She's just not that into you

If my best friend was my boyfriend, I'd think we were only a date away from the "let's just be friends" talk. She's been trying to take me out for my birthday for two weeks now, but the juggling of two family schedules, Christmas, and both of our husbands on business trips has complicated our efforts. But if my best friend was my boyfriend and said he couldn't go out Friday night because it "conflicted with an HOA meeting", I'm pretty sure I'd think our relationship was on the rocks.

While on the phone with each other yesterday we tried again to find a good time. "Monday? During the day?" We both pondered and thought it had potential. Then she said, "Let's TENTATIVELY THINK about it." Tentatively think? I laughed and joked that it didn't get much more non-committal than that.

I guess it's a good thing we're already "just friends".

Next she'll be calling you so she can come over and pick up her stuff. You know those pot-holders of hers. And that casserole dish.

At least she is trying. If it makes you feel any better, her sister doesn't see her very often either outside of Sunday dinners. Crazy lives make it hard. I am still waiting for that girl's night with Laura and Erin as well.

I'm one of justrandi's "imaginary" friends and thought I'd leave a comment. Love the "tentatively think".

I just found you by way of JustRandi (hilarious "Sisters in Zion" verse, btw). You're funny. Just thought I'd let you know in case no one has told you that before.

What's this talk of a diamond bracelet for Christmas? I'm totally up for being bought!!!

Well, if it is any consolation, I've not seen her pilot parked in front of anyone else's house lately, so I doubt she's cheating on you! :)

And of course, it is hard to maintain a long distance relationship, now that she's crossed the country line!

That should be she crossed the county line....although we sort of think she lives way out there in another country! :)
