I had a late dinner and a bit to drink with Hazel and Locationgirl. I probably have a 50/50 ratio of male/female friends. For me, there's a clear line of demarcation between friends and lovers, potential or otherwise (of course that's exactly what No. 6 said to me and that turned out to be total crap).
Still, it's great being able to have feminine sounding boards. Consider the recent conversation between Casey and myself:
Her: You think your dating life is bad? On date three, a guy asked me to show up wearing a Halloween costume.
Me: No way! What'd you say?
Her: I said "F___ no!"
Me: Nice. Strong work there, Case.
Her: Yeah, and then just the other day he contacted me to ask if I had a Maid's...
Me: (interrupting) Wait, you answered?
Her: (pause) Yea, I guess I shouldn't have.
I've said it before, relationships are hard. You do what you can, when you can.
For me, life is...confusing. At least I'm not the only one who's confused.
