Never get someone’s name tattooed on your body, so the common knowledge goes. Because all love affairs turn sour, and you will be left like Johnny Depp with “Wino Forever” marked on your arm. The tattoo will be a constant reminder of the failure of your love.

 

I had a friend in college who broke up with his fiancée. “Bummer,” I sympathized.

 

“No, it’s ok,” he said, “she was a bitch. I never liked her.”

 

Excuse me? Never liked her? This was the same friend who used to tell us of his upcoming wedding plans. The two of them had picked out names for their future children. Every weekend he blew us off to be with his precious girlfriend. And now he says he never liked her?

 

I think that if you are in a relationship for more that four years, you should have the name of your partner permanently etched on your body somewhere. Ideally on your forehead. Along with the dates of the relationship and how long it lasted. This would serve as a notice to future boyfriends – they could avoid the people with several names crossed out, or warn if the target just got out of a ten year relationship. Having no names would mean something, too.

 

After all, your heart was permanently marred, so your body should be too.

Lately I've been thinking a great deal about relationships. I'm more and more convinced that pair bonding doesn't work for everyone, or even most people.

No, don't get me wrong. I'm a big believer in long-term relationships... mine is going on 13 years, and it's still really good. I just think people should be honest about them.

But you're right, it's not for everybody, and *definitely* not for every pair of bears.

Buddy? You okay? Why the cynicism? I mean generally I agree with you, but one can always tattoo something else over the errant lad's name, and a heart can always come back stronger than it was before.

What's that line from The Fantasticks? "A heart without a hurt is hollow."


I don't think my post was cynical at all! If you were in a 10 year relationship, you should celebrate it somehow... just don't attempt historical revisionism by claiming that you never loved.

I had to reread your post- think I understand what you mean better now.

I think that if you are in a relationship for more that four years, you should have the name of your partner permanently etched on your body somewhere. Ideally on your forehead. Along with the dates of the relationship and how long it lasted.

That sounds like a cool set-up for a fantasy or SF story. Mind if I steal it?

Feel free!

So I was thinking - if I was in full Top mode, and I wanted a slaveboy of my own, I'd look for a young 'un with only one or two names on his forehead, preferably each one longer than 8 years. And I'd ask if the Master died or dumped him, or if the slaveboy left.

If I'm in the mood for a quick hookup, I'd look for a hot man with nothing on his forehead. Either he's new (which can be fun), or he's a whore and nothing last longer than an evening or two!

I sent you a kinky story I wrote to mechstud@yahoo.com.

I don't think that e-mail exists. I used to have a hot mail account but I let it lapse. I think I'm going to get a gmail account, and if so I'll let you know.

I'm supposed to be trying to forget that my ex left me after seven years for some air-mattress. -- As much as my heart was permanently marred, the last thing I want to do is give him the courtesy of acknowledging the damage he's done.
