A bothfriend.

Someone wrote…

I don’t want a boyfriend or a girlfriend. I want a bothfriend.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    this is SO CUTE! I also feel like I might use “bothfriend” to describe how I want to be in relationship with someone…. I also wanted someone to use boygirl-friend for me.

    Anyway I like it.

    Both of my lovers have come to this conclusion through my gender fluidity.

    We are providing change, one by one!

    This is pretty much how my girlfriend sees me, I think. =D

    I’ve always preferred to be a bothfriend over other things, and prefer the presence of bothfriends over other people I find.

    I’ve never thought of it like that until now though, but it’s been pretty much how I’ve acted all of my life.

    I hope this is how my boyfriend sees me. Such a great word to describe myself, thanks for sharing it!

    I’ve been looking for a more gender-neutral relationship term for a while. Bothfriend sounds realy good :)
