The other day I discovered my friend Sarah's blog. She's been added to my list of daily blogs I read. She's a great writer and she's stinkin' funny. I know...I say that about everyone. But to prove her wit, I'm stealing her post from yesterday. Is that ok? Is there some blog law I'm breaking by doing this? Surely not.
Your Friend Who Is A Boy Is Not Your Boyfriend
I don't think I have a single female friend in my life who hasn't had a visit from the Maybe Man. Sometimes he lasts a few months, sometimes he stays for years. But no matter the length of his stay, I've come to view the Maybe Man as a rite of passage for today's woman.
Now who is this Maybe Man, you ask? Actually, I think 90% of you know exactly who is he is. But for you other 10% (you lucky, lucky 10%), I'll explain. The Maybe Man is that guy in your life who always seems to be dancing along that friendship/something more line but can never quite decide where he wants to land. Some days you're convinced he's more than a friend, some days you aren't. Sometimes he acts like a jealous boyfriend, sometimes he could care less if you are still on the planet. He's the guy in your life about whom you are never sure how you feel because you're too busy trying to figure out how he feels about you.
The problem with Maybe Men is that they are almost always good guys at heart (at least today I think they are, tomorrow I just might think they are Satan's toadies) who just can't seem to get their act together when it comes to one woman: you.
And the absolute worst part about it is that because nothing is ever said directly (really, what would you say? “I know you must like me because you've called me every night this week!), so you are never quite sure if it was all in your head.
