Day 27: When Harry Met Sally

When Harry Met Sally w/ Meg Ryan & Billy Crystal

When did co-ed friendships seem so complicated? Don’t we pick our friends based on interests and personality anyways?  It’s kind of like dating, right? Except you choose to not pursue that route (well, at least one of you clarifies that, I hope). For the most part, I’m not exactly the complete opposite of my friends. We get along just fine. Doesn’t shared interest naturally foster a sense of attraction regardless? Then adding the word “friendship” just acts as a neutralizer so one can be completely comfortable in every sense of the word – emotionally, physically and mentally. That comfort allows for openness and being able to share things you would otherwise hold back in a dating environment. We’re really not ourselves when we begin to date, we hold back our neurotic tendencies and behavior. No sees crazy till at least three months in. With friends, they see it everyday. I know my all of my friends know the kind of crazy I pull. Boys don’t, friends do. Simple. Anyways, will friendships always be platonic? Probably not. Can they be? Probably. I think like most relationships, some co-ed friendships can be in the gray area. But those relationships that stem from friendships are often long-lasting, at least from what I’ve seen/heard. So it can’t be too bad that’s there’s gray areas. OR there’s always the possibility of really making things complicated and try to explain the whole friends with benefits scenario. Let’s not and say we did? Agreed? Agreed.

“Doesn’t matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story. “
