Okay... What about this one, then.
What if a guy starts telling you specific things he's looking for in a woman. And you're thinking, "I have that! I AM that!"
It seems a bit awkward to just up and say, "HEY! I have what you're looking for!" But you're kind of left wondering if you're just not even on his radar at all... and then you kind of wonder why...
Too old? Too cold (as in not "hot")? Too weird? Too clowny?
Who knows? *shrug*
Something inside me just kind of rejects the notion of screaming out "I... AM... THAT... HEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" -Larryboy
Girls are confusing?!?!?! Who said that?!?!? GUYS are REALLY confusing!
As for the "just friends" thing, I'm not sure about that one anymore at all. What does "just friends" mean? And what's so bad about being "just friends" really? Any relationship that is going to ever go anywhere needs to have a great friendship as its basis. *shrug* On the flipside, I would say that if a guy/girl feels like they need to have a "we're just friends" conversation, then usually the relationship "kiss of death" is involved (i.e. you can kiss the "relationship" aspect of the friendship goodbye). Almost every time a guy has decided to have a "we ARE just friends, aren't we?" conversation with me, it is followed soon thereafter by a profession of strong interest in the girl that he ends up marrying.
Are there certain comfort levels that throw a girl so far into a guy's comfort zone that she'll no longer hold an interest for a guy?
I've just kind of resigned myself to the fact that I make a great confidante. Within one month, I had three guys confide in me about their romantic interests. I was okay with that, but at the same time, I was like... Is there anyone out there who is confiding in some poor unfortunate girl about MEEEEE?!?!?! lol
Great topic, Chel!
