Here's a question that comes up in conversation sometimes:
Can men and women just be friends?
It seems that quite a lot of people believe that no, they can't. Not without any type of attraction or feelings that take it further than a friendship.
I'm not so sure.
A lot of my guy friends say opposite sexes can't simply be friends... to which I think, "Huh... interesting, cuz you're just a friend. Right?"
Apparently I am wrong. (Me? Wrong? It's rare, but it happens.)
And I suppose that just shows my ignorance, because it is often my male friends I'd least expect who later tell me they have feelings for me. Or used to.
Does that mean that all of our friends of the opposite sex aren't really our friends?
It's frustrating. I get along with guys better; I have more guy friends.
But I'm not attracted to them all, nor am I trying to date them.
Maybe it's situational, based on circumstance...
Or maybe we're naturally predisposed to want... everyone.
...Cuz I'm not really into you.
Single life is so complicated. It's just better when you're spoken for and happy.
* Note - My lovely gay boyfriends are not included in the aforementioned discussion, as they are repulsed by the very idea of myself and any other creature of the female variety and therefore friendship is just that.
Happy long weekend, ya horny non-friends of the same and opposite gender! I'm outta here!
