My best friend, whilst denying his girlfriend’s affections, because he’s tracing pictures of Batman from a graphic novel.
Get a life.
…says the guy tracing Batman
The nostalgia is beautiful. I might have been weird taking photos of the most insignificant things but the memories are priceless.
platonic relationships. Too frequently, I think, are friendships skipped over in favor of the more ‘thrilling’ romance in novels and movies. I’d like to read a book about two people who are simply friends. They’d love each other, of course, and have this amazing, deep, personal bond - it just wouldn’t be romantic.
Perhaps that would be boring, though.
Yeah, sadly, to most people, this is boring. Some people have this trick of planting the idea in someone’s head. So, you’re with your friend, and things are perfectly platonic, and then someone comes along and says “Oh, you guys should get together” or “You DEFINITELY fancy him/her.” and then the idea is there, and our human curiosity compels us to explore the option. Which in turn, might destroy the friendship.
…makes sense? Sort of?
Due to my refusal to get romantically involved with anyone, I have a lot of well meaning friends who tease me. Basically, if I’m ever in the company of a mystery female, she automatically becomes a potential partner. However, they’re always horribly mistaken as to what my relationship with the girl is. A few examples:
1. I was at a friend’s birthday drinks, ended up sat next to her best friend, a ridiculously attractive blonde girl. As it happened, she is happily married. Not an important factor for me, we ended up having a nice intelligent conversation; I now pretty much know all there is to know about her weirdly. Friend comes over, talks in my ear. “Bruv you need to get her number, look at her.” She’s sat right there, not awkward AT all. I indicate to my ring finger, friend doesn’t get the message. I have to text him “married.” He didn’t seem to understand why I’d want to talk to her for any reason other than sexual fulfilment.
2. Went to a local park with my best friend, his girlfriend and his work friend. Made a video. Showed my friends the video. “Who’s the pretty?” one asked. “Who is she? Eh? EH???”. “She’s my best friend’s girlfriend.” “…oh right.” with a smirk, like I’m lying. WHAT THE FUCK??? Why would I lie about that???
3. Cousin texts. Name comes up on phone screen. “Ooh. Female eh? EH?? YOU DARK HORSE!!!” …”she’s my cousin”. You retarded fuck. That’s sick.
So basically the moral is, even though you’re just being a friend, and teasing/coaxing your friend…don’t. Not because you’re embarrassing yourself, I don’t care about that. Because it’s fucking annoying.
