I'm a healthy, reasonably fit, ok looking, heterosexual man. Most of my close friends are women. Most of them have never been my lovers. Is that really so unusual? Can men and women be close friends without having sex?
Oh sure, they said or implied. A 'blog'. Wink wink.
And you visit each other and just hang out? Wine, music, photography, laughter
and that's all? No, uhh, you know?
You mean there's never been any attraction? I didn't say that. But we
decided early on that this would be a platonic friendship. We don't have sex,
we don't make out, we don't hold hands walking down the street. We've never
done any of that. We do have a 'say anything' friendship; we've helped each
other through various difficult times in the seven years we've known each other
and we are both in great emotional places in our lives right now, in large part
because of the mutual support of our friendship.
Everyone should be so lucky to have friendships like ours. Just friends.
Really. Meant to be.
