my theory on guy friends.

there are basically only a few types of guy friends a girl will ever have.

  • the ones whom you love, but don't love you.
  • the ones who love you, but you aren't interested in.
  • the ones whom you don't love and vice versa. i.e. the platonic friends.
  • unfortunately they may also be the ones who leave after they get attached, and stop calling or asking you out because their world now revolves around their girlfriends.
  • or it may work the other way and you stop contacting them because you think they're in love and don't need you around. which may or may not be true.
  • or they may be gay.
  • or they may be metrosexuals who just need a female opinion on what clothes to wear or what cologne to spray on.
  • or they may be psychopaths. (you can't be too sure.)
  • the ones whom you love and who love you. they may never tell you how they truly feel since you two are such good friends and friendship is such a fragile entity. even if they do, the love may or may not last.
  • the ones you're perpetually confused about.
  • the fuck buddies. (courtesy of shauna though i wouldn't consider this a category. i mean, fuck buddies?! )
  • the one whom you will eventually marry.

    any opinions? :)

    hello hello...
    hmmm...i think most of them are rather true. esp the point abt guys afraid to risk friendship of the one they love. i have this friend who once told me she's afraid she might avoid him(her good buddy who likes her) if he pour out the full content of his heart. thoughts on this?

    I guess most of the categories are true... though the relationship is never a constant. Relationships between opposite genders are usually in a flux, unless the age difference is very wide. Platonic friends often have their relationship made more complicated, and it is a characteristic of the human mind to incessantly consider "what ifs". It is precisely these "what ifs" that make us all want to hold on to the past in some way, for only with the benefit of hindsight can things appear to be somewhat more stable and predictable. Going back to the theory, what is love? Is it tangible?

    in response to daniel's comment. i guess it's a gamble not everyone is willing to take. but the outcome is always interesting, no matter whatever horrible consequences your friend might think his actions will cause. sometimes friendship does overwrite everything and the outcome isn't always so bad. sometimes.

    in response to anon's comment. you might be surprised to learn that i clear up most of my what-ifs instead of letting them remain at the back of my head. i suspect i'm too impulsive for my own good. yet there will always be some that persist... and yes remaining platonic friends can be trying unless all superfluous matters of the heart are eliminated. on love? i can't quite define it because i haven't found it yet. :)

    I would like to add that fuck buddies are also known as 'friend(s) with benefits'.
