It would ruin our friendship watch

    Ok so I have not got that response recently, but got it a few times in the past few years. I got those responses after telling the other person I liked them after a months of getting to know them, or even a few weeks, and was surprised they thought it would "ruin the friendship".

    Ive always been suspicious that excuse was a cop out until recently, when my friend got with a girl he works with. He has been at the company for almost 4 years and shes been there for 2-3 years. hes split up with his girlfriend a couple of months ago. Obviously, as they work in the customer services area of the shop, she would probaby have known he has at least had a girlfriend this time. And now they are going out. Was there any excuse of "it would ruin our friendship"? Nope, even though they have known each other for a while, and I have got that excuse.

    So guys, girls would you say excuses like those are cop outs, or actually genuine on behalf of the other person. they might think it would ruin the friendship. And what can I do to avoid excuses like that, and other ones I have been given like:

    - You are too good for me
    - You would make a good husband (lol)
    - Come back in a few times time (i got that response at uni)

    And just to round things off, a friend at uni who i did not have any interest in, said I am a real life Mr Darcy. just wow :eek3:
