Just One of the Guys

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Before I get into today’s post, can I just tell you how much I love Thursdays? It’s easily my most favorite day of the work week – Friday is so close you can almost taste it, which motivates me too be super productive. Thursday is hands down my most productive day of the week.  And once Friday comes its nothing but smooth sailing.

So now that I’ve got that off my chest, lets focus on the real topic at hand – my night out. While at work yesterday, Mr. Chubbs sent me an email inviting me to the Knicks game. Apparently he and his buddies decided to all buy tickets and as with everything he does, Jeff invited me. Even though it was all boys.

I couldn’t make it to the game, but did join them for dinner at Kun Jip in K-town (Korea town). Jeff ordered for me before I arrived, but he got it right – a hot seafood pot.

There was also tons of banchan, which are the small plates served before a meal, including my personal fave –  kimchi!

Dinner was so delicious and as always with Jeff’s group tons of fun. I love being with the guys, but I have to wonder if its normal for Jeff to always include me on his boys testostrone and hgh nights. On the one hand I’m flattered that he is that comfortable with me – I think it shows how strong our relationship is and how much we value each others friendships. The fact that his friends also like having me there is another big boost to my self esteem, its nice to feel the love.

But are Jeff and I too comfortable with each other? Are there some things that should be kept separate? For me the answer is yes. Even though I’m completely comfortable with Jeff hanging out with all my girls, there are times when I just want to be with my friends. I don’t keep secrets from Jeff but some discussions are better suited to my girl friends. And I feel as though the same is true for him. Even though his guys friends enjoy my company, I’m sure there are occasions where the atmosphere is changed just by my presence.  Plus I hate to feel like we are dependent on one another. Yes we are a couple, yes we live together, and yes I constantly refer to us as we, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be individuals.

So what do you think? Is it okay to spend so much time together? Have you ever been considered one of the guys?
