I Wish You Well (Or At Least Another Friend)

How do you know when someone doesn’t want to be your friend anymore? I assume it’s when they stop calling, or when anytime you make an effort to call and make plans, they continually cancel on you. It doesn’t sadden me so much as it disappoints me, because I really hate having to regret all the nice things I’ve said about someone (in addition to all the money I spent to be in their wedding).

I suppose this was bound to happen eventually, what with their constant expression that my unwillingness to get married and my preference for being alone must be detrimental to my relationship and, by extension, apparently, theirs as well. Or maybe that’s not it. Maybe the issue is something else entirely, but of course I’ll never know because speaking to someone would require that they see you face-to-face at some point this year.

It should be noted that I’m not trying to get anyone’s attention here. For one, I’ve already tried that and they keep cancelling the plans. For two, the person(s) I’m speaking of don’t know this place exists, but even if they did, I doubt it would matter much at this point.

  1. That’s always a bummer; sorry. I went through several friends like that, and once I redifined the friendship myself (“So they’re not people I can count on anymore, but they’re fun to drink with,”) I felt a lot better about the situation.

    Also, I just realized that I was so busy on my trip that I never wished you a Happy Birthday. I had plans to call/text/facebook, but then we got pulled over and all I could think about was how much I hate Texas. Anyway, sorry. Happy birthday!
