I May Lose My Lesbian Card…

MentapI may lose my lesbian membership card but I have a confession:  I love men.  There it is, I’m officially out of the closet as a member of the “Lesbians for Men” club.

I’m not saying I want to have relations with men.  It’s been 35 years – and I don’t care what the cliché says, some things are NOT like riding a bike.

But I just love the company of men.  I love playing golf with them, watching sports with them, gambling on games with them, and drinking in bars with them.

And until a few years ago, I even liked it when guys would flirt with me (so what if the flirt was from the “wrong” sex?)  This was rare… Gisele Bundchen I’m not.  But it ended the moment I let my hair go gray.

Straight women, heed my warning – if you enjoy “attention” from men, don’t ever, ever let your hair go gray.  One guy used to say “Patty, come here and let me buy you a drink” or “Patty, if I weren’t married…”  Now he says “Hi Pat” and shakes my hand.

Thank goodness flirting was low on the list of why I love men.  Even with gray hair, I still love playing golf and watching sports with men.  And my favorite is hanging out in bars with them – I always birdie the 19th hole!

    Patty, couldn’t agree more. I am not interested in men in certain specific ways, but have known for many years that I prefer the company of men for several things…golf, boating, fishing, etc. I actually gleefully had a “golf boyfriend” for several years – a fact that his wife should never have been one bit worried about.

      Hmmmm, “Should never have been…”. Meaning she was?

    I agree. Cyndi may sing “Girls just wanna have fun” but really, the guys KNOW how to have fun!

    I should have married you! We could have had a totally open marriage but I wouldn’t get my balls busted about watching sports on TV.

    Well, I used to belong to the male lesbians club. It’s a wide open world! 🙂
