Guy-Friends Stamp by Tri-Jean Guy-Friends Stamp by Tri-Jean
For the guys... here you go =D ---> Girl-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!

That's a really great stamp! :D Very well said, I agree with that! ;)

This.
This is so true.
I have a friend that's a guy, and people have teased us bout us being a couple.
Me and him have the same reaction:
NOPE

And the stupidest part is that we're in 8th grade

I have a best friend who is a guy and last year everything went downhill for us.

First we were accused of dating. "Oh, but you'd be so cute together." and "You two should bang!"

Then the school country dancing came up and, naturally because we're best friends, we chose to partner with each other and shit went down.

Yes! Thank you. I've been the subject of this kind of rumor with at least 5 guys (I don't even like one of them)! It's so annoying, just because I breathe the same oxygen with them and share common interests does not mean I'm dating them! Of course, my friend tried explaining that to some people who were prying him about this as of recently... he even told them to ask me, but they refuse to speak to me. People just love to speculate, huh?

Anyway, enough ranting. I'm gonna go post this on my profile right now.

Agreed so much.

When I was in first grade I had this crush on a guy, and everytime there was the usual break, I used to chase him until it was over.
Now I obviously stopped doing that and we're good friends, but people keep calling us "lovebirds" and it's really frustrating.

Ugh, this is a huge problem for me too. I'm in high school and one of my closest friends is a guy! We've been friends since our very first day of Freshman year! And people just keep assuming that we are 'dating and sooooooooo in love' just because I hang out with him all the time. He's my friend! NOT my boyfriend! There's a difference! We don't kiss, we don't have those sort of feelings for each other. Yeah, we hug every once in a while, but I mean, c'mon people, we are just best friends....not boyfriend and girlfriend.......it really sickens me....drives me nuts.

I have this friend, and we sometimes walk to class together. Then the rumors started that we were dating. The bad part is that I have a slight crush on him which makes it worse! The rumors have died down tho. If the rumors ever start again (and I bet they will) I really wish I could stick this stamp on my forehead

Ugh I hate that so much, I have this classmate/friend that I get along with very well. if I'm just laughing at a joke he told or seen walking together people think we love each other. Just……ugh (¬_¬)ノ
He's just a really good friend
Then people make rumors/fun of me for that
Now I'm always aware of the people I am friends with/ hang out with
And mostly quiet …

I once got accused of cheating on one of my guy friends because I was hanging out with another friend at school [I don't even have a boyfriend!]
That's probably the reason I don't even care about going out with guys anymore-the guys at my school are either my friends, or extremely annoying popular guys. :XD:

I have some male friends; most are idiots but I still love them.
I'm a nonbinary lesbian, which while is an odd topic to bring up at this time plays an important role in my life in school. Students guess that whenever I hang out with a boy I'm dating him, when almost half of the boys I hang out with don't even like me.
However, I do remember some fuckboy com across me while I was talking to this girl (he knows I'm gay) named Paris and he said to her "awe, Paris, you found a new girlfriend?" and I really wanted to break a chair over the back of his thick skull.

I have several male friends, and people always assume that one of them is my boyfriend. :iconfacepalmplz: By that logic, I'm lesbian for all my female friends, right? And if two guys are friends, they must be gay? This logic is flawed. -_- I even saw one person on the internet say "When a boy's best friend is a girl, they end up falling in love" as if it was a fact. It sickens me.

Yeah, that's so annoying. Quite recently I met a boy at an event which lasted for the weekend. He is two years younger than me but we're attending the same school yet. We got along very well and the next week I happened to see him at school during a school break and went to talk with him. Well, wasn't it just that a friend of mine assumed something else than what it was... Ah, darn, I so wanted to punch her. Or at least show some very inapproriate hand signs...
