Where my boys at?

I have always had guy friends. Since early high school, my boy-buds were my best buds. A few of these friendships turned into romances, and many at some point involved a one-way crush on one side or the other, but in the end I have a handful of guys that I simply couldn't live without. The trouble is, none of them are nearby anymore. While I've got some of my life long and closest girlfriends in the immediate vicinity (one in my house - how lucky am I!?) I don't have any accessible* guy friends up north. I've taken to loosely stalking a really cool guy I met on the airplane about a month ago because I am just dying for the rapport I have always been able to build with a few special guys. These are the guys who I can trade sob stories with, who I've nursed through break ups and who have returned the favor tenfold. The guys who remind me that settling shouldn't be an option - that good men are out there, respectful men with good taste and the desire to truly romance the women they love. They've reminded me that I'm not half bad when I needed it, and kept me busy when my Friday nights were boyfriend and date-free. I wish I could quantify why these relationships are so special - all I know is that right now I really, really miss them.



*My high school ex is up here and I still consider him one of my closest friends but his own romance has made it hard to connect as he's afraid his girlfriend won't like the idea of us hanging out.

Peter - you would so be one of these guys if you lived near me. Heck - you already are and we've never even met! So, for the record, any time you need a gal to let you know it's "o.k." if you like porn, I'm your girl.

If that chick won't let you your buddy be friends with you, then your buddy is in a shitty relationship.

That is sucky.

Is it really that easy Dr. Noisewater?

Sometimes, it gets hard to find good, quality time for my girlfriend, my buds, my family, my congregation/cult, my cat, and myself...

Please just ease up and try to inquire a bit further before you judge a person(people) you don't know-

I'm sorry Ms. Indigo and I do miss you.

I really hope you find the airplane guy. I met a girl like that in New York in the subway one night. It was great yet brief and I wish to God I had another day in the city to take her up on the coffee she asked me to have with her!

Damn all of us guys spread out all over the place and the net eh? : ) And I'm with the Dr. She's an oppressor. Boooo on her.
