    I think the things men feel about women are similar to what women feel too. They too are comfortable with old lovers. We aren’t that different. I wonder if a man ‘circles back’ why not just stay and try and make it work?

    Mr. CEO was right about distance, though. The bad stuff softens a bit. I never forget the bad stuff, I can just choose whether to focus on that or not. That’s why that breakup discussion is so important. I remember every word of that convo whether it was 20 days ago or 20 years ago. And any negative thing he said then will always be in my mind. Women keep score too. Believe.

    “What benefits do I get from being friends with you?” What benefits do you get from being friends with anyone? What an odd way to ask that question. We meet lots of people–at work, at play, through family. Circumstances change and yes, sometimes that means you are no longer friends with these people. But if you play basketball with a dude and he no longer plays do you ask, “What benefit do I get from knowing you now that we don’t play basketball?” It’s kind of a cold way of seeing people.

    My experience is that eventually it does fade like it does with a waning friendship. When the season is over, it’s over. I just let it die it’s natural death. It’s not always so much drama. And it doesn’t have to be so cold. Sometimes it’s necessary but most times the slow fade works just like it does for any other relationship.

      Great question Autumn! I’m sure the answer will vary depending on what man you ask.

      I totally believe that some women keep score. However, I think men and women may be keeping score of different things.

      I agree that some relationships are just seasonal. Like you stated, some ‘die’ and others simple fade as time passes.
