Human error will contaminate and/or greatly devalue a standard relationship because of expectations and certain ground rules that will affect almost everything.
To err is human, but fuck. Expiration dating is misleading. The error that one commits when dating with an expiry date is hoping that something meaningful [read: hearts coming out from eyes] will come out from it.
Absolutely nothing has inadvertently affected the chemical components of a material just because it has an expiration date and I clearly don’t see why that can’t be applied to dating either. To start a relationship that has a defined end date; e.g., one of the people is moving soon or the other is leaving in a few weeks. is scary.
Most federal regulatory agencies recommend these expiration dates to be no longer than one year. If that also goes the same to relationships, what are we all left then?
One year relationships! And when we feel that this is it, are we going to claim marriage hastily and wish for the best?
MEN have a shelf-life, when expired, they cannot commit. How much more if they are only good until January 12 2007?
Boyfriend material until proven otherwise, right? Nope. Not enough time to do it. You need to get past Giddyland before you declare that he might be THE ONE. Should dating be avoided seeing that nothing is gonna come out from it? Groan. But its sooo good to date, yea?
Evolution of the dating lexicon started with men and women having casual fun. The boy-meets-girl bullshit — said Mr. Hunbun, sofa boy, as monickered byMitz.
Two straight dates, girl is SMITTEN. One month — she’s ready to say YES to a pre-assumed wedding proposal and schedule a visit to NSO for her CENOMAR. But if an expiration date is involved, should you disclose that you are leaving soon and foil all hopes of a potential “…and they lived happily ever after”?
Who made up these rules?
Still harboring a sense of responsibility for my friend’s sob story on the breakup because the guy after all is my cousin and i wouldnt blame people for saying, “it’s natural! People with your last names are born to break hearts!” Eek. How judgmental. But my girlfriend is really upset and I’m suddenly developing this hate tirade against men like my cousin. Oops. Sorry sweetheart but when she called you and you turned off your cellphone knowing that you were out with friends was the last straw. She was so close to losing it that night and you didn’t even bother to text your expected lame excuse that your battery went dead yada yada…
She: Should I text him?
Me: After that? Fuck no.
She: I need closure.
Me: let him worry about that.
She: I can’t sleep.
Me: Let me worry about that. Let’s go get boys.
She: What about the week after, can I text him?
Me: Not next week,not two weeks after, not next month. If he does, text him back.
She: Will it work? Will we work?
Me: Don’t know. I can’t guarantee that.
Just like that. No guarantees. Never expect.
Which is why relationships should have contracts and not expiration dates. Binding and legal. It may sound like a chore but one reason why we have relationships is because we wanted it to work in the first place considering that we care about the person who we are in the relationship with. I just hope that, it doesn’t have to be in hard copy, when people enter into relationships, they get to agree not only on the technicalities but also on the conditions it bring.
I insert name do hereby commit to Ms. insert name of woman and solemnly swear to remain loyal to her unless she deems unnecessary anymore.
We understand that from now on, sixty percent of our time will be fully devoted to us and that the demands of this relationship should be met with utmost care and patience.
Our presence at every special occasion come monthsaries, anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, baptismal, or graduation is very crucial.
It is imperative that we allow each other to express ourselves and not hinder the other from growing which also means that we should allow room for the relationship to grow.
We cannot ignore also the fact that this relationship will bring the drama and hoopla that it is expected to arise.
I am fully aware of the certain conditions that goes along with this contract.

Mr. Hunbun will be in Cagayan de Oro, Bangkok, Thailand and far from my heart. I may sound like a woman deranged by the deprivation of her men’s affection but this game has looong been tiring. Already. Will someone be kind enough to stay? 😳
They should sell crutches, wheelchairs and a pension plan for the heart.
