EDITOR’S NOTE: The KSChronicles are the observations and insight of blogger and journalist Kerdisha St. Each article seeks to invoke a reaction and/or introspection from readers in Dominica and the Diaspora on various thought provoking issues and topics. This is a discussion that I was recently engaged in with some of my girlfriends.
Now we’ve all seen this classic TV/movie plot play out on the screen: guy meets girl, guy and girl become best friends, guy develops secret crush on girl, girl gets boyfriend, guy becomes jealous and confesses his feelings, and, finally, girl realizes she’s been in love with guy all along.
But does marketing shown to us on the television distort how we view male and female relationships?
Males and females have been living, working, and playing side-by-side since a young age, making it inevitable that they interact with one another.
This barrier is recognized by the comfort zone that neither friend in the friendship is allowed to violate.
