i was best friends with this one girl since the tender age of 5. she would always say awful shit to me and make me cry but i ignored it out of genuine sisterly affection for her. i should have realized how shitty she was sooner, but i was a child and i didn’t want to lose my best friend who by that point i had known for half of my life. the abrupt end to our friendship happened one year out of high school when she randomly blocked me on all social media (not before talking a ton of shit about me to her other friends behind my back lol) because supposedly i was the toxic one. she never even bothered to be upfront with me about the problems she had with me, she just bottled it up for ages and never fucking brought it up so of course it came as a huge shock to me when she cut off contact. i begged her for closure through our other mutual friends, but she was such a massive coward that she ignored that, too.
joke’s on her because i’ve been best friends with her other close friend (who she introduced me to) for about 10 years now and we’ve never had a falling out. i think the closest thing to a “fight” we had was when he got miffed at me for accidentally spoiling an episode of a TV show. our friendship is less drama and way more fun, and i never realized how dysfunctional my friendship with her was until i found a real friend who truly cares.

said, friendships with either sex are a mixed bag. most female friends i’ve had have either stabbed me in the back or just simply drifted away from me. there is a trickier balance with women in some ways but it can be really rewarding, and i think girls are like cats in that sense. they’ll let you get close one minute and claw you the next, but every cat is different and some are more trustworthy than others. i haven’t given up hope that i’ll find a female friend eventually and i can’t let one nightmarish cunt color my perception of an entire gender.
