COT: I read an article a while back that described the differences in the way men and women interact through friendships and fellowship. The paper revealed considerable differences, but the one that stuck out to me the most was how men and women interact with each other. For example, men tend to have shoulder-to-shoulder friendships and women face-to-face friendships. I started to look back and realized I was trying to build male friendships over coffee and lunch while I should have been seeking opportunities to develop shoulder-to-shoulder interactions. With this knowledge, I’ve committed the last year to promote and encourage these types of encounters. They have come in the form of signing up for an ultra-marathon and running hundreds of miles with a friend. You can find a lot to talk about in those four-hour “long runs. It can be a simple as driving over to a friend’s house to swing a hammer to help with renovations and his old farmhouse. This commitment brought me here to F3 and recognizing that the second “F” is often more critical than the first.
