How to evolve from being a deeply emotionally-involved friend to being just an ordinary, casual friend:

  1. Plan to move as far away as possible from friend.
  2. If #1 is not desirable or possible, pretend the friend has moved far away.
  3. Avoid the friend. Time and distance seem to be the best remedy.
  4. In the time between the time and distance settling in, make every effort to be otherwise occupied, thus preventing self-pity.


  1. So on #4...when and where are we meeting up?

  2. Distance helps. The last person I dumped moved away right at that time. It helped a lot.
    I'll have to share that story sometime.. Not sure when or where, but I bet I can weave it into my other story somehow. Has to do with 'completing tasks.' I got what I wanted. I was kind of a jerk.
    But it was fun. (don't tell anyone)

  3. Naturally I am interested in that story.

  4. I laughed when I read this post- not because I am being disrespectful, but because I, too, reacenly wrote a list very similar to this. Are you SURE you are not part of my mind?? :)
