Supportive people?

Do you guys have anyone in your life who is very supportive of your curly hair and understands the troubles you go through?

For example two of my coworkers have naturally curly hair and support me. My boyfriend also has patients when I "squish my hair" (crush out my gel) before we go out.
Fine, 2c-3a, high porosity, high density, bleached ends.

    My boyfriend has hair very much like mine so we know of the 'struggles' of curly hair and we support each other. I tell him about things I learn here. He looks for conditioners he thinks I'd like to try for my hair experiments. : )

    Other than him and the people here at NC, I don't have anyone else who really gets my hair. Most people think I should straighten it or cut it short or dye it. But I love my natural hair and will continue to wear it how it makes me happy.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.

    My BFF. We always call each other right after a haircut, and our messages to each other include a "hair report."

    My hair was wild, long and curly when I met my dear hubby. It was my one of my most distinguishing features he said. He has been most supportive of my struggles since day 1.

    My BFF. We always call each other right after a haircut, and our messages to each other include a "hair report."

    My best friend has very thin, straight hair while mine is very full and curly. Although we have different issues we "get" each others hair problems and give each other updates as well!
