Isn't it strange, how people can have different viewpoints on subjects.
I did not have good make role models. A violent father, a sexually abusive family member, a predatory workmate who took advantage of his position- all these have made it difficult for me to even like men, let alone trust them. However, my best friend is a male. He is a huge, bald, six-foot-three giant of a man, and yet I love him with all my heart. He's straight, and single, and never once has he made a move, been inappropriate or given me reason to distrust him. When I get married, he is going to be my best man.
He's restored my faith in men, but that will never lead me to want to be in a relationship with one.
