Boyfriends and Girlfriends
As most of you know, I like old sayings such as: "finer than a frog's hair." I find that conventional sayings are usually much more than merely conventional. There is often wisdom in them. In thinking about all this "DTR" stuff, I have been thinking about the now quaint labels of "boyfriend" and "girlfriend." May I suggest that these terms defined the relationship more profoundly than we might have realized? I think that there is something right about these terms. Boyfriends and girlfriends are indeed not ordinary friends, but they are essentially friends. That is the relationship. This is where I am headed. Sound the alarm, if you see a train wreck coming ahead!
