I am, so truly happy, honestly, that you have met your soulmate. I am particularly happy that you met through me and am really, really happy that he is a truly lovely bloke. You deserve that, at the very least.
But, that said, please, please. please do not ask me out on any more of your nights out, I really don't think I can take it. I have actually started to like and respect your boyfriend a lot more than I do you - why, you ask??? Because, to be fair, your boyfriend is an absolutle gentleman and very kind and considerate. Why have I started to like him more than you?? A couple of reasons:
- he loves you and completely knows (and really respects) what good friends we have been
- he is an absolute gentleman and knows how important good friends are to anyone and knows we are friends and therefore minds me like an egg because you say I am important to you
I do realise that your life is really, really busy right now, what with work, family and having met the major love of your life. What I get really pissed off with, is the fact that you keep trying to pretend I am up there on your list - let's get real, I am not - invariably something has to give, I am, usually, that something - grand, that's actually fine with me. You are in love, working silly hours and trying to keep up with your new love and family at the same time. All grand, except, don't piss me off by constantly ringing at the very last minute to do something and pretending that I am on your list of priorities, stop trying to make me salve your guilt and make me pay lip service to the fact that your once in a blue moon phone-call puts me on your to-do-list; it doesn't - end of!!
I like you, I like your boyfriend, I DO NOT LIKE constantly being the last minute consideration, it just pisses me off - end of!
