I make a GREAT friend!!!

For those of you that don't know it - I have rejoined the dating world. I guess though to "rejoin" something you would have to be a member previously, right?

I mean...don't get me wrong - Robbie and I dated for 3 years before we got married, but before him, I didn't have a LOT of dating experience. I was the girl that always hung out with the guys, got all of their jokes, got to hear all of their complaints (about other girls), yet none of them dated me...because I was "one of the guys". I am... back in unfamiliar territory for me. I put myself out on a limb and started dating. I met this guy. We hit it off - we have the same sense of humor. It was truly strange because we would say the same things at the same time...all the time. Many of you would think - now that's fate! Not me. I, guess, because I was burnt before, I was being cautious. I didn't want to like him TOO much and get that high and then be dumped and be baffled. Yet, somehow... you can't avoid that high. I couldn't wait to hear from him daily - in fact, it drove me crazy until I did hear from him. But I refused to be one of those psycho chicks that stalks her new man, so I would try not to call TOO much -lol. The crazy thing about my relationship with him is that we told each other everything -I mean EVERYTHING! I even went as far as to tell him that if I was calling him TOO much, to please tell me and I would stop. (I got made fun of that from him for quite some time - but it didn't matter, that was our joke and I liked it.)

So, here we are today - the whole reason for this post...
I did it again... I have made a new friend.

Some of you are probably like, "What???!!" right now. So let me explain the not so black and white. I have fallen into my own personal trap of making a guy my friend, not my boyfriend, just my friend. I'm not trying to say this is a bad thing - just NOT where I thought I was heading - going back to the dating scene and all.

Sooo...Your next question is probably, "So do you really think you will be friends, now that you have dated?" And my response to that is "Oh, yes!" You see, maybe it is because I grew up with three brothers, or some other feeble excuse...but I know how to be an excellent friend to guys and this guy is no exception. We enjoy each others' company, we like to call and share our day with each other, we just aren't dating. The strange thing is ... I'm okay with it.


  1. What?!! How did I miss all this? I really must see you more often.

  2. So, did you get one of those "I just like you as a friend" speeches? Or did you give it? I'm glad you have a friend like this, though. Maybe he has a friend! ;)

  3. It was more of a mutual understanding.
    At this point, I'm afraid if he did, the friend would fall into my evil trappings as a friend too - lol. :)
