Rules of Engagement

April 4, 2009

Ok, how many of you are familiar with the term “Maintenance Man”? Well for those of you that are not, let me explain. A Maintenance Man is someone that a woman gets together with occasionally while she is in between relationships for the sole purpose of having hot, steamy sex.

When you have this type of relationship there are definitely ground rules that must be adhered to. Before we go any further let me explain something to you. Most of you, I am sure, are aware of the term “Fuck Buddy.” You are probably thinking, “Well Grace, isn’t that the same thing?” There is a distinct difference. A fuck buddy is someone you know, an actual friend, if you will. You may even have had a relationship with this person in the past.

A maintenance man is someone that you do not know very well. Someone you are acquainted with but not really friends at all. You have a physical chemistry and want to explore that.

Most women become involved with the maintenance man or fuck buddy until Mr. Right comes along. We women have our needs too, just like men and we need to have them taken care of just like men.

Some people can embark on these types of relationships with no problem. For others, however, this arrangement is not for them. The reason why are varied but have a lot to do with the afore mentioned rules. Here are some of the rules that are involved with an maintenance man or fuck buddy:

No one can get emotionally attached whatsoever. Screw your brains out then keep it moving.
There are to be no demands on anyone’s time. You get in where you fit in.
There are no “dates” or vacations.
There is no talk of the future.

These are just a few of the rules involved. I’m sure some of you could come up with your own rules to add.

My question to you is how do you feel about this type of arrangement? Have you gotten involved in this type of relationship? If so, how did it work for you?

Me personally, I could never embark on such an arrangement. I am the type of woman that must have an emotional connection with the person I am with. I would eventually start to develop feelings or worse yet, start to feel used.
