So I am confused by how a girl has been treating me. The details are in a private entry cause I don't like to make stuff into a public drama. However, I have a few females friends with whom I discuss relationship problems so I can get a good idea of what to do and not to do from a woman's perspective. Or at least just to get an idea of what I come across like to someone else.
My friend Sara claims to have some ideas on how to "deal with this lady." I didn't get a chance to talk with her in depth about it yet; that will come later today. However, I view her use of the word "deal" with some trepidation. She's very protective of me.
Actually, come to think of it several other female friends are pretty protective of me in the same way. If a woman treats me poorly, I have no doubt that there are at least 3 female friends I know who would show up on her doorstep with tire irons and crowbars ready to rumble. Unasked.
My male friends wouldn't do that. They are helpful, but not protective.
So is this an extension of the mothering instinct? Is this the urban equivalent of Wild Kingdom, where the lioness guards her pride? Is it just my friends, or is this something that happens generally? Is it a function of time (I've known these female friends for years)?
