By Chaz Hubbard "You're like a brother to me." It's a phrase that's broken a lot of hearts, and if you've ever had it said to you, more than likely,...
Being a boyfriend girl is astronomically different from being a girl who just so happens to have a boyfriend. Instead of walking around feeling unfailingly awesome about being in a relationship, I spend a lot of time brooding over why I can't seem to exist outside one
I've been living with my boyfriend for a little over a year now, and although I love the fact that he gets me bottles of water from the fridge when I'm glued to the couch and plugs in my phone every night before bed (he's whipped -- it's fine), there are a couple things that make me miss living with girl friends.
Though I have an enviable relationship with my father (for a gay man) and hang out with him and his wife occasionally at their home in New Jersey, I was taken aback by the randomness of his request. We don't often go to exclusive nightlife events together.
Don't date a boy who doesn't travel. He's trapped in the safety of his routine habits. He doesn't like to try new restaurants or order something he doesn't know he already likes on the menu. He shuts down when you try to mix things up.
I'm sure that my HIV-positive friends have some down days like everybody else. But what I see in them is a passionate push to move forward and get past the bad stuff. There's a courage, an optimism, and a strength, oddly coupled with a sweet vulnerability that, quite frankly, I find attractive.
Sometimes I want to crawl into bed and never get out. I analyze each part of me, wondering what didn't fit into a part of him, how it could fit into a part of anyone else.

One thing that we've found that helps pass the time until you're allowed to leave? Casting our favorite TV characters in the most outlandish roles and seeing what happens.
"We actually broke up." This is the inevitable response you will have to give for weeks, months, possibly even years after you and your significant other part ways.
You're seeing a new guy and things are going swimmingly, except his end of conversations recently have included quite a lot about 'her' and not so much about you. You can't shake the feeling that he might not be over his previous romance
He's not my boyfriend, but Fred loves to cuddle -- everywhere. He's not my boyfriend, but Fred couldn't care less whether I gained a few pounds. He's not my boyfriend, but Fred would never cheat. He's not my boyfriend, but Fred never tries to control the remote.
Pick up any book, read any magazine, or watch any movie targeted toward single women, and you'll pick up a handful of tips on places to find a potential boyfriend: at sports bars, in the frozen food aisle, at closing time at the Laundromat. But they always overlook the man that could be right underneath you: the guy you accidentally brought home last weekend after a makeout session at the bar.
