    Spent the night last night at the in-laws. I just couldn't face an empty house again. Before I went to sleep, my MIL blessed me, in the Mexican RC tradition. How much water it holds with the church, I don't give a flying fuck in a high wind. It made her feel better and, even though I'm not RC or even religious, it made me feel better that she cared enough to do it.

I'm not a round peg for the round hole.
    In my more depressive moments, I do wonder what it'd be like to have more friends, to be closer to "Normal." I wonder how much of myself I'd hafta swallow to get close. Reality always kicks in, but I still fantasize about not being the odd one out, especially when Geek's not in town.
    I'm also an odd one out most of the time. I never feel as if I fit in. I always feel oddly abnormal compared to most people. It always starts out well, but I guess I turn people off b/c I don't keep friends for long - they soon just become acquaintances. The only person I still have regular contact with is my husband. I can't even tell you the last time I talked to a friend on the phone. If my phone rings, I can 'bout guarantee it's my husband.

    I feel your pain. No close girlfriends makes for a lonely life, even if you do have a husband and kids to share it with.

    This is most definitely how I am. The funny thing is that I've always been considered to be "one of the guys". The few people that I confide in #1 aren't female #2 aren't my spouse and #3 aren't anyone in my family. I've found about one or 2 male friends that I can trust and that's how its been for me.

    I'm definitely one of the guys. Most chicks are just irritating to me. Unfortunately, most guys see my "friendliness" as "flirting, she wants to cheat on her husband." I love my Guys, but they can rarely hang out.

    That is because they are idiots. I mean, I like flirting (even if imagined) as much as the next dude, but who the frack thinks anyone wants to cheat on their spouse especially if their spouse is also a friend? WTF guys, seriously, W.T.F.?
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Oh, the Guys know I'm not actively hitting on them. It's any new friends I try to get to hang out, especially if they haven't met Geek yet.

    I think most guys believe we are flirting. Heck, one of my guys tells me I have a fear of women. I don't have a fear of women, I just don't like how they can be catty and talk about everyone like they don't know it. I have realized, that the few women I call "friends" most of them are just like me. I still wouldn't make an effort to call them up, but I still consider them friends none the less.

    Nk I hope your stress level goes down soon and you get your Geek back.

    I don't have many friends either. I have colleagues and theatre aquaintances, but good friends are hard to come by. I still keep in touch with my BFs from home and college, but they both live 3-5 hrs from me.

    I get along well with men too, but now I have to be careful. My Cheerful Personality and Primal Hotness are a lethal combo. Freaking Primal! :P

    Crap. I really misread this situation.
