You meet and through some commonality you become friends
Then you meet at a different time and she/he kind of ignores you
You say hi and they respond with a quick and courteous hello
Then another time they relate to you an experience in their life
And everything feels like the first time you met

"There's two sides to this person", you think
There's days when they are present in their body
There's days when they do not remember you
But that's cool 'cos when they remember, you're still there
And you'll always be that sister, 'cos you really can't choose your family

Backgrounds seem similar
So why can't you relate?
Money ain't a thing and no situation is permanent, my friend
Just remember that no matter what, we both want to please Him
And he only looks at the heart, not what's on the outside

So yeah, you try to put it out of your mind
Maybe you're just being paranoid
Is that smile genuine or not?
Didn't mean to steal your shine, friend
And remember, you're a star all your own...

Warm, thoughtful post, as usual, though I think frenemies are a more hateful breed than what you describe here. The person you describe may have 'off' days or a complex or two, but frenemies come close to you with the intention of hurting you. I know what I am talking about. I discovered I had some earlier this year.

Oooh i'm loving this. See you being sneaky. Why didn't tell me you revamped your blog?! Frenemies, i like that word. Not sure how to avoid it but i can so relate as well. I have friends that i can't really tell if they're friends anymore. Funny smiles. Bragging about jobs and money and ish...oh lord. sigh.

Big ups on the blog. Be coming back soon.

@ Dith- it's kinna sad isn't it?
@ Nana Yaw- Hmm, it is a very grey area! Sometimes you don't know if you shd rejoice on the days they want to be friends or give them a tatse of their own medicine
@Esi- Thanks, lol...not being sneaky. You disappeared for a while. What were you up to. Glad you like it! Sometimes, I think they forget that material things never last...

I don't have luck meeting genuine people so I mostly keep to myself and family. Plus I've always been a social butterfly.

Thats the word, FRENEMIES. I just dont get it, honestly. Its like there's masses of bipolar people walking around.
I wonder if I have ever been guilty of that though. For me, i have a really bad memory when it comes to names and faces, double trouble. So i may have done that hot-cold thing before, maybe not, who knows.
But yep, it definitely annoys me!
