Ok, I don't want to pick on the ladies because I do adore them, but why are there some double-standards? I have a close friend who many times wants to talk to me and needs my help and emotional support, but as soon as I need hers, then she gets turned off and feels I'm clingy or something. And women need to hear "I love you" but if a guy needs to, then he's insecure...why is that? And why does my best friend status with this lady seem to change on the day? I've noticed other friends like that too. Is it wrong for a guy to want to feel needed? Ladies, please don't think I'm picking on you, I'm just trying to understand. I'd rather understand you than become a misogynist like some guys. How does a guy get back the best friends status or is it just a mood swing thing? I'd rather get input from women though, than going off on my friend like some sort of spaztic retard.
