Question What is it with guys and cars?

I know this is probably a dumb question, but...

A few months ago, for my 16th birthday, I got this really crappy "hand me down" car from my brother. Although I really liked that car, everyone (and I mean everyone) used to make fun of it including him; which, by the way, didn't bother me at all because it was always nice and it was never mean. But, one day, unfortunately, my car died, so I bought a brand new and much nicer car.

When I had crappy car #1, I used to hang out with the guy I like (let's call him Joe), but now, ever since I got a new car, Joe always wants to do something, and he always wants me to drive my car wherever we go... or just drive the car for a few hours... I don't know about you guys, but in Cali, gas costs $2 a gallon, and even though my parents pay for gas, I sometimes put my foot down and say that I don't want to take my car and we end up taking his, but...

Even though we talk a lot, laugh, flirt, have serious conversations, share each other's secrets... I just can't help getting the feeling that he likes the car more than he likes me. I know that sounds dumb, because we have a good time together, and it isn't like my car is a "one of a kind" or anything worth killing over.


What is it with guys and cars??

I mean, I really like cars, and I know how much horsepower, cylinders, etc. are in anything from a Ferrari Enzo to a Ford Focus SE, but seriously, does the type of car matter?

I know a ton of girls go out with guys just because they like their cars, but are guys the same?? Please write back, I'm curious to know!!

to answer that, ask yourself what is it with girls and shopping/makeup/fashion/always trying to look their best? probably the same answer for the guys, because they love cars.
With much love, you are not alone
