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!

Update: Thank you all very much for the favorites! And I'm also happy to hear of others' similar stories!

I agree. I have as much guy friends as girl friends, but I hang out with one more often than the rest, along with my other girl friend. Sorry I have no story here XD

Agreed.Just Because We Have Friends that are Boys, doesn't Mean we Are ACTUALLY Boyfriends :XD: Once, My Friend Asked Me If I liked A guy From School Named Esteban.I Said No.I Mean, Just Because We Hang Out Or Talk To each Other It Doesn't Mean We Are Couples!! He Hasn't Asked Me Out and he NEVER Will Because He already has a Girlfriend.and Yes, I Hang out More with Boys.That Is Why My Friends That are Girly girls (Otherwise i Am A tomboy :XD:) Say That Me And The Boys Are Dating Or Are Like, Ya Know BOYFRIENDS.For Some Reason, My Friends Say That To Me Or the Boys But Me? I HAVE NEVER TOLD ANY OF MY FRIENDS IF THEY ARE COUPLES OR IF THEY ARE DATING.Sheesh, Hate When That Happens!! >:C  Btw, Using :D

i swear i was partners with this boy at school and my friend came up to him like "so you've found a new girlfriend huh?"
i wanted to slam her face in to the wall so hard oh my god
Tiktail Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2014  Professional Writer
That happens to me a lot, and it made me lost friends, because of misunderstands.

I am a girl, and the other girls get jealous and they think I will steal them the boy they love.

Please, I even told them that I don't want a couple! I live perfectly fine lonely!
anxiety-kitten Featured By Owner Edited Nov 16, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This is something that is still hard for me to accept when it comes to my BF he is one of those guys with more female friends than male.. and I still assume the worst although he has always been faithful eventhough he lives far away from me. He always insist he loves me and that there is nobody else in the picture. I guess it's harder for me since I am not very good at making friend of my own gender..(I'm a girl btw.)

pissed me off to no ends
Savingfadingstars Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This happened to me once, I talked to the guy for a few days, and BAM! Rumors everywhere. I'm actually dating the guy now, but it's been like a YEAR since the rumors started. Actually, when he asked me, I was only able to say yes cause the rumors died down.
DeMeNteD-WiNDMilLs Featured By Owner Edited Oct 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i hate when people do that. i have guy friends that i goof around with and tease, so people automatically think i "like" them because they are of the mind set that if one teases someone who is of the opposite sex then they like that person :X but what they don't understand is that i do that with ally my friends regardless of their gender/sex; its just how i show my affection towards my friends. :/
not to mention people can't seem to accept the fact that i am not interested in having a romantic relationship at the moment. 
FlareTheFireWolf Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2014  Student Artist
This is true.
LightningChaser2000 Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeh. One time it went so far that every time someone asked if me and my friend Kris were dating I would physically punch him in the stomach to prove otherwise.
Hawkheart29 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Forgot to mention my BFF thru out HS was a boy and everyone, even our inner circle friends, asked if we were a couple. Girls who were crushing on him would ask me if I was his girlfriend-no, we were (and still are) just friends......Which is ironic since we both wanted to be a couple but (he told me this himself after graduation) he had no idea how to proceed and since all I wasn't getting any response whenever I tried to flirt or drop hints, I came to the conclusion that he wasn't interested in a romantic relationship so I stopped and went back to being his BFF (which I didn't mind in the least).
Hawkheart29 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't think he was trying to hurt you, I think he liked you as a friend and the rest was hormones talking (I had a guy friend in HS too who wanted to be more, but he got over it and we stayed friends). When it comes to the male sex and the wonderful hormones of puberty, always give them the benefit of the doubt (the first time, after that they've been warned and any farther attempts to be more-than-friends with you can be dealt with however you see fit; whether that's simply telling him 'no' or kneeing him in the nuts-your choice). My older brother describes the urges brought on by hormones like this "Imagine you're hooked on a drug and nothing in the world can get it out of your system or extinguish the craving." Yeah, basically their own personal Hell (I'll take cramps and PMS over that any day).

SO TRUE! My best friend 4 years ago was a guy called Alex and he treated me like all me like my gal pals here do. Everyone's like "ooo, he's your boyfriend."

Cupcakequeen16 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
OMFG I can relate! There was a guy that I became close friends with and kids at school would be asking if we are dating which is so not true. It's been like that for my WHOLE freshman year. I just hope that rumor doesn't continue to next year.

Thank you for making this stamp!

100Cat Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2014
It gets annoying, doesn't it? One of my friends at school is a boy, and kids ask if we're dating. I give them the same response: "No, I'm asexual." Then they ask what that means.
courtneypoke123 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Super true. Last year, all of the girls in my classy were too...i don't know...girly, so I hung out with the guys. talked about pokemon, hunting fishing...i was happy. Then they all make boyfriend rumors. Seriously?

The mayority of my friend are GUYS. We go to the same class, we talk, chat and play games together, but they are NOT my boyfriends. Everyone asks me, and I just can say: "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.

ImmaEmmaKitteh Featured By Owner May 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
What if you made something like this for guys too? 

"I have friends who are girls too, that does not make them my GIRLFRIENDS"

Just an idea : )
LuckyNoble Featured By Owner May 23, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
finally a stamp were girls can speak their mind. when i hang out with a guy ppl ask me "Are you guys going out?" its such a stupid question to ask!

TriforceCat Featured By Owner May 18, 2014  Student General Artist
I did have a guy friend once (who I am friends with again). We talked about stuff like Video games etc. and then all of a sudden, my ex-best friend started saying that we were dating. It was so annoying, but it admit I do kind of have a crush on him now.
M00NL1T-M4SK Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I have 0 friends that are girls, and like 20 guy-friends! I hate it when people get guy-friends mixed up with boyfriends!

I know…
It really bothers me when this happens.
ficklepickle7 Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
A similar thing happened to me, but not the kissing part, mind you.  Early in elementry school I really didn't have many friends.  Then I met this guy, and we started hanging oit together on the playground and in the classroom.  Soon this super-mean kid started calling us "lovebirds" and rumors started going around that we were dating.  That burden has followed me to middle school, although there are less people who think that then before, and he went to a different school!  I know there are several people who STILL are gossiping about it behind my back.  So yeah, he didn't try to kiss me or anything, and we're still friends now.

He sniffed your hair?  I'm glad that my male friend didn't want to date me...
beestinqs Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ah, the familiar rumors. In fifth grade they followed me and my guy-friend everywhere. It wasn't until this year that I realised I had a massive crush on him, and the rumors were true, without anybody knowing. 

But still, thanks for making this stamp!
Sheena8 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Thank goodness someone made this stamp.

In school,I have some friends that are boys. But I just hate it when people ask me if we like each other. :stare:
Pin-eye Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Oh glob :| This is annoying when people do this to me -_- I've had many guys as friends, especially when I got older. I simple find it easier to make friends with them :shrug: Especially since most of them I made friends with like video games :D Now since I'm in college, things have dramatically changed. I can have guys as friends, and no one has ever asked if I was with him or with him, etc. (Kinda off subject ^^; ) > Not even bullying is a concern at my college. :P If I have a problem, and ask for help, the teacher's WILL step in and end the situation. Bullying happened once to me here (and to my friends), and never occurred again after my teacher actually helped us :\ Unlike all those years in Middle School, and High School, teacher's would never help me when I asked them for it. Literally one time a teacher sat there on her butt, and she saw what was happening, and did nothing! :(
