An ode to the nice boys around YOU!


 We are the ones who talk to you all night when you’re down. We change our whole schedule once you tell us to. We reach college early and stay up till late, when you feel bored. We dance and sing for you, knowing well we suck at both of them. We feel it’s our duty, some kind of a moral obligation to be with you all the time, to entertain you, to make you feel special, all the time. We are the first ones to be told when you break up with your guy, the first ones to know you had a fight with your mom, we stay up all night so that you could sleep well, we wipe your tears off and make you smile again. We are not your boy friends, no, but ironically, they are the reason we exist in your life. They screw up and make you cry, and we make you laugh; they save us. We envy them, for they can hurt you anytime and get away with it, while if we do it, you don’t talk to us for days.


We are a little too fat, or a little too black, we don’t have the perfect body, or the phenomenal dressing sense, we are normal in every sense of the world, no less human though, but we are not considered in the grand scheme of things. We are not considered the boyfriend material. We are just friends. We do everything that is required, we try hard, but we remain there, in the friendzone, while a number of guys come and go and have a share of your love. And it’s not like we are the side actors of some drama that you and your guy are staring in, we have our own life, our own troubles, but we give you more importance, or the MOST!

But I think, it’s not just your fault, even we screw up. We leave things for too late. We think, someday you’ll realize you had us all along. We wait for that someday for too long and one day you come up to us and say, ‘I don’t believe in love anymore’. We think God will help us somehow. And we act as the God for the guys who have a crush on you. We tell them what you like and what you don’t. We give them tips and suggestions on how to impress you. We praise them in front of you. We don’t know why we do it. We shouldn’t. We should just propose you. But we are too afraid of the world and its reaction, ‘how could you propose her? a friend proposing a friend and ruining the whole friendship? Why?’ So we never do, we never let you know what we feel for you. And trust me, it’s much sweeter than what your boy feels for you, and truer than the feelings of all the boys you have ever dated combined. We can kill and get killed for you, but we never get a chance for that. Sometimes because of this uncontrollable urge we keep looking at you, noticing every little moment you make both consciously and subconsciously; the way your chest moves when you breathe in and out, or the movements your nose tip makes, or the dimples on your cheeks, or the way that brown shirt hugs your whole body, or the way your hands dances while telling a story in perfect rhythm with your eyes, or the way you don’t care how you look in front of us, or the way you make faces when you see the people you hate, or the way you smile for no reason and it feels even for some moments that OUR world is alright, everything so subtle yet so powerful. We are the most romantic you’ll find, if given a chance. But all we get is to be a shoulder when you need to cry. And it’s not like we hate being that, no, we love it, we absolutely adore it, when you share the most intimate things with us or you just talk to us till late. But there comes a point, when we can’t take it anymore, we can’t smile and say ‘he is so sweet’ when you talk about the new guy you saw, we can’t just let you talk to your ex when all he does is make you mad, we can’t let you ignore us and our little feelings we have so profoundly, but the truth is we do it, because we are the ‘I have never thought of him like that’ guys, we are the ‘he’s just a friend’ guys and because maybe we love you!

And no, we are not asking you to love us back, be passionate with us; we are mature enough to understand that love doesn’t happen like that, it shouldn’t. But we need some admiration; sometimes we need you to play the role we play in your life, sometimes we need you to think about us, sometimes we need you the same way you do. You don’t have to be romantically involved with us if you don’t feel like, but all we want is to be considered someday or maybe appreciated for whatever we do for you. We are not your boyfriends, we might never be, but at least don’t make us feel like the pillows or the soft toys you only hold when your boy friends make you cry. The tragic part is we don’t even mind being that as well because we are the nice guys and all we know is be nice to you, because maybe we love you the most of all!

So here is a post for those guys, one of its kind maybe, I know you are there, reading this, smiling maybe, you have been spotted my friend. It’s okay when sometimes you get upset because of all this, it’s natural. You are nice and never stop being nice. And she’ll realize that she had you all along, maybe now or sometime later, and boy will she regret!

Hey! It has a follow up part as well. Read here:

  2. That was the sweetest post I ever read. I have always had more guy friends than girls because they can take sarcasm and they never gossip ! But the reason there was never anything more than frienship was because it ruins everything. Even if there were some sparks,I wouldnt risk our bond for that,never ever.
    Hope I always have them along by my side. Here's to all of them ! :)

    1. Thank you Ritika, yes boys do sarcasm better, but they dont gossip? :O i am lady? wait. NO. no.
      and yes, it does ruin most of the times, i agree. but this was more about that one guy, a friend, who loves you completely and honestly, and he never gets the chance to express it.
      one should at least respect other's feelings. i mean.
      this girl hurt me man. :/
