Just got back from a weekend in Boston...

My "boyfriend" (the one who doesn't want to be committed to me) and some of our friends spent a weekend in Boston. We had a fabulous time except for the part where we agreed to break up and be just friends. My question is this: One of my ex-boyfriend's friends was flirting with me all weekend and asked me out when he found out that we had broken up. Is it too bad to want to go out with him?

No. All these rules and regulations about dating is such nonsense. If two people are attracted to each other then that's all you need to know in my book.

That's how I feel about it, too. I think we would all be much happier without all of the rules about dating. On the other hand, I think I would be hurt if one of my friends decided to date my ex-boyfriend.

But I think that attraction happens for a reason and that not pursuing it is just stupid. I don't think it is often that we find people that we are physically and intellectually attracted to. It's usually one or the other. When we do find both it seems a little crazy not to give it a shot.

Time in New England took me away
To long rocky beaches, you by the bay
We started a story who's end must now wait

And tell me
When will our eyes meet
When can I touch you
When will this strong yearning end
And when will hold you again

I feel a change coming
I feel the wind blow
I feel brave and daring
I feel my blood flow

*sigh*

You answered your own question. Good luck and welcome.

C'mon - don't leave us in suspense.

Does "dinner" have some dirty double-meaning when the kids use it today?
In my day it was "we went out for drinks"....
