Sex & the Single Woman: Grand Gestures?

I am fortunate enough to have been on the receiving end of some fairly grand gestures of emotion. Sadly, no boy has ever stood outside my window John Cusack-style, but nevertheless, gestures have been made.

These include everything from offers of exotic trips to handwritten poems to surprise home-cooked meals. Yet these have all been platonic.

Yes, ladies, not one of these guys has ever been my boyfriend. I’ve never really dated any of them, to be honest. So why is it the guy friends who are doing this and not the guys who vie for my heart?

Who do the guy friends have a bigger sense of romance than the boyfriends?
