I took a "sick" day from work yesterday. Solicitor and I just couldn't be bothered to get out of bed. Things are a lot more relaxed between us now. I think we really broke a barrier with our deep conversation last week.
On Saturday we went out for dinner with Bimbo and Pierce. Although we booked a table at a nice Thai restaurant we ended up going to pizza express. (Thai food makes Bimbo nauseous). We had a good night. Solicitor and Pierce got on really well together. I always think its nice when friends get along with the person you're seeing.
On our drive back to Solicitors after dinner we had a conversation about friends. I told Solicitor that I have more male friends than female friends.
Solicitor: The only reason you have more male friends is because you're a good looking girl.
Me: Excuse me! The only reason I have more male friends is because good female friends are hard to come by. Gossip and bitching always gets in the way.
Solicitor: Do you honestly think that half of the men that you know would have bothered to speak to you and form a friendship if you weren't pretty?
Me: Yes I do! Men are not that shallow!
Solicitor: I bet every one of your male friends has thought about you sexually before.
Me: I don't think so! Do you think about your female friends that way?
Solicitor: I don't have many now. But when I did sex would enter my mind a least once for a few of the really pretty ones.
Me: Men and women can be Friends without thinking about sex.
Solicitor: That's what women think!
Me: So I should be jealous of your thoughts about your female friends then?
Solicitor: I don't have any pretty female friends so no. I should be worried about your male friends perving on you!
The conversation turned into a debate but it ended well. When we got to his front door we were already kissing and thumbling with buttons...
I'm still convinced that men and women can be friends without one of them thinking about sex and Solicitor is convinced that any male friend of a pretty woman has thought about sex with her at least once.
