No pretense. No stigma.
Now, I do it all the time with men in my life.
There’s no weirdness, there isn’t even a second thought about it. No alcohol involved, it’s not a slobbery, “I love you Man!”
What do you think?
I agree with you, but what’s really surprising is how many men can’t seem to do it without making a joke about it or getting side-eyed by other men when they do. I suppose this is a question more in the line of, “Do you do this in your life, and if not, why not?” I, of course, feel like this is perfectly normal to do, but there are a lot of people out there who either don’t agree, or agree but fear some sort of repercussion for their actions.
