I wouldn't even know what to say to one if he had one.
I mean if I had one....See what I mean!!
Clearly, you don't miss that hypothetical friend.
So why are you telling us this? We don't like you.
Ann Coulter/OP - shouldn't you be taking your meds now?
r2 sounds like a lesbian
r3 give it up you won
R4, why the competition?
Also, if R3 won, are you one of the losers?
Gays will not want to know you unless you help them gain status, money and prestige. It's like, "I'm sorry, I sure you're nice and everything, but I just can't afford to take you on". They're terrifed of being embarrassed or looking uncool. And they tend to stick with the same people they've known forever (since college?).
So you may argue, "Well, why would I want to pal around with shallow people like that anyway?". Exactly.
Straight people are much more apt to allow newbies into their posse. Other straight ones, that is.
OP, Taking your seriously, you need to look in new places to find quality people. It won't help your self-esteem to find "fair weather friends," or those that focus solely on the externals. Please don't exclude straights, if you're all involved in a worthwhile cause or charity which is a good place to start looking.
R6 is mentally ill.
R6, you are wrong on so many levels. Having so many friends can be a pain in the ass, having one close friend is rewarding. You want the type of friends to like you for "you", not on how much $$$ you make...those are people you want to avoid, because they will just use you.
You gain friends by opening up to people. However, you let in the bad with the good sometimes.
R6, that sounds like a NYC/LA clusterfuck scenario. Whew, dodged a bullet there!
You should look to yourself. Maybe your standards are too high. Maybe your too needy. Maybe a Hitler's moustache and Groucho eyebreads isn't a good look for you. Also personal hygiene is required for all contact outside a pig sty. In fact, dangerous in a pig sty. They might think you're dinner
You're not missing much, OP. Just enjoy your own company. You're lucky after all...
Look at this way and see why you're lucky these are the people I associate with...well, not anymore. But, I did.
A few days ago at my gym, a gay "friend" of mine is friends with a guy who makes terrible homophobic comments about gay people, and he knows this, yet he's still friends with him. The guy has even called me a faggot and is rather obsessed with me with all the following me around he does and the constant staring.
But, you see, the guy who called me a faggot doesn't know that his friend (my "friend") is gay. Actually none of his friends, or his co-workers know. Just the other day my "friend" and the homophobe "bumped fists" (rolls eyes - my "friend" is 35 years old), and then my "friend" looked at me for my reaction.
Needless to say, this isn't a friend, OP. This is what I put up with, and this is why you're lucky.
You don't need Paxil. You're luckier than you think.
