Today, as I do with many of my days off, I went shopping. But this time I went with one of my male friends who I work with. Drove there, shopped, drove back… except upon leaving the car park he told me that if anyone asked, I bumped into him in HMV and offered him a lift home…
Obviously I questioned this. His response? People at work will start talking and spread rumours about seeing us together, despite him already having a girlfriend of 3 years (who we also work with).
That’s right, I had a nice few couple of hours shopping with a friend and I can’t even tell anyone I was with him… just in case… WHAT THE HELL!?!
So a girl can’t be ‘just friends’ with a guy and vice versa!?! Not at least without it being questioned and interviewed like we’ve been at it behind some shopping centre bins! Why is it so hard for the human race to acknowledge that opposite sexes can indeed be friends without ANY sexual involvement?
I have many male friends in my life, mainly because I tend to get on with them better (can’t be doing with bitchy shit) but I wouldn’t dream of hooking up with them, I just don’t see them that way.
The world can be a confusing place…
Teeny loves and kisses
