I have to be bloody honest here, but there could be other reasons besides my charms and personality why they still hung around for years. Perhaps its because they secretly have fantasies about me in plus size clothes, or just admire my now wilted beauty. And for the record, I can see ugliness ...but I also have a heart for ugly things.
Anyhow, these guy friends of mine, some have the same ambitions as me. We can trade-off knowledge, and show our encouragement as we venture on our endeavors. Some are very resourceful and I CAN count on them for help when I needed them. They are around for various reasons, and are generally good people. Otherwise they wouldn't last a day with someone that has been raised catholic and even won the catholic bible studying contest from a seminary! Live by the rights and wrongs according to a world that has never seen HTC EVO Androids. That world is strict and ancient, but I picked and chose what I found is acceptable.
Until one day, my guy friend decided to say something that broke the rules and respect of friendship. I get turned off and scared, and decided to place him in a different category. It is at this point I slowly work on less contact, and since the contacts were so infrequent already, I don't tell them why.
Sometimes my technique backfired. The infrequent call happened one day and they didn't get a "Hey, how are you doing, long time no chat..." They kept calling because they are determined to know "how you are really doing?" and still no answer. They freaked out and tracked me down on other social media networks thinking something is wrong with me. And finally, they called me from an unknown number and actually caught me.
That's when I say: "Uh, well, my phone was dead for the last few weeks..." Yes, pretty lame, and I felt guilty for not having the guts to tell them exactly why, but I thought we were so infrequent that they won't even noticed my absence...
