I laugh when women say “He and I are JUST friends. Men and women can be just friends.” Women think like that because they think like women and think that men can distinguish between being a friend and being someone they take off their clothes with and do adult things. Ladies, let me allow you a look behind the curtain of Oz. WE CAN’T! Gay guys are probably the reason for the assumption that all guys can be “just friends” because gay guys really do wanna be your friend (and discuss fashion). When straight guys are sitting across from you as you share a story about your best friends relationship problems and he nods his head appearing to understand and be interested in what you are saying he ACTUALLY is wondering what you would look like in the morning wearing one of his tee-shirts while you made him breakfast.
The truth is if it weren’t for the sex I really think that guys would always hang out with guys. Think about it. It’s a big deal to have a “night out with the boys.” We drink beer, watch sports, talk about sports, talk about drinking beer, drink too much beer, talk about how we COULD have played in the NFL, etc. Guys are a different breed. We basically are still cavemen that went to charm school. If you’re “guy friend” meets ya out for drinks at happy hour just know you actually are sitting across from “Thor” who would love to drag you by your hair back to his cave to do the prehistoric tango!
Some of you ladies may actually bring this blog to the attention of your man to question its validity. He’ll read it and fume inside because a member of his gender would DARE to reveal the truth but I can tell ya what he’ll say right now: “Honey, that may be how the REST of guys are but I don’t feel that way because YOU fulfill all my needs.” See. We know how to play the game.
