I have a platonic friendship with a mature man. I have for 14 years now and we are extemely happy that we have one another. He's given me something even my girlfriends couldn't give me. Insight into how some men think as I have given him my opinions into how some women think. We can talk about anything and I am fortunate that we have many common interests and I think that has been the glue that has held this friendship together along with trust. We also have had many intimate moments together without it having to be sexually related. There's something really valuable to know what that feels like. I feel truly fortunate for this friendship.
