That would be me. I can joke around and get as nasty (or nastier) than anybody out there... but, as far as real life goes, I always said that if you weren't actively involved in my sex life, you didn't need to know about it. Period.
Having said that, I want to address an issue Jason brought up re: friends vs acquantances. That guy isn't me and I disagree with the notion that only guys are who you talk "friend stuff" with. I'm fully aware of the difference between the two. I think that maybe the difference is that I (and the vast majority of my circle of friends) are either in the military or ex-military. When you go overseas, you essentially live in a fishbowl. The people that you know and hang out with is limited, due in large part to language barrier, to the other people assigned to that base. What are you going to do, cut out half the people there?
That said, military and ex-military makes up a large demographic in the country... so I don't think that "there are exceptions" excuse particularly flies.... particularly since, having grown up in and around the military, I've moved a TON and met lots of people... and my general experience is that more guys tend to think like you do if you're looking at a demographic between adolescence and, say, 25 years. Above that, however, I think that the vast majority tend to be on my side of the equation.
