This morning I got this email. Short and to the point..


YOU LOVE ME NOT.

I NEVER HEAR FROM YOU ANYMORE.......

xxxxx


So this good friend just wanted to inform me that I suck. Okay..noted.

But in my defense, NO ONE hears from me anymore so I think she should just chill the fuck out..

or take the hint.

I do not want to be heard from. I simply want to be left alone. Why is it that people think you need to be "cured" of that? As if reading a book or listening to an ipod without interruption is somehow a very sad thing that must be rectified immediate before life ends as we know it?

How does one respond to an email such as this? Errrrr...

Yeah....

I do kinda love you but don't want to actually have to hang out with you which is what a call would lead to?

Or...

Set up a lunch that I will either cancel at the last minute or go to, nod, smile and laugh at the right moments to get me off the hook for another month or so?

I am just not in the mood for people. I am in the mood to garden and remove waxy buildup. I am in the mood to take some long walks with the dogs and play Bejeweled on line.

I am in the mood to make a quick dinner, do the dishes and crash...

But I am not in the mood to exchange social pleasantries with anyone under any circumstances!

Since I can't say that...you never know who you might need to borrow money from in the future, I guess I am going to have drinks tonight with a friend.

Murtherfucker!

Hell Yeah on Bejeweled - find me on FB I got 102,000 high score last night!

I go through the same shit, but not for long periods of time. I'm too much of a people person.

Sometimes you just gotta suffer through shit because other people care about us, ya know?

Email her back and say, "Way to go. You guessed it on the fist try."

or

Over drinks, tell her/him/it what you just told us (but ask for the money first.)

hristine, i know how you feel. people can be such babies. that means all of us actually. in my less mature adult days, i used to take it personally when a friend didn't meet my standards of keeping in touch. it's childish and short-sighted.

take of of you. too bad if other people don't understand your methods of doing so.

Sorry Chris but it sounds like the same emotional blackmail inflicted upon man kind by the sit to pee sorority.

Welcome to the club take your shoes off have a beer

namaste said...

chris, i meant "take care of you."

i'm a real typing genius. NOT.

JG: You're right..I am an ole softy..From afar...very afar.

CP..Great minds think alike..that is exactly what I DID write back )of course before I said I would meet her at 6)

Nam,,you're right about the baby thing. I have a friend that has been in my life 20 years and she still keeps track of who called who last. Please...

RB: In the weaker sex's defense..I've heard this kinda shit from the "stand to pee" sex as well. I tend to be unattentive at times and people take it far too personally. I would much rather write an email or text than talk on the phone.

I can also go days on end without human contact. But Vinomom had a good point...Sometimes we have to do shit we don't want to do for the sake of our friends. Plus, there is booze involved!

Do what you need/or what feels comfortable for you. Whatever feels right for now, but meeting your friend might change your reluctance! :-)
