Dating a guy who has no friends
This happens so often to you that you start expecting women to stop texting you back or disappear into oblivion, because no matter what you do differently it always ends the same way.That’s because the trickiest stage of getting a girlfriend is the transition from when you’re “sort of dating” her to actually “in a relationship”.
If you’re the sort of person who has a problem with this, I’m not the guy for you. Even though she had a boyfriend, she would lean in and touch his arm every time she laughed, she was flirting her pants off!I also have friends who don't share their different friend circles, for fear of social miscegenation.Also, everyone has had or been a "bad friend" at some point in their lives, right?I was the guy who would want to talk about meaningful things while watching football, only to be teased by my guy friends, who really wanted no part of it.“Of course, not all men buy into these prescriptions for male behavior, but these expectations do influence most men’s friendships at least a little bit.I was the guy who sent his male friends birthday cards well into their 20’s.

“Of all people in America, adult, white, heterosexual men have the fewest friends. They are supposed to be self-interested, competitive, non-emotional, strong (with no insecurities at all), and able to deal with their emotional problems without help.
Moreover, the friendships they have, if they’re with other men, provide less emotional support and involve lower levels of self-disclosure and trust than other types of friendships…When asked about what they desire from their friendships, men are just as likely as women to say that they want intimacy. Being a good friend, then, as well as needing a good friend, is the equivalent of being girly.” This is so true and it’s one of the ways in which I’ve always been different than most men.
I tap on his image and swipe through his other photos. The third, there they are, sipping cocktails on a palm tree swaying island. She expected it to be her as they had mutual friends.
His second photo is one of him and an incredibly attractive female. When he took her to his friend’s wedding as his plus one instead of me, I drew the line and ended it and what do you know, now they’re engaged! Are female best friends the loop hole of relationships?
What do they think about men who have female best friends? ‘The last guy I dated had a female bestie and it was down right strange.
