BFs


On the last episode of Grey’s two best friends did the deed. The little affair is complicated by the fact that one of the BFs recently got married and had come to the friend to get ‘advice.’ Well the advice came with a bottle of tequila and some sensual compassion.

I am a big advocate for guy/girl friendships. I have many strictly plutonic friendships with men. On the flip side I also have a few ‘friends’ who are obviously attracted to me. You know the kind: as soon as they have one too many their hands start to wander. Or they never have their girlfriends and you around at the same time….fishy buggers.

I’ve had the hot best friend. He didn’t start out hot. Growing up in Dubai he was the token nerd of the group. He was known for his countless hours spent on the computer and at the time he was the slowest runner of the boys and I was the fastest of the girls. Many a time I out ran him. This was important when I was growing up…

Then we moved to Canada. And five years later he was hot. Muscular, gorgeous hair, guitar playing, painter like Van Gough hot, and best of all we had ever thing under the sun in common…. Hot. After a few brief encounters, we became ‘BFs’….the kind of friends that would talk at least five times a day, fall asleep on the phone together and spend all weekend listening to jazz, watching artsy films, talking about the people we were dating, only to end up exchanging sweet kisses late at night.

BF’s are hot. They know all about you. They are like your favorite old ratty shirt. You tend to have more in common with BFs than someone you lust for right of the bat. You have the same friends. And his mother always loves you…(she saw you grow up from a wee little girl.)

Yet there comes a time in BF history where you either make the leap or one of you finds someone else who sticks. And you still have the late night rendezvous…but eventually you both have to be the bigger person and let it go….

The point….If you have a hot BF…go ahead and enjoy them…. Or you might find yourself like in a situation like poor George and Izzie, married and making a huge mistake……

Are there any BFs you missed out on?

Yeah, I had some of those, different people at different times in my life. After the last one screwed me over, I am wondering if its worth the effort to have another... :-))

Jdid said...

yep but it was a one way attraction

the married person on greys seems to have made a fundamental mistake though. if you can dont put yourself in situations that can lead to trouble

Cranky, if your site allowed anonymous comment posting, I would have told you a short story. I don't want to if my name goes on it though...

I am one of those strange girls who doesn`t have any male friends. at. all.

Marika said...

Not on the same level as that! I have a few friends who are guys but they're either a) gay or b) strangely a-sexual to me.

Who made the leap between you and your BF?

Crankyputz said...

MB: It does allow you to post Annon, POST ANNON...I await.

GC: You can have some of mine, especially the touchy feely ones...I Insist.

Marika: There was no leap, he met a girl, who he is still with, and I ponder from afar

I'm mad as hell that George is workin his way through all the women on the show (he's seen Callie's,Izzy's, Meredith's and Dr. Bailey's vaginas) while acting all wounded and puppy dog sad about it. Booo. BF my ass. He's a pussy and a whiner and a whiner about pussy (the worst kind).

As for me I tried the BF thang and it ruined a great friendship. I thought we were having a one off but he thought it was the beginning of something (without telling me - cuz I woulda been down but I didn't wanna jump to conclusions and get played) and in the end it became awkward and we drifted apart. I still miss my former BF :-(

Fore warned is forearmed when it coes to dippin' in the BF pool!

Inciquay: heheh George getting the most action on the show. Frankly im bored of Derek and Merdith, just let them be happy for more than three shows straight, jeez.

Thanks for sharing the story, i agree, losing a BF is a bitter pill to swallo....
