The ugly truth about dating and relationships

Getting to the stage where you and your new squeeze are finally exclusive (or dating steadily) has its obstacles. The very first being to find a suitable candidate, then having to vie for his/her attention, fighting off the other interested parties, keeping the attention focused and making time to get alone time.

This morning on my way to work one of the local radio stations had a call-in about: "do you trust your partner?". The callers that I heard were women and they seemed to think that it is acceptable to have that nagging feeling that he is up to no good the whole time while he is out of sight. Which is really sad.

Now at the stage of your relationship where the shine of it all has somewhat worn off and you actually do go out without your squeeze - there is always the possibility that some new toy will catch your squeeze's eye. You could now run screaming to a private investigator and frantically trying to access his email and sms messages - or you could stay calm and not become a paranoid freak that will anyway drive your squeeze away.

In the event of your squeeze doing the unacceptable - you will have to make the choice (a) cut them loose (b) scare the living crap out of him/her. If the problem persists (after choosing b) - get that damn third party in a public place with a loud confrontation. Everybody would like to know the scarlet letter wearing, cheap gigolo/whore that cannot keep their knickers on when in the company of decent people.
