|Why do we, in an attempt to prevent unwanted romantic attentions, push away potentially good friends? I don't present myself as an example to follow, because I've been known to do the same thing. However, I can point to the relationship I have with Rachel. She knows that I could be interested in her as more than just a friend. But she also knows that I would never do anything to intentionally compromise that friendship we do have.
I guess that one reason why I don't think that girls should worry about me being potentially interested in them is because the things that I look for in my friends are often (if not always?) the same things that I look for in potential girlfriends. If anything, I probably tend to be more picky about my friends. Friends have to have a good personality, because they can't make up for it by being fun to cuddle with.
I won't lie. I really would like to have a girlfriend- someone who I can give a hug whenever I'm sad and lonely (which is altogether too often), someone that I can count on being with more days than not. But I don't. So instead I try to make my friends fill a little bit of that vast emptiness.
To all the cute girls out there: Will you go out with me? No? Then will you please be my friend?
