Talking with a few gay and straight friends about intimacy, I'm becoming convinced most men just kinda suck at it.
What do you do with friendships with people who have treated you poorly but claim to like you? When do you disconnect despite seeing potential in the person, or when do you give up on them or the friendship?
I believe a person's character is revealed by their interactions with people they don't have to play nice with to keep them on their side, or for whom they don't feel particular affection or attraction.
