Relationships are not helping most people in this recession. There is so much baggage that comes with the territory along with the many unwritten rules you have to abide by. Not to mention you have to spend time, money and energy that you can you use for something way more lucrative. So, how do you satisfy your erotic urges with out the stress of a relatioship? You should become the “other person.” Now, not just anybody can be the “other person.” It comes with it shares of perks and complications.
The first perk of being the other person is it is a money saver. You are never obligated to take that person out at all. So that means you never have to worry about dinner and a movie. Now you may have to worry about paying or going half for a hotel, motel or rental car but that is purely circumstantial. Either way, in the long run you save money on holidays, dates, anniversary, and “oops I messed up and now I have to buy you something days.”
Reason number two why being the other person is just a good idea is because the sex is the best. Usually the person engaging with the “other person” does not have an ideal sex life. So the “other person” gets all the wild pinned up to the wall, ripping the clothes off, “man I got a charlie horse but I am about to cum” kind of sex. It is the type of sex that you want to testify in front of the whole church that you feel orgasmic at the thought of the booty call you are going to have right after service.
Last but not least, one of the best perk is that you have full control over leaving right after sex. Have you ever dated a person that snores loud enough to disturb your plants? Or have you ever had a sleep fighter, not a street fighter but a sleep fighter. You know that person that kicks you in your spine and pushes you off the bed. Well say so long to all of that. You can get all your thrills that happens in perks two and kindly leave right after or make a fake excuse for that person to leave.
Now, with all good things, there is a flip side and the first complication is getting caught. There is nothing worst than rolling around hot and sweaty with your “associate” and then you see an angry silhouette in the doorway. Even worst, having to change your number and/or email address because a significant other is hurt because their mate likes engaging with “other people.” Either way those awkward situations are a chance you are willing to take for being the “other person.”
Two, you get lonely being the “other person.” Also, you sometime get a little envious of the couples you see walking down the street holding hands, kissing at every intersection. Then knowing that you are going home to an empty house and maybe some internet porn versus a warm body, well you feel kind of lonesome.
The third of many complications you have when you are the “other person” is catching feelings. That is one of the ultimate flaw of being the “other person.” If that person is already in a relationship, obviously that person has a hard time committing. So catching feelings is basically killing the whole essences of being the “other person.”
Being the “other person” again has very good benefits as well as its awkward, mind blowing flaws. It is just your choice to see if you can handle it.
