One of my close guy friends moved away recently and we didn’t talk much while he was away. It’s not that surprising. Guys don’t usually talk very frequently with other guys… at least.. that’s what I find. A few months later, he came back to deal with a few necessities. When he came home, he sent me a text letting me know that he was free later in the evening.
Shortly after, he called my home number. It was one of the few numbers I recognized. He asked me what we should eat for dinner later. It was such a “typical” moment between two close guy friends. After months of being out of touch, not even a “Hello, how’s it going?”. No small talk, just straight to the point. And that’s how we like it between two good friends. It’s stereotypical and it works just fine for me.
