Here in Texas we have a saying: “Different strokes for different folks.” Maybe elsewhere it’s the same, I dunno – but basically, it means you don’t get your panties in a twist over people who don’t do things the way you do them.
I’ve been following some of the comments and reviews on DEAD END, and I’ve actually been surprised. There’s been a lot of talk about who the main character should end up with, and everyone says something different. Even more so, there’s been a lot of reviews about what a ‘slut’ Alex is, even to the point of saying she has sex with everything but the animals. (Uh, just to clarify – while Alex does a lot of heavy flirting, she actually only has sex with TWO men in the entire series, Calen and Banker.)
But as Fred points out in that story, “everyone loves someone they shouldn’t, maybe even more than once.”
So now, I’m curious… Do you believe this is true? Do you think a person has to end up with a single someone or do you believe that grown adults can learn to open their hearts and love each other for all their differences? And have you ever experienced feeling of loving someone you shouldn’t – or of loving a certain someone while also loving someone else in a different but still ‘full’ way?
