    Once Upon A Time.

    Once upon a time I lived in a small town, in a state that is thought by many to be nothing but farm land. The truth is, there are cities, buildings, cafes, and public transits. The farms all lie at the edges of towns. I lived on the side of the bridge that was "the city". He...

    He's the Best

    My Best Guy

    I have a guy that's my best friend. I can tell him anything, and he won't ever judge me for it or lecture me. He always just calmly gives his advice. I have great conversations with him and he's just a joy to be around.

    I Still Do!

    Lots of them, I have a few female friends but most of my close friends are male. About 12 or 13! literally! I love having the mix of the genders in my friendship group, you get a lot more perspective on a situation and I think its healthy to know and be close to both genders.

    From the gay, to the mutually attracted, to the absolute platonic. I love male friends. I ususally seem to have more male friends than female in my life, and I like that just fine. :)
