The Serial Bestie

Certain types of people make me suspicious. For example: people who have a new “best friend” every six months, and completely shut out their previous “best friends”.

I wonder if they think it’s normal. I suspect it happens because the friender rushes to love people (not romantically, but like, “Jimmy’s so cool. I love that guy!”) and then, when the person turns out to be an actual person (rather than some idealized version of themselves) the friender feels duped, and the love turns to hate. I suspect there’s a lot of perceived backstabbing in the friender’s life.

Most of all, I suspect I wouldn’t want to be friends with them.
