I wish that I knew……..
….that it was ok to talk to boys – I had very little or some may even say next to NO interaction with them really until I was at University. I went to an all girls secondary school and sixth form/college which to be honest i loved and despite the fact that I had brothers, this lack of interaction with boys made me really naive and uncomfortable being around them. If I am being honest (which I always try to be) this didn’t serve me too well in my first relationship where I was cheated on the entire time….Yes, the entire time! Was I hurt? Yes. Of course. Could the hurt have been avoided? Yes, I believe so. In hindsight when I look back, there were certainly times I could have found out this ‘hurtful’ information a lot sooner if I was more aware of how guys can behave. Oh well. I guess you can’t cry over spilt milk….can you? I suppose my overall message here is that everything happens for a reason, BUT it is important to not limit off your friendships based on stereotypes/sex/race/sexuality/religion etc etc.
