I recently had this convo with on of my friends:
Friend: how come i don't hear from you unless I text or call u?
Me: damn hi to you too. You know how I am i don't call/text anyone unless I want something. I'm a crappy friend.
Friend: Could you please work on that U are neglecting me and I don't like it
Me: Sorry baby it's in my nature. You should know this by now.
Friend: i am trying to hope u will change and become a better friend. bu I am so giving up hope.
Here's the thing my friends know about me. I'm a horrible friend. I forget birthdays, I never call and matter of fact if you don't make an effort to keep in touch with me it could be months before I even think to hit you up. Double that time if I can't hit you on IM. I just suck as a friend. I know this and they know this. I like to think it's one of my many charms lol. I'm honestly surprised I have so many friends. I have 1 friend left from high school and that's because she is so damn persistent on calling me. She calls me like once a week. Sometimes just to say she loves me and to make sure I'm ok (don't get any ideas, she's married) She understands how I am. She doesn't get upset that I never call. Everyone else just kinda faded away. I know it's my fault and I should do a better job staying in touch, but I don't care. The friend I had the above convo with I've known for like 7-8 years. I met her in college and she always calls me first that's just how I roll.
I'm especially horrible to women friends. When I first meet someone I usually hang out with them alot till I get a feel for who and what they are. Then I get bored and go find something new to do. I have a long list of female friends who I gone out on dates with. They will all tell the same story, for no apparent reason I call less, stop asking them out and fall into that "friendship" zone. It's just how I roll... lol It's not like I'm having sex with them, we were just hanging out. We had fun now its time for me to move on. I just get bored easily. Like I said.. It's in my nature.
