I don’t talk to Alex very often (once in the past two months, to be exact). But when we do speak, we stick to the basics. We talk about family, friends, work—everything except each other's love lives. Of course, that’s the one thing I’m really curious about. Whenever I’m talking to him, I always have to stop myself just short of asking the elephant-in-the-room questions: “Are you seeing anyone? Have you met anyone new? How many girls have you dated since we broke up? Did you really like any of them? How serious were they?” The list goes on.
Dennis Duffy is that ultimate incarnation of that person that everyone ends up dating and they don't know why. They just trick you into accepting them for a few months. Everytime you see them, they haven't changed, and are convinced that you still want them. People like Duffy never learn, and they never get easier to be around.
