Can you tell just by looking?

So this weekend one of my girlfriend's childhood friends was in town visiting and she sent an email a couple weeks ago wanting all of us to meet up for a drink before she heads back to the Mid-West. I never met her before (except some old college photos) and only heard her name mentioned occasionally so I really didn't have much expectations.

Her appearance reminds me of a typical dyke. Short hair and no make up, her mannerism is kind of manly. She was in a pair of jeans, a L.L.Bean shirt, and a pair Sketcher shoes. OK, maybe that's her style but to me thats a little too butchy for any woman.

When she showed us pictures of her life in the Mid-West, I noticed most people she hangs out with are women and they are all very lesbian looking.

After we got home, I asked my girlfriend if her friend is a dyke and she got offended and told me her friend is not. I asked her how she knows and she said she knows her all her life. Then I asked why her friend is 42 and not even dating, and the answer was that she did date but was hurt so she shies away from relationships.

I know I can't make a judgment base on people's clothing, but don't you guys think most women like to dress like a woman, not like a man? Unless she is a dyke? Then again, some dykes are very feminine, like Ellen DeGeneres.

Clearly in the pictures I saw some of the women were hanging on to one another, a gesture you never see me doing with another guy. So my girlfriend thinks I am insulting her friend and what goes in my mind is why is she defending her? Then I was getting panic thinking maybe my girlfriend is yet to come out of the closet. Yikes!!!

Something sounds a bit fishy to me.

I have friends who you would bet large sums of money were gay but are married with several kids, dressing just like you mentioned. My 35 YO single vet dresses like and looks like you describe but her boyfriend of two years would most likely argue the point.

On the other hand, I have friends who are gay that you would bet big money were straight as arrows based on actions, dress, looks, friends.

Maybe it's the midwest but there does not seem to be that kind of stark differentiation.

Which?

Some guys aren't into skankers or house boys.

The one on the right, with the dyed red hair is a very certified 160+IQ genius. She is in medical school right now and does pretty good for herself. The pic was taken at the other one's 21st birthday party. She is in Education.

Of course you can't - take Shane for example:

Oh, wait a minute..............

Shane can come to Lexington or Atlanta or Knoxville or Dayton and fit in with everyone. Maybe I shouldn't have said "fit in".

And I do like those shoes.

Well, in that case, I'll take back the house boy comment!
