We Will Cross That Bridge When We Get To It

In this dating monologue, ANDY responds to the girl he is dating as to whether or not they should be an “exclusive” couple.

ANDY:  Alright, I’ll speak…this is the last time and then I don’t want to discuss this anymore; just let it happen the way it needs to happen, without questioning and pressuring me all the time.  (beat) I realize it’s been six months.  Six months and I understand your concern.

To be honest, I’m not ready for a serious relationship.  I’m not.  It’s not that I don’t enjoy your company.  It’s not like I don’t love being with you and doing the things we do.  I just can’t see myself being locked down right now.  Not locked down in the sense that we aren’t dating, I respect us but locked down like we are committed just to one another.  I’m not out there seeing anyone else and I’m not saying that I want to.  I like the way things are right now and I’d like to keep it that way.  Nobody is getting hurt and we are having fun.  So, I don’t think we should pressure ourselves into thinking that we should be something more, right now, when things are good the way they are.  If we feel, down the road, that we want to step things up a bit, then we will cross that bridge when we come to it.
