    In My Honest Opinion...

    My circle of friends consists of mostly males. They consider me one of them, a bro, which is not always as good as it sounds (My poor ears). I eat, drink, hang out, shop, chat, and many other things with my male friends and this does not mean that I am interested in more than a...

    † Maintaining Platonic Relationships †

    You and I  have heard the term platonic relationship a lot of times, but I was  hardly aware of the significance of the term besides the knowledge that it means non-sexual love. However, there is much more depth and thought to this "platonic love" concept than mere non...

    Worried About What People Think Of Me

    I'm afraid that people think I'm gay because I have more women friends than guy friends. I'm completely straight but just prefer hanging around women because I feel I can open up with them a lot easier. Maybe this is due to me not having a very open relationship with my dad?

    It Is Extremely Pathetic

    how uncannily easy it is to spot the perverts. The men and women who just HAVE to ruin platonic connections with their perversions. "You hugged him, you are a girl so you must want to kiss him" Oh puh-leeeeeeeeeze! Hugging is a natural, instinctive, agape gesture in the human...
