I was talking to a guy-friend at work the other day, recapping each other's Valentine's Day celebrations.
Me: How was your V-Day?
Him: Good. I had a meeting with a bunch of old, married guys (that is voluntary on his part, and happens every week). She and I will do something this weekend.
Me: WAIT!!! You kept your regular meeting instead of spending V-Day with her?!
Him: Yes, she said she didn't mind. Besides, it's also her birthday and she was going to her parents' for dinner.
Me: Oy. You cancel the meeting and take her out.
Him: We're not officially "boyfriend/girlfriend" so there's no obligation for that.
Me: You have to behave like a boyfriend before someone will call you a boyfriend.
Him: I do! She doesn't behave like a girlfriend.
That all sounds an awful lot like....a line a boy normally gives.
And you know what I say about boys...
So I guess girls can have cooties, too.
