Ok, so my feelings are getting hurt these days.
I have a male friend, we'll say his name is George, just in case the real guy knows my blog. I don't think he does but just in case.
Ok, so George and I have been friends for a very very long time. I make a new friend, we'll say her name is Karen. At one point Karen and George meet and Karen decides she wants him to be her friend, too. And George really likes Karen and wants to be her friend. Only, I think he thinks he is going to be able to be more than just friends with Karen. Karen has no interest in George as anything more than a friend but she has no trouble allowing him to think he might have a slight (ever so slight) chance at being more than a friend because he opens doors for her. I don't mean structural doors, I mean opportunities. So, now George doesn't want to do stuff with me anymore and I realize that Karen is not as good a friend as I thought.
So, my feelings are hurt.
