Life Is But A Dream?

So, I was talking to my friend Lawruh at work today and she was tellin' me about her guy problems (she has a complicated love-life).
Somehow I was stricken to tell her about a nightmare I'd had while back in High School. Not sure how it came up, but...

I had the fancy for Rebecca. Nay, I adored Rebecca. Rebecca had the hots for Jesus. Ibid.
And, as if we were in frickin' Pakistan, she was "dating" ("in the process of being betrothen to") a guy, seven years her senior, that her Dad had chosen for her.

So, anyway, I told Lawruh about this dream from Hell circa 1981:

Rebecca was having sex with everyone but me. I, angry and tormented, walked up to her as she sat on a tree branch with some guy who was fondling her with lustful abandon.

"Becky!" I said, "You're always off somewhere in plain sight having sex with everyone but me! You know how I'm suffering here... Why wont you have sex with meeeeeeee?!!"

As the guy was groping her and suckling at her neck she flipped her hair from her face.

"Bob," she said with desperate apologetic concern, "It's because you love me... I just can't!"


"Oh my God!" Lawruh wailed clutching her hair. "
You understand women!!!!!!"

For any of you gals out there: What the hell did she mean by THAT?!!!!!

Ummm, I can't really help you on this, but I can give two guesses:
1. Some women don't want to be slutty with guys they care about because the guy will think we're...slutty.
2. Some women don't want to hurt your feelings if we know you care more about us than we care about you.

I'm leaning towards the first one.

Thanks, Jen, but I'm leaning toward both.

We're not allowed to tell you.
Jennifer, that's going on your permanent record.

I think its a combination of both with an added dash of a sense of lack of worthiness of someone who REALLY does love them, and a sprinkle of the knowledge that if a man really does love them, they have less power over that man with sex than he does over them with his love.
