“The Big D”…When it comes to my friends, “D” could be abbreviated for so many things: Dallas, dating, designers, dogs, (car) dealerships, dilemmas, and (perceived) douche bags…the list goes on. But in my mind, it stands for diversity. Anyone can relate to one of our friends. Anyone can look at our lives and see themselves in one of us. We all have ups. We all have downs. And when it comes to our romantic perils, we have suffered the good, the bad, and the ugly.
This group is no exception to dating dilemmas. Tara, who is my female voice of reason, is a genuine catch, and one to be had. I am thrilled to see her giving herself some time and committing to being single. Drew has come into his sexuality, and I hope he can finally find a man who will let his true colors show. Glenn has escaped a four year relationship, and should enjoy being single. But then there’s Matty, who is my best friend. The Matt everyone sees is different than the Matt I see. The Matt I know is caring and is like a big brother to me. He listens and offers up advice. But most importantly, he loves me unconditionally, even when he doesn’t understand me.
But let’s cut to the chase…Matt and are just friends. And any female who has had a male BFF can relate to my frustration with him. The blondes may come and go, but I am there day after day. I’ve seen more blondes in Matt’s life than Hugh Hefner has seen in a lifetime. And although the boy says he isn’t a player, he certainly knows how to “wow” the women.
