"Friends shouldn't be treated as leftover"

"My friends and I enjoying our vacation when suddenly,,,,,whoawwww,,,??????"
"You know taken out and heated up only when there's nothing fresh around?..."Face it, nothing is so insulting and infuriating as a girlfriend who drops out of sight the moment a Love interest appears on her horizon. Because the message she sends to her pink posse is; You are only worthwhile when there's no man around. You are (grout). You are a consolation prize. You are a backup singer...LOL.
Unfortunately, whenever the great romance finally hits some bumps in the road (and all romance do---it comes with the territory) this Invisible Woman usually reappears, seeking the love and support of the very gal-pals she abandoned. And this makes for a great deal of resentment, tension, and mistrust; (Oh, now you call us. Where were you when you weren't unhappy and needy?)
Why create this situation? If we can be conscientious about keeping up our hair and nails, certainly we can do the same with our friends. Yeah, romance is heady and love is blind. But this doesn't justify treating our friends like chopped liver. If we can manage to pay our bills during the first crazy days of passion, or even pick up a carton of milk once a week, surely we can pick up the phone, send an e-mail, and show a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T, to the people who have been with us through hangovers, makeovers, and sleepovers for years...(Once in a while we learned something, that even your very best friends you can't trust)....when it comes...hmmmmm....GG

i will have to agree with you on this matter!
friends SHOULDN'T be treated as leftovers!
leftovers are a few notches below chopped liver,
and we all know how bad THAT is.

Hi! Agree 90%. Disagree on the last couple of phrases. You cannot trust even your best friends? Yes, even best friends may betray your trust from time to time, but this is not the reason to stop trusting them! No-one is perfect even your best friends. You are not perfect for that matter. There are no perfect people. Good people are those that try hard to be perfect - but even they cannot succeed at that all the time. So be generous, forgive your friends and continue to trust them. This is just a sacrifice you have to make to keep the friendship. Even very successful market traders have a loss from time to time - but that never puts them off. This world isn't perfect and we have to learn to live in it. Peace.
