic cyclone…
