Here’s the deal darling boys and girls. I’m having a little conversation thingy on Thursday that I expect you to be at (you’ve read the tweets, right? RIGHT!?), but an opportunity has dropped into my lap that I just couldn’t pass up.
Now, the idea of having Justin Timberlake be my FWB tickles my fancy… (mmmm) and while I’m bitter that JT hasn’t released a song in what feels like forever, he has been burning up the big screen. So when my favourite movie blog offered me tickets for a preview screening of FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS I snatched those passes up and did a little happy dance.
Then I saw the date…
Fack. On June 23, I’m having a bunch of men Talk to Me and (hopefully) whisper sweet nothings (read: dirty things) in my ear all night.
And while I would normally break my rule about going north of Bloor to see JT with no clothes on, the idea of having a bunch of men whisper sweet nothings in my ear will win out every time. So darlings…this is where being my friend has its benefits (see what I did there?) I’m going to share my passes from Xavier Pop with you lovelies. So if you can’t make it downtown to Talk to Me, you can go uptown and take notes on how to be a good FWB.
This is all I ask:

I’ve advised you darling boys on what to say when you break up with a girl…but I left out something that I realize is not second nature to a lot of you…
Have you seen Up in the Air with George Clooney? He plays a guy who fires people for a living. Without fail, he goes through a series of steps to ensure that the person has been properly “transitioned” out of their jobs and on with their lives.
I’ve had a couple of conversations recently that made me realize that when you guys are breaking up with girlfriends/FWBs/randoms, that y’all are missing a few steps.
I talk to you and you say “we’re through” but then I find out that she’s not done…and that it goes beyond just calling or emailing you non-stop (the things you ignore post breakup). I’m finding out that y’all still get hit up via BBM…that she’s stalking you via social media…and my favourite: you still have some of her shit (or vice versa)!
You’re leaving all these loose ends and…sigh. Let’s put it this way: if this was a person you had fired and you had left this many loose ends…you’d have a wrongful dismissal suit on your hands.
So darlings, in order to effectively “transition” a girl out of your life, I’ve made a handy checklist that you can use (over and over again).
Before you even protest or joke about it, let’s be honest – once March Madness is over, a bunch of you will be “transitioning” the Winter Wifey… uh huh.
(Yeah. You’re welcome.)
