Awwwe, thanks so much curlypearl.
I know exactly what you mean...I have a very close male friend (there's a thread analyzing him here somewhere...) who is probably the most solid, dependable man I have ever had in my life. He has been SO supportive, but I'm also scared if I let on how depressed I was, he'd really have it with me and just never talk to me again because he wouldn't want to deal with it. I know that's not true, but it's something I worry about...so whenever I talk to him I do try to be all, "I'm GREAT! Enjoying my time off! Everything happens for a reason!"
