Growing up, I only had the pleasure of hanging out with straight guys. Nothing sort of incestuous relationships there. I was merely a 'buddy' to them and they were the same to me. The best friends I've had are straight men and I still hang out with a couple of them (well, a lot of them). Somehow, they keep me grounded and they show me how great I can be (dedicated dad friends), and how silly I can be as well (still single guys with Peter Pan syndrome). But, all in all - they create a balance in me. I will never trade my friendships with them. Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
