I’m going to put it out there into the universe. I just want to be friends.
There’s nothing like having a platonic male friend to bounce ideas off, give you a response driven by logic rather than emotion, or just be there to take out the trash.
Right now, while I’m healing, I don’t wanna go out on dates with faceless men who will mean absolutely nothing to me once I’m done eating or watching a movie or walking in the park… I just want a friend.
A friend who won’t judge me for not cleaning up my room but will remind me that I should probably wash my clothes… A friend who won’t ask me if I’m going to perm my hair…
One who will spend the day thrifting with me and watch ESPN repetitively so I can see KG’s interview again and again and again.
Just a friend who will treat me like the woman I am; because I’m not one of the guys.
Someone who’s after my best interest but not looking to fall in love with me.
Sure, I know the type who just wants to “be friends” but attempts a kiss at the end of a “hang out”… No, I don’t want one of those. We don’t even have to hug. A dap will suffice. But I prefer a fist bump.
Am I too late? I mean, seriously, do people my age (almost 30) still form new, platonic relationships?
Do guys just want to be friends or is everyone looking to wife (or in a woman’s case, hub) someone up?
Yeah, so, a relationship is not in the forefront of my mind, but I’d like a true blue friend…. One who has a bit in common with me but doesn’t secretly love me… I’ll speak on this more soon… I’m sure.
I’m actually asking to put myself in the dreaded friend zone… (after all that complaining in the past, I actually WANT to be JUST a friend?)
