"How dare you say I don't have great consideration for friendship!  LOL and all that. I would think more that panties were in a twist in this situation with a good friend than with a casual friend.  After all a Good Friend should make…"

Eugene replied to David's discussion Should I talk to my (male) friend?
"Dave, I think you'll get a wide variety of opinions here, evident by the "more recent" conversations. I think these differences in opinions is largely due to how the men here consider friendship. If this were just a casual friend from…"

On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More
