    Very true and I have experienced many of these points so I’m wiser now.
    Another thing I noticed is that when you talk to your friend about the guy you love and even introduce them to eachother, you may find that she pretends like he doesn’t exist. She won’t ask of him or anything even when he sends her greetings she responds to you coldly and changes the topic. Yet, just hint her that there’s a problem between the two of you and she will be so excited to hear the gist. I just went through this and what I did was I cut her off. She’s been trying to ask me about him but I never discuss him with her. I even blatantly ignore a simple “how is X” from her.
