"you're very sweet"
Whats that all about,eh?
x x x
Nothing happened to spark this by the way.it's just a topic me and a friend were talking about.it's annoying.
rip your heart out through your arse and put it on the mantle piece as a new timepiece leaving you a hollow and empty casing in which your former self once lived.
...or maybe they really do just like you as a friend
The latter is so unlikely...
But yeah, it's a bit crap.
Friendships can be quite difficult after this point though. Up and down anyway in my experience.
you're going to forever be on the sidelines while they date absolute cunts :D
Act like a cunt once in a while.
It is significantly better than being dumped because someone, who finds you attractive, doesn't like you as a person.
happens to all of us, it's life. At least she thinks highly enough of you to tell you straight.
Now you can also hit on her friends.
if you see that as a negative, is that youre pretty much just thinking about getting laid. if you really like someone and like talking to them you can get all of the platonic joys of being in a relationship by being friends.
treat it at face value and really run with t. I.e. keep showing up at her house with a load of cans and a bongo movie. Keep texting her football updates. Call her a cunt for a laugh.
Now, let's engage in an entirely un-homoerotic wrestling match, like a proper pair of mates!
I'm a shallow bint who only goes for looks despite the fact we have a connection, so is going tease you for the next couple of decades.
Not that i'm bitter of course.
It was better in BC times. All you needed was a club, a cave and a good dragging arm.
I hate them and their shitty problems.
You must be used to them by now?
Its all true.
We love harry potter as well and cry along while singing to Smith B-sides
it all depends on what you wanted in the first place.
if you really, really like a girl then her saying 'just as friends' (a phrase that blighted my teenage years btw) just means i don't like you but i'm too nice/scared of telling you to fuck off.
it's the easy way out in other words.
and she'll 9 times out of 10 not be arsed to be friends with you after that either.
although sometimes it does happen and you do stay friends and are all the better for it.
it is probably the worst thing a girl can say to a guy though. it's like 'i know you like me, but i don't like you so let's create a farce in which we pretend none of this ever happened and you'll secretly grow more and more unhinged each day with the prospect of having to be somewhat normal around me even though you probably love me more than life itself'.
this happens alot in life.
it also happens alot the other way round ie. boys stop fancying girls.
i guess boys are just alot of less tactful in these situations and will just ignore a girl 'till she gets the message' or something.
so the girls have that cliched 'want to be friends' line.
and move into a laughably unaffordable flat with a singer-songwriter/massage therapist, a chef, a failed actor, a paleontologist, a waitress who inexplicably and somewhat implausibly becomes a fashio executive and a guy who works in accounts or something.
Then retire to your nearest coffee shop approximately once every 7 minutes to exchange predictable one liners that were written for you by 30 jewish guys.
You should know what she thinks of you before you dive in with a request of love.
Plus, she should be doing the requesting.
though i'm assuming it's another wrighty joke. because it's so hard to tell with you
It doesn't take a genius to realise what a girl thinks of you before you ask her if she wants your loving.
You can usually tell. You usually ask lots of other questions before, don't you?
You don't just come out with 'go out with me', in case this happens.
that puzzled me.
Population: Every very sweet guy on the planet
as I said,nothing happened to spark this thread.the whole thing is just laughable.It'd be so much better if someone was to call me a prick than "lets be friends".I like guts.
Here - have an enchilada.
'i like you but i don't fancy you' than 'i like you but i don't fancy you'
at least its tactful
doesn't mean they never will though, maybe that just don't right now...
dont give hope to people. People changing their mind and falling for a guy only happens in movies
I should know if this is true or not.
of course it's never happened to me so *cough*
i have made precisely 0 explicit romantic, uh, approaches since high school though.
i have used it the other way around though and going by this thread the fuss that's made by guys when girls use it is absolutely nothing compared to the furore and headless chicken confusion that occurs if guys use it on girls (and i was being completely genuine). especially if you have actually made it known in the past that you thought they were physically "attractive" (in an objective sense).
