Food for Thought

There probably isn't much merit in promising the future to somebody. After all, the future is as stable as Io's surface. What is truly remarkable is when you meet someone whose company you really enjoy but who doesn't want to promise anything beyond what's already there, and you're an idiot going about with your stupid romantic ideals, and you act all apocalyptic and tell them you know what get lost, I need my promises and you're not giving any, and you go your merry way and probably get to hear what you wanted to hear from someone else eventually but sooner or later all the dreamy wooing explodes in your face quite inexplicably, and you become the downcast type kicking pebbles when by chance you run into this person again and you find out that they don't hate you, and you ask them why, can't you see I'm an idiot, and they're like no, you're not, I think you're pretty cool actually, and you understand that the future's indeed as stable as Io's surface but if there were such thing as the ability to trace a line and decide who to walk it with it'd be that person, and you're absolutely sure you wouldn't want to be an idiot ever ever again lest you screw up this teeny tiny chance that life's just given you, because even if your own stupid romantic ideals have exploded in your face and you still have some heavy luggage to deal with, you can't deny how incredibly lucky you are. Now that is something to ponder about.

I'm writing this in kind of a hurry, so sorry beforehand.

Isn't that what you get from friendship? from the i-would-give-you-my-kidney friends?

Friends liking you even when you suck, yeah, that happens. You leaving a friend for a potential new friend who seems to cater more to your sugarcoated chatty needs—this I find a bit unlikely.

not that unlikely. You do leave friends behind, and find others. You just don't do it overnight. But it happens.

True. But the old friend - new friend exchange is not so sharply distinguishable. You don't leave a friend for another friend. Oh wait, you do. I befriended my friend's ex-boyfriend and she's hated my guts ever since.

So yeah, you're right: it could apply to friendship too.
