For the past year and a half I've been a guys gal. Constantly surrounded by people of the opposite sex and, for the most part, my life has been drama free. Many, not all, boys run from the first sign of drama including the boys in my circle.
As I get older, I find that drama is unnecessary and usually self-inflicted. The world has enough to worry about than your petty B.S. with so and so and why they don't want to be your friend. Odds are, you're in your mid-twenties and you should have enough maturity behind you to be social with people you don't want to be. Unless, that is, if you're a good friend and respectful of others decisions.
The number of girls in my life have dwindled and I keep the good few around for the long haul. The ones that are mature enough to actually ignore their cell phones when we're trying to have an in depth conversation and the kind that go emergency shoe shopping before an important event.
Sure boys are smelly, dirty, play video games, drink beer and are extremely hairy and burp in your face but they sure as hell leave the drama at the door. They could care less who I'm friends with and if I'm ever down, they just hand me a beer and tell me to get over it. Done and done.
That works for me.
Exact quote from my roomate after I mentioned a friend Facebook fiasco: "And you want to be around girls more, McKenna..."
I do love my girls. Not many boys would go shopping or get their nails done, but I have my Mom for that. But I'm finding that more and more girls just wanna have drama and less and less fun.
