Well, actually I want to be Stacey, but I have to say, I am having a bit of a time lately. I vowed to keep my morose ruminations to myself, and I am filled with self-loathing for even mentioning this here - but has anyone out there found themselves drifting away from someone who had previously been a very close friend? I can't be the only one.
Sure, it happens all the time. I've been acutely aware that I was more "into it" than my friend was for a while. What makes it awful is that I don't want to be just casual pals, as he prefers, at least right at the moment. I'm in unrequited friendship! This is just like when you like a person, and they like you, but "not that way." To be fair, my companion is making some changes in his life, and I do wish him well in his endeavors. It just couldn't be worse timed if I am having to scale back my expectations. This has resulted in a somewhat strained nodding acquaintance. I guess we will reconvene and see where we are somewhere down the road, but right now I am not holding my breath.
All you married and committed people have just one more reason to be glad you're not still single, no? I'm sure friendships don't seem as significant if you have a significant other. (Or are they?)
Well, says I, among other things I will have more time to blog. So here's a quiz to see if anybody is reading:
What was the worst friend "breakup" you ever had?
