I’m considered a little boyish. Ari wrote on this subject yesterday, that she likes sports and meat instead of ribbons and whatever else girls are supposed to like. My boyishness is more about my personality than my interests. I have mostly male friends, which lends itself to seeing a different perspective on the world. I’ve had guy friends tell me that if they could only have one girl at their bachelor party (aside from the, uh, paid girls) it would be me. I’m drawn to singlehood in the same way that men supposedly are. And, most of all, I’m not very emotional. I’ve had girlfriends actually get mad at me for ‘not opening up’ when in fact, I’m all open, I just don’t feel whatever they want me to feel.
I don’t know exactly where I’m going with this. It was two things that got me started on this topic, the picture on Drudge of the man shaped pillow (which made me claustrophic just looking at it) and that Dawn Eden told me recently that I don’t write about personal stuff as much as I used to, which is probably the result of the election being a month away. I’ve been loving the personal stuff she’s been writing lately about wanting a relationship and waiting for that perfect man. I have to admit, it’s a little foreign to me. I can’t say I ever wanted to meet someone to have a relationship. Usually, I meet someone and fight against having a commitment only to lose that fight (I met Peter in August and it was December before I called him my boyfriend).
Anyway, I love reading the female insights that the blogosphere offers, it’s a good balance to my boy-infested life. I guess that’s my point.
