Sex & the Single Woman: The Flip Side

I often talk about my girl friends and how they get me through any hard times, but recently I’m discovering that I have some guy friends who are just as amazing.

A couple of weeks ago I had one of those truly sucky nights where you just want to devour every flavor of ice cream Ben and Jerry ever produced, but even the thought of doing that is depressing. Yes, one of those nights.

In spite of my loathing of all things male, one of my close guy friends sat with me, patting me on the back and in general being a pretty awesome human being. The past couple of months we’ve bonded over relationship problems, but it’s nice to know that he can stomach an angsty girl.

Even better than a genuinely comforting guy hug (yes, there can be something better) is knowing that he is sincere in caring about me. His advice is spot on, without being condescending. And despite all this, I have to admit I know I will never date him. And that’s cool.

What can I say, I’m a lucky girl.
