I love when my crib has one more voice other than my own.
As a single Fox, you can live a semi lonely life.
Sure, you can have a contact list full of friends and associates.
But I believe your home is your sanctuary and not everyone needs to be up in there.
You can also have various Wolves in and out giving you pipe when you need it.
But, as you are waiting for the right Wolf, you can come home to a lonely house 95% of the time.
I had my Cuz, who happens to be a Hybrid, stay with me for the weekend.
He is from another Forest and wanted to visit, since he had business to take care of.
He had no where to stay and I would not have it if he stayed at a hotel.
I had prior engagements to take care of, but we still had a chance to talk and catch up.
On his end, he ended up having a strange situation with a dude he met last year.
Left me wondering at the end of the story:
Uh, is that guy straight or not????
Cuz met a guy last year under the weirdest situation when he came to the Concrete Forest.
He was coming back from a business party at 3am down in Brooklyn.
He was alone in the train station and a young dude caught his eye as he walked in.
He took nothing of it…
…until dude asked him if the train already came.
Cuz told him nope and he sat next to him and started random conversation.
They talked about where they are both from, work info, and then “the question” came up:
“Are you gay?” dude asked.
“Why do you ask?” Cuz asked.
“Just asking. My best friend is gay and I am cool with it.”
“I’m more so bi.” my Cuz lied, for whatever reason.
Instead of a silent ride, he decided to show my cousin pictures of his girlfriend.
The guy asked to exchange info and then he got off at his stop.
While in my Cuz’s hometown, they kept in contact regularly.
Talked about everything like his baby mama drama to what they bought at what store.
When my Cuz arrived this year, the dude wanted to chill.
Cuz met up with him and his new girlfriend, where he was introduced to her as his “cousin”.
The Vixen was bubbly and excited and wanted to know more about their “family”.
Thrown off guard, Cuz made up a story and she took the bait.
The dude introduced him to all his friends, and like with the Vixen, my Cuz was introduced as his “Cuz”.
He is straight, but that sounded so sketchy to me.
Why not introduce my Cuz as his “friend”?
When did he upgrade to “cousin from another mother”?
I asked my Cuz if he flirts with him and he says it is strictly platonic.
Even my Cuz is confused, but he cherishes the friendship and never crosses the line.
It made me wonder about straight Wolves and how they handle gay Foxes, Wolves, and Hybrids.
Sure, they are homophobic men out there who will throw up at the word, “gay”.
Some will shun you even if you are remotely different than what they are use too as a man.
But, the ones who accept us for who we are, we often question their motives deep down inside.
Are they feeling us? Are they being genuine? Or, will they strike when they get us alone?
So many questions it makes our tails spin…
So, when it comes to straight men and platonic friendship…
