Close Friends -- bash.org Style
DragonflyBlade21: A woman has a close male friend. This means that he
is probably interested in her, which is why he hangs around so much. She
sees him strictly as a friend. This always starts out with, you’re a great
guy, but I don’t like you in that way. This is roughly the equivalent for
the guy of going to a job interview and the company saying, You have a
great resume, you have all the qualifications we are looking for, but we’re
not going to hire you. We will, however, use your resume as the basis for
comparison for all other applicants. But, we’re going to hire somebody who
is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic. And if he doesn’t work
out, we’ll hire somebody else, but still not you. In fact, we will never
hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the
person that we hired.
Occasionally you see something that just makes whatever you are eating / drinking at the time erupt from your nose. This to me is one of those things.
