reboundstudent Posted August 22, 2011 Share Posted August 22, 2011 Last night I was hanging out a particular guy (if you're a frequent EAlone poster, it's the same guy that took care of me while I was sick.) We were browsing pictures of the sci-fi convention we met at, and he paused on a picture of him posing with his arm around this girl. She looked exactly like someone you'd see running around the Playboy mansion; dyed blonde hair, fake tan, pierced navel, dressed in just a tiny bikini and bunny ears, you get the idea. I asked if guys really found that look (which I consider kind of trashy) attractive. My guy friend paused, and said that there are categories of attractiveness. According to him, this girl falls into the "One night stand without conversation." He said she was the type he'd sleep with once, but he couldn't see himself forming a connection with her, or her having qualities he would want in a girlfriend. He said other categories included "girlfriend whom you have sex with in a relationship," "one night stand with a friend," "sleep with a few times then decide you're better as friends," "not even when I'm drunk," and "really good friend who you also do sexy stuff with." (He indicated me when he mentioned this last category. Thanks, guy...) So my question to you guys: do you agree with his categories? Is it ever possible to move between categories? I ask because lately, any time a guy has shown interest in me, it's been of the Friends With Benefits category only. So I am apparently stuck in the "really good friend who you also do sexy stuff with" category. Is this like the Friend Zone for girls? And what exactly is the difference between "really good friend you're attracted to" and "girlfriend"?? Once a guy friend-zones you in this way, is your goose pretty much cooked in terms of a relationship with that person? Link to comment
