“I can live for two months on a good compliment.”  Mark Twain

In the world of women, females can be brutal. They can steal your guy, never return your sweater, dis you behind your back, or worse not include you.

Great girlfriends are not over rated they are precious friends that will go into the trenches for you and you know it. They will last through the decades and you always are nurturing of that female relationship. They are your sounding board; they are your sweet friend.

Even if you have a tight group of girlfriends that will be with you to the end, nothing beats that gay guy. He will tell you like it is from a guy’s perspective with a girl’s enthusiasm. It may be the most enlightened information you can get. A gay guy will protect you and try to give your much needed glances into the male species. He is one to laugh with and to put on your arm. His friendship differs, well, because he is gay. This rare and wonderful sepsis may be able to help you to “put it all together” in respect to fashion, decorating, and style. He will be able to tell you what men really want. Really? Yes, the key to the male kingdom is held by a gay guy?… Maybe, if you’re lucky. There is no competition with him, he is looking for something different so going out on “the prowl” might be fun.

Connecting my journey with men I wrote about a gay male friend of mine. It was brilliant timing for me to have this type of friendship from a man. I was lucky. He shared with me many insights into the male perspective. I am glad he made it into my book “A Man for Every Purpose My Naked Journey Searching for Love”.

This male friend of mine served a great purpose and for that I am grateful. I will admit I have had struggles with female friendships when I was a single mother. I felt judged and to some extent shunned. I was single, I did not fit into the married-mold that existed in Orange County (back in the day). I lived through it to tell the tale. I found more of myself and left behind shallow behavior. It sounds corny but I gained strength that I would have not otherwise known.

Cheers to being single, or being coupled, and having friends of all sorts.

Although I would like to say I am organized, focused and cookie-cutter, that simply would not be me. I am no different than any other woman in the world. I love to love, love hard, and, in the end, have learned to love myself above all else. So here I am, writing about the many men and the multiple purposes they have served in my life. Realizing that not one man on my roster had fulfilled every single one of my needs. Perhaps one man is not supposed to? I have compiled snippets of the men that have entered my world. In the end, they have shoved me towards my bathroom mirror, forcing me to take a better look at myself. Reflection is brilliant and the strongest guidepost into ourselves.

Working on the next book in the series “A House for Every Purpose, My Journey From Pillow to Pillow” revels a woman abandoning her home in search or her identity beyond men, motherhood, author.
