It goes double for women. The main reason is because I was gutted over a decade ago by one who I had planned to spend the rest of my life with. Yup, the Panther had his heart broken; via email, no less. The bitch couldn't even tell me to my face. In true karma sense, though, I saw her not too long ago. She's all fat and bloated now. When she walked away, I couldn't stop laughing for at least 5 minutes, thanking God that I dodged that bullet. People were wondering what I was laughing about. They probably thought I was crazy. This being New York, they probably thought I was normal.....ahem, but I digress.
Friend is not a word I use lightly; nor is it a word I toss around like a lot of people do. To me, it carries an enormous weight and responsibility. To me, a friend will not only kill for you but will help you bury the body and take the fall along with you and gladly do it. I think this comes from my military upbringing, where your very life depends on the trust you put in the people around you. Therefore, for me to call you a friend, especially a woman, is an extremely high honor; at least, from the way I see it.
I have tons of people I know but extremely few friends. I can count them on one hand, actually. I'm not including family in this. That all having been said, there is one people who I consider a friend. Perhaps quite shockingly, she's also a woman. This woman, first off, is fit. Of course, she'd have to be to be included into my inner circle. Second, she's smart; a lot smarter than even she lets on. She's not fooling me. I know this for a fact. Third, she's extremely creative. Her artwork is amazing. Every time I look at one of her works, I see something new. I'm also attracted to creative people; be it artists, musicians, or actresses.
