Guy-Friends Stamp by Tri-Jean Guy-Friends Stamp by Tri-Jean
This is for the girls...

Don't you hate it when you have a friend, who is a guy, and people start making rumors saying that you're a couple and going out together? They think that your friend is your boyfriend when he really is just a friend. I've had that happen to me... Oh, how frustrating it had become...

I met this guy named Michael in Geography during my Freshman year, and we became friends. We'd help each other on the reading assignments and said hello to each other before class started. Everything seemed to go so smoothly my Freshman year.

But then things started to get a little crazy by Sophomore year. That year had to be my worst from High School. Michael and I had the same lunch hour, which made me feel pretty happy because then I wouldn't feel alone. We sat together and talked, laughing and having fun, as well as focusing on study guides. He also greeted me when I got to school to go to my Spanish class.

Then one day, people started asking me 'Ooooo, I've been seeing you around Michael. Is he your boyfriend? Are you two going out?'. Never did I expect to hear this from them. I was shocked when they asked me this, and it made me really upset. Seriously, can't a girl have friends who's a guy that is not my boyfriend? I wish people wouldn't jump to conclusions. The more I was asked this by surrounding people in my other classes, the more I got so annoyed I snapped, and I don't usually show my anger at school. I'm actually a very nice, silent, shy person...

What made my year even worse was that the rumors convinced Michael to believe that we were actually together as a couple. He started acting very odd around me, wrapping his arm around my waist, leaning over me to sniff my hair. I was terribly frightened. And the day after Valentine's day, he had given me a rose [I love roses...] but then he kissed me on the forehead without even asking me, and I squealed and lunged for Health class, and he tried to stop me, snatching my wrist and trying to pull me back. This had gone too far... I told him that we were only friends. I was comfortable enough to have him as a friend... And yet, after a few weeks or a month, he'd ask me if I've changed my mind and would beg for me to accept him as a boyfriend. Peer pressure peer pressure... I still wanted him as a friend :( So... eventually things settled down. We remained as friends.

Still... I hate it when people assume that a friend of mine [male] and I are dating when we are most certainly not. We can have friends of the opposite sex too!

Yeah, I have this friend at school, and people keep asking if we're going out, or saying that we'd be perfect for each other. Well, we're good friends, we have a similar interest in drawing, but we wouldn't even go near that side of friendship. EVER.
