Thinky thougts
I wonder if it's deliberate that Sam doesn't haven't any male friends.

I mean, I figure he had good friends at college (we know there was Zach and Brady), but we've never seen him with a male "buddy" like we have Dean. We see Dean bonding with other males - Bobby, Gordon, Frank, Cas, Garth, Benny and even John, but Sam is seen as either butting heads with them or being downright enemies of them (Lucifer, Walt, Roy, Gordon, Kubrick, Greedy).

I know that Sam was close to Bobby but not in the same way that Dean was. Same with Garth and Cas. Both Garth and Cas attached themselves to Dean first, then got to know Sam. I figure they are as close to "friends" as Sam has in the show, but they're not just his friends.

I wonder if that's because Dean fulfils that role completely? Maybe Sam doesn't need anyone else (whereas Dean possibly does?).

I'm sure not if this is because there's never been a story line that has allowed Sam to develop a male friendship or because they have deliberately made this part of Sam's character (like his disastrous relationships with women).

It's not a complaint - just an observation.

Hmmm. *hugs* Sam. Maybe books are his other companion.

This is what happens when I enjoy a day off (yay back to 4 days a week!) and get my hair done. :)



I hope they don't use Cas to miraculously "fix" Sam this time. Surely the effects of these trials can't be fixed with a mere touch to the head (I mean, they could if they wanted them to be, but I hope they can't).

That is all. :)

I think Sam enjoys the company of women better.

Hmmm, possibly - but even then I don't see Sam truly opening up with them or being good "buddies". I think he had that with Jess - but I think what's interesting is what's happened to him post Stanford.

I see Sam's relationships with women as disastrous because of what's happened to the women after he's been with them. Ruby played Sam completely so I think that effects how he approaches other women (and men for that matter).

And I gotta admit I never considered Sam being super attracted to women. I see that for Dean moreso, but for Sam I think it's more about companionship and wanting to live that "normal" ideal.

I think Sam could very possibly form a bond with a guy (we have seen him connected with some - like Adam and Andy), but any potential friendships end disastrously so it makes sense that he is wary.

Hmmm..I love how complicated these guys are. :)
