I haven't lived near my family in 13.5 years.
I don't understand what it is like to have a family member close that you can call on for anything. I haven't had my mommy close for 13.5 years. My friends are my family - the ones I spend time with and rely on and look to for support.
I want to be that person for all of my friends. Especially, I want to be the girl that the man she is dating will just know, after an intense day of work, I'll take care of him. Whatever it is he needs - a good cuddle, a good meal, a good conversation - I want to be there.
The thing is...
Most guys around here have mothers.
And most of those mothers, naturally, do for those boys exactly what I want to do for them (minus the smooching/cuddles, that'd be mega-gross). And most of those boys are good sons and make time to spend with their momma's. Which means not only do I not get to do the sweet things for them, I also don't get the time with them either.
So where does that leave me? What's a girl to do?
