Do you complain ab all your close friends? Maybe you do a poor job of picking the ppl with whom you want to be close. Perhaps you've just poorly represented yourself here. Either way being "close friends" w the opposite sex requires a level of sensitivity you seem to lack.

I only quoted this part since that's what I'm addressing but taking the rest of the post into account essentially what you're saying is "I can have a female friend, but if we aren't having sex there's no way I'm offering any sort of emotional support for her personal problems."



I can't help but feel that's a bit of a disgusting viewpoint to take.

The problem I do have with a lot of my female friends is that they don't deal with issues as logically as guys do. They think things over, get worked up, see if things change in time where ordinarily a guy would be like 'I have a problem, let's sort this'. As a result, I've given out advice countless times to female friends only to watch them ignore it and allow things to get worse. Then, when they do break up I give them the whole 'well, you had problems a lot it's for the best' talk, and they're back together again a week later.

I've had this with virtually every girl I've been friends with. Time and time again. Guys tend to be more direct when there is a problem, or simply ignore it.

So there are some friends I simply don't engage with in terms of relationship advice. They can do what they want, because I've tried to help them only to be ignored. Why ask for advice if you're just going to ignore it? Meh.



Anyway, I like a couple of girls at the moment who are both single. One of them has been my friend for a long time and I was going to ask her on a date a while ago but she got a boyfriend. She's single now though, but I'm waiting to give her some time before I ask her out. She has better taste in music than mos of my male friends (She likes Meshuggah and pretty much every band I like) so she's wife material. The other girl I like I've known for less time, but she's equally hot and has great taste in music. Need to hang out more to know whether there's a chance though. I'm also seeing another girl next week, but in a casual friends with benefits sense. We both need it.

Indeed and often when you offer a solution too soon they view it [sometimes] as you belittling their situation rather than extending a helping hand. Realizing/accepting these things make for smoother interactions.

Learning to pick your battles--as you clearly have--is also a good idea.

This is the exact thing i am talking about. Which actually makes me laugh that Konfyouzd agreed with you on it but he still continues to argue with me. Some people argue for the sake of argument and i appreciate that. Rock on Konfyouzd

It's just infuriating, and since it's the only part of the dream I remember, it was really depressing waking up; nothing more than that. It's been a little over a year since we were "together" and I haven't seen her in four months as well, so I don't care. I'm moving 3,000 miles to a new school, city, state and I'll be damned if I'm gonna think about her.

Just got back from the date.

Holy ....ing ..... Cannot stop smiling.
Have not been this happy in a while. This girl is amazing. No lapse in conversation, no mishaps, no nothing. Best date I've ever been on, period.

And I played it right- didn't even kiss her yet. Seeing her next weekend.

No my point was that you came across like a raging douchebag about it. We all know that it happens we just don't all ....ing cry about it like little boys. No one is arguing with you. Just pointing out that you need to grow up a little bit.

After having numerous girlfriends and having been married and subsequently divorced, I have found that when women complain, they aren't looking for advice or a solution. They are looking for sympathy. Nod and agree, and you'll be fine.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the ladies too, but I hate head games. At least with guys, the sky is still blue and the earth still flat. A chick will throw .... at you just BECAUSE the sky is blue, yet insist it isn't.

Awesome thing about dating another bi guy is that we don't consider sleeping with women to be cheating, so we have that option.

Seriously though, most of my best friends are female. Granted, I get along with girls who have more masculine qualities personality wise, but in general I find women more interesting to talk to particularly on emotional matters. I have a handful of girls I couldn't live without, but I have probably one male friend that I'd tell anything to. And my female friends definitely don't treat me like a woman, I don't pull any punches regarding my gender around them, particularly if they're single. If a girl can be friends with a sexually frustrated idiot like me, then she's definitely someone worth keeping around.

Of course I'd love relationships with some of them; if you're going to be best friends with someone that's a key part of what you want in a relationship and it doesn't help my girl friends are hot as ..... But I know where I stand in it because I am honest about my feelings, and they're good people so we have an understanding.
you can pretty much put me into that old school category as well though

the woman that i knew who were friends to me always tried to be more than friends the longer i was with them, so i just assumed woman were interested in male friends hoping it would lead to something or because there was some sort of attraction going on. the thing is, is that i wasn't really interested in the same way, and i am not the kind of guy to just get an easy lay so i started to stay away from them.

the end result was they thought i was a jerk for pushing them away(though i am sure i would look like an even bigger jerk for leading them on, right? cant win with woman). right now? i don't really hang with anyone other than my brother and sister, who are my best friends to be honest... and my wife.
but i love her to death. plus, i feel it is a sign of respect to not befriend
another woman when i am married.

Just broke up with the lady on Monday... It was a mutual thing with us, as we pretty much both realized it wasn't going to work and brought it up at the exact same time. She's got a lot of serious .... going on in her life right now, so she's stressed as hell, and was a bit of a bitch through the last few weeks. She acknowledges that fact though, which I really appreciate. I've got school and final exams I need to focus on, which is tough to do when things aren't going well with the girl I love, so... It was logical for both of us to step back for a while. We ended things on good terms, and we're going to try to keep our relationship a positive one for now. She's going to come hang out with me at the tattoo shop on Friday while I get some work done, so we'll see how this "friends" thing works. Whether or not we are cut out to be just friends remains to be seen, as there was never a point at which we were only friends - we hit it off immediately and things went really fast from there, but we've decided that once our lives (mostly hers) make a little more sense, we'd like to try again, however it still hurts. Especially when I sign into facebook and have her gorgeous face pop up first thing on my news feed, showing off her sexy new haircut

This great blue world of ours
seems a house of leaves
