Ever meet someone who completely blows your mind and right away you know you want to count that person among your friends. Someone who you can talk to, relate to, learn with, laugh with and be totally comfortable with? Someone who you feel was MEANT to be in your life in some capacity?
Ever have that someone completely change, do a 180 on you, turn into someone you didn't think they had the capacity to be? Ever have that someone disregard your feelings and piss your friendhsip away without so much as a word of explanation? Ever have that someone treat you like you don't matter?
Well I have and it sucks. I had a friend who I thought was such a teriffic person; genuine, kind, funny, intelligent, compassionate. Turns out this friend is flawed just like the rest of us. Lonely, afraid, insecure. Turns out this friend doesn't value the friendship of someone who really cared about them. Turns out this friend has a lot of learning and growing to do.
Sometimes we think we know someone but really we only know the parts of them they have chosen to share with us. We assume that they are being open with us about their feelings, their beliefs, their character and we are then blindisded by the part of them they have kept hidden from us. Well you know what they say happens when you assume......you make an ASS out of U and ME.
I won't say that this experience has made me not want to become friends with other people. I know that there are good people out there who would make fantastic friends. But it HAS made me rethink how open and trusting I am, and that's a shame. It's a shame that I will now be hesitant when meeting new people, wondering if her or she is sincere. What a shame.
Maybe the next person will have the GUTS to work on a relationship instead of sticking their tail between their legs and hiding.

We do a lot of things with our mobile phones. How confident are you that your cell comes with adequate security and privacy technology?
Whether it's a jealous S.O. or a nosy friend, have you ever caught someone looking through your phone when they shouldn't have been?
A new study found that listing exercise equivalents next to menu items could lead to healthier choices.
According to Andrew Zimmern, host of Bizarre Foods and former chef, restaurant review sites like Yelp, Zagat, and Chow are for morons.
