Loving Guy Love



I love love. I love man/woman love. I love man/man love and woman/woman love. I also love Guy Love. It’s non-sexual and it’s full of affection despite the way men are supposed to act around each other.

It’s just 2 guys who really love each’s other’s company, are ok with hanging out to watch a movie and aren’t afraid to show their affection for each other. I’m talking about real hugs here, not the mock guy hugs that are 1/2 hand shake 1/2 back pat.

We see a lot of guy love on television. The most notable pair is JD and Turk who coined the phrase with their song Guy Love. Ok so maybe their relationship goes slightly further from the average straight guys who are best friends but I think that’s just because they both have a very strong feminine side. Yeah, that’s it.

There is also House and Wilson. They drive each other crazy, they piss each other off and often Wilson talks as if he wants nothing to do with House but in the end they are always there for each other. They also bicker like they are a couple, which is too adorable for words.

My new favorite pair is Walt and Jesse on Breaking Bad but they have a weird friendship where at times it’s like father and son. In the show it always seems like they are going to “break up” but then somehow they end up together again, which makes me feel so much better. I’m fine with things not working out for Walt and his wife but he has to make it work with Jesse.

Of course there is one of the original guy love couple’s: Chandler and Joey.

    I love Chandler and Joey and House and Wilson. I need to start watching Breaking Bad. I have yet to hear anything bad about that show. And you said in your last post you compared your love of that show to Six Feet Under, as show that I loved! Loved! Loved! So, I think you may have sold me on trying to find it and DVR’ing it.

    The guy love song on Scrubs is one of my favorite, and the Turk/JD relationship is awesome.
