Dear Significant Other of my PLATONIC Friend who Happens to be the Opposite Gender that I am:
NOTE: I’ve seen a number of good platonic friendships end, including a recent one of my own. I don’t get the jealousy and mistrust that seems to be going on these days.
(Whew that was a long salutation).
Sorry for the momentary digression. First, and most importantly I am NOT after your SO. We are platonic, not romantic so there is a line in the sand, K? Your SO chose YOU to share lives with, not me. Maybe it was your tight tush or your electric personality or all of the above. You have that special something in your beholder’s eye. Get over that insecurity.
This second one applies to the marrieds only. This world is not set up into Camp Single and Camp Married….Just because I am single and your SO is married to you doesn’t mean we can’t interact within the bonds of friendship. Your SO committed vows in front of everyone. I have morals and playing grabass with someone who is married is a violation.
Thirdly, maybe your SO and I work together and I have to spend 10 hours a day together with your SO. That is called a PROFESSIONAL relationship. Come sit with us and witness the magic your SO does to earn that paycheck to provide for you, NOT me. TV lies, not every working relationship turns into a fuckfest.
Fourthly, (I didn’t realize I could count that high)…Going through your SO phones or having your creepy friends follow SO around town is not going to improve things. It is sneaky and creepy. I say that from first hand experience. My ex SO did that to me. It erodes trust. And let me ask you how would you feel if that happened to you? If you think something is going on, ask!!! If you don’t trust the answers there is something deeper going on.
Fifthly, I’ve reached the end of my digits and my patience. Your SO and I may share a number of things in common. Sports, fashion, movies, work, hobbies. We may also share addiction, depression or something just as dark and talking about it is called support, not come fuck me now. What we do not share is the desire to fall in love with one another. That is to be enjoyed by you. The recap is that I am not after your SO. Period. The End.
The PLATONIC friend of your SO who is the opposite gender of me.
I’ve shared my thoughts, what are yours? Thanks!
