Do you or have you ever had a frenemy?
Yeah, one of my closest friends is kinda a frenemy to me because he's such a prick. I don't think he considers he a frenemy though because I'm not mean to him.
If he’s such a prick, why do you consider him a friend?
I've known him since 2000. He wasn't a prick then; his personality had a complete makeover. And we're both interested in philosophy and spirituality, both
very analytical, and both have issues from an extremely traumatic childhood
i don't really make new friends so i don't want to get rid of any of the few I do have. and for some reason I like talking to him.
(when he's not being an a$$hole)
(and even though I have to be very selective about what I say)
I understand. I was simply curious. :)
Why do think his personality changed?
We had stopped communicating for a few years and when we started again he was different. When I said he turned into a dick (using whatever words I did), he said
he hadn't been in touch with himself before, or something like that.
it's understandable that he would be a prick since he's in so much physical and spiritual/emotional pain all the time
but that doesn't explain why he wasn't before
