there is one thing i especially hate in forming new friendships is abusing someones trust or care because you are bored or need a compliment. If i really do feel like i know someone well enough and they do this to me then usually i will play along with such charades as it usually leads to whatever issue that is of concern being talked about and resolved. If i have only known the person a short amount of time then that shit doesn't fly with me.
I had recently been chatting to a mate on and off over a couple of months when he through such a deal breaker onto the table. We aren't close and i don't really know him – but we chat still. He says he wants to kill himself because he is depressed. Naturally such a remark pricks my ears and i give this person 110% of my attention negating all others around me. When i try to get a conversation flowing and find the root of the problem all i get is fighting back. This person was looking to shock me for the sake of a few good words. He was not going to commit suicide – he even admitted this himself. I left that at that and pretty much classed this person as a waste of my time, i don't like being fucked around and this person did it to me.
While not completely cutting this person out i now entered any conversation with him with caution as is began to understand how this person worked. Out of nowhere he tell me he thinks he is anorexic. Again i open a discussion but get nothing back – and he then quickly changes the conversation topic. This annoys me.
His false claims have pretty much stopped me from interacting with him – i don't have the energy or effort to bother dealing with this person anymore, and thus they are now gone from my life.
