Are You a Booty Call in Denial?
Word Count: 400
The old cliché ‘love is blind’ is oh so true – especially when it comes to booty calls. I know what you’re thinking: booty calls aren’t love! And to that I answer with one simple word: debatable. Let’s explore why…
As we all know, ‘friends with benefits’ (a.k.a. FWB) relationships are super complicated and usually result in one of the parties falling way harder than the other. Booty calls work the same way. If you really think about it, they’re basically synonymous terms!
So, what exactly is a ‘booty call?’ It is a person with whom you only engage sexually; someone you specifically call for some booty and booty only. Unfortunately, boys are notorious for being booty callers, but you’d be surprised how many young women out there are just as guilty.
If you’re a booty call, you should have a gut feeling that you are one. Even if it’s just your gut questioning the fact that you might be one – you probably are one. It’s a sad fact to realize, especially if you can see yourself really falling for this person.
What are some signs? Well, if you only talk to this person after 10pm, mainly weekends, and whenever you try and text or chat with them on a regular weekday afternoon, it’s super awkward, you’re a booty call. The talk is usually small, and probably reverts back to your weekend plans. Then, after about 30 seconds, it’s off to your separate lives again!
If this behavior sounds familiar to you, the best thing you can do is GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN! Why? Because it’s not fair to you that’s why, silly! If anything, all you are doing is giving the other half of this ‘relationship’ what they want (sexy time) and they are not reciprocating and giving you what YOU want.
You can tell your friends ‘I don’t want a relationship’ as much as you want, but your friends aren’t blind. Chances are, they’ve been in your shoes before. Plus, it’s much easier to recognize what you are becoming from the outside looking in.
If you’ve been in one of these types of flings for multiple months, you’re hope for transitioning into an actual committed boyfriend-girlfriend relationship is dwindling. Once you get comfortable in your ‘booty call’ routine, there’s no escape! So save yourself the heartbreak and gather up your dignity, my friend. You are a boo-tay call.
