This post is for my dearly beloved guy friends. I have many, and you know who you are. I hate it when people say that guys and girls cannot “just be friends”. People that say this hold fear in their hearts of letting people in I think… sure, guys think about sex, oh, once every fifteen seconds (and I’m sure many girls, including myself, are not too far behind that), but so what? So what if they even happen to imagine the girl that is a friend in one of those sexual scenarios… that’s bound to come up, but the point is, that they can keep it in their pants.
Besides a few very close girl friends, I happen to think that my guy friends are the best, and closest to me. Many of them have become almost like brothers to me. I also think that I have a lot of masculine qualities, which can be attributed to having an older brother myself. I love UFC fighting, horror films, playing pool, drinking beer and whiskey, and I hate drama. I love the easiness of having guys as friends. You can talk shit to each other without getting sensitive, not see each other for awhile and pick up right where you left off, and they make you feel good. I have a lot of girl friends that share these same qualities too. 🙂 And I don’t think I’m unique… I think a lot of girls feel the same way I do. I basically just love my guy friends to death!
Okay, so here’s the other side to this… the side where I will partially give in to those disbelievers… the people who like to throw everyone into a generalized category. Yes, I strongly believe that guys and girls can just be friends, and I have proved this many times. HOWEVER, I also believe that the best relationships are bred from two people who make their true beginnings as friends. Sometimes I imagine, sifting through my guy friends, who might be a good potential as a loving partner. There are so many that I love, and sometimes I think, can I reallllyyyy love this person?
I have already stated many times before that I am giving myself away to the highest bidder, the one that loves the shit out of me like no one has before. The one that sees me as the most beautiful person in the world, and accepts all of the good, along with the bad. Would I like this to be one of my guy friends? Maybe! There is one very close guy friend that I have that I already consider my potential soulmate (more on this later). He tells many people when we are around each other as a group, that I am his favorite person in the whole world. He knows deep down how I feel about him, but he can’t seem to allow himself to feel those much deeper feelings. So, maybe he’s not the one… maybe another of my guy friends is the right one… or not! :p Like I said, it’ll be the one who can’t, nor does he want to, hold it in… and professes his undying love on bended knee. Wow, too much to ask for? Hmmm, I think not!
And until that day, I have my guy friends to support me, get crazy with me, indulge my inner “guy”, and NOT feel the need to hook up with. If all of my friendships with guys turned into relationships then I would have A LOT of relationships, so please everyone, throw your misjudgments away about this outdated rule, and believe, that yes, many people are evolved enough to have platonic friendships these days. Welcome to the future! And a special shout out goes out to all you beautiful, awesome guy friends out there, and you know who you are… you rule dudes.
