So grand, it will blow your minds.
I have managed...
wait for it...
to discover The 8th Wonder of the World.
Don't know what the first 7 are? Read. Learn. Enjoy.
THE 8TH WONDER OF THE WORLD.
Are you ready to have your mind blown by this awesomeness?
i mean it is possible your brain will be turned to mush after reading this.
If it does I do not want you to sue me and say I didn't give you fair warning.
I'm giving you loads of warning right here.
Make sure you prepare yourself NOW with whatever you can, be it booze, valium, punching bag, twinkies, etc..
Alright. I've warned you. Given sound (hah) advice on what to do and told you not to sue me. I think I've covered my bases thoroughly enough..
So I guess I'll stop beating around the bush and just come out and say it.
The 8th Wonder of the World is...
Guys & Girls CAN be best friends.
Not possible you say?
Well go bury your face in a pile of something stinky or prickly because you are wrong and that is what I feel should happen to people who are wrong. Then they are stinking pricks! hah!.. ahem.. not the point.
One of my best friends is a guy.
*holy shit, is she serious?*
[why yes, yes i am]
No one, but my boyfriend and a select few others, believes that we aren't dating or that something isn't going on between us.
Clearly, everyone is under the impression that mixed gender relationships cannot exist in the world. Just because you are a douche that can't hold down such a relationship without thinking with your downstairs head doesn't mean they don't happen.
I guess you now understand that it is, of course, mostly guys that believe this kind of thing isn't possible.
Our friends we have known for years refuse to believe it no matter how we explain it.
I mean, we have said no, we aren't dating or hooking up 1,234,524,546,312,967,856,482 times and we aren't lying.
We are best friends. Duh.
We talk about life.
We bitch about everything.
Joke about everything else.
We talk with our version of Asian accents.
Listen to music.
Usually over coffee.
It isn't anything different than what we do as a group. We just don't really care for certain people all the time and therefore choose to discuss these topics on a regular basis without the other fools.
Well, that clearly means we are dating/getting it on or whatever they think is happening.
Its not. It will never happen.
End of story.
I do realize that this isn't always the case when it comes to this phenomenon.
Some of these relationships do turn into something more and I say good for them!!
But, that is not what is happening here.
Did you know there are people out there that don't like me because they think we are lying about our friendship?
It's getting ridiculous.
So ladies & (if you are out there) gents, it is possible for a guy and a girl to be JUST friends and nothing more.
I know. Your mind is blown.
Let me know if you need help finding all the pieces!
**a good portion of this post is sarcastic though it may come across differently in writing. Please note that I am aware that people already know about this phenomenon, I'm just super fed up with getting bombarded with all these stupid questions all the time. Yes, that was my rant.
