Gay Men Make The Best Boyfriends

February 17, 2008

I’m sure you have heard of the phrase, ‘All good men are either married, attached or gay.’ And following that, all the loveless women would sigh in resignation and wonder when The One will come by and sweep them off their feet. I couldn’t help but agree to the all-too-familiar statement. By attached, I don’t simply mean attached to a girl (and you will almost always find her unworthy of the man), but to their mother, their pet, their immaturity and their PSP, or all of the above.

Where are you going to find that good man you have been looking for? The wait is over, for you have neglected to realize that besides fraternizing with the married men (a big no-no) or literally banging your head against the wall trying to connect with the already attached, there’s still an amazing but largely neglected category. The gay men.

They are the best friend you never had and the sister you wish you had. They are the sensitive boyfriend who buys you flowers, the fashion-oriented shopping buddy who dresses better than you some days (and boy, you hate it), the brutally honest mate who isn’t afraid to tell you that the guy you are crushing on is ‘not that into you’, all rolled into one. Sometimes, if he is nice and you are desperate enough, he will even pretend to be your boyfriend for a day, or a stand-in date for an event which requires serious arm-candy.

Once you got all that figured out, it is very easy to fall in and out of love with them. And when you do get a boyfriend, one who irks you day and night and forgets you are a girl sometimes, he will hate your gay best friend, for all the reasons that you love him.

    I’m sorry to say it, but I think you’re completely wrong. Gay men couldn’t possibly be the best boyfriends, simply because they don’t fit the job description.

    So maybe straight men aren’t as sensitive, or interested in the latest fragrance to hit the market, but so what. I believe that everything and everyone serves a purpose in this world. Stilletos may be great for a night on the town, but they just won’t cut it if you’re looking to go hiking. Similarly, if you’re looking for a man and life partner, then get a straight man and everything that comes with him. Otherwise, if you’re looking for a shopping partner, get a girlfriend or gay friend to accompany you. And before you ask, no you can’t have the best of both worlds. That’s just the way it is.

    As for not being able to find men that are not attached: why would want a man that’s not attached? Look at it this way: if someone isn’t attached to anything, it simply means that the person has nothing to be passionate about. Is that really what you want, a dispassionate man that doesn’t have a life?

    I’m sorry for the criticism, but I really did intend for it to be constructive 🙂

    By best, it means a man with the most qualities that fit the what-makes-a-perfect-man checklist, and yes, I have to agree they lack the fundamental, most important quality, that is, to have a romantic relationship with a woman.

    And thanks for the comment. It also highlights that straight and gay men can never be the same…and that there is never a perfect man to begin with.

    🙂 Exactly, keep that in mind that no one is perfect and so you’ll never be able to complete that check-list for any man. But maybe that’s not so bad.

    “Where are you going to find that good man you have been looking for?”
    Hmmm. Good question. My advice is that people should seek help when they cant do it themselves. In your case, why not ask your parents to help you? I know thatsn’t romantic. Oh! well! Better than nothing!
