So, to contrast two experiences I had this week….

I was talking after class with a girl that I often sit by or chat with in one of my precepts…. we talked about getting together to hang out and do lunch or something. In the middle of the conversation, when we were talking about where to eat, she threw the words ‘just as friends’ into the conversation. Seriously? What, was she thinking I was going to think it was a date? Seriously?

Conversely, I was hanging out in a coffee shop with some friends from church today, and one of the  girls went up to get a pop and offered to buy me one. She brought in back and said in jest, “You’re a cheap date”. It made me laugh, and appreciate my straight female friends who don’t think that, just because I am gay, that I want to date them. These friends are rare though, especially at Divinity School.
