This is a misnomer
. The phrase
should really be, "Let's become friends
It's a process
. One that should be taken together
, not alone. The person
offering the phrase, though, wants the process to be an instantaneous change
Well, I got news for you: It's not. You can't expect me to re-evaluate all my feelings
at one instant assuming the stature of a friend
Just because it would be convenient
if I suddenly dropped off your dating list (so you can date others, maybe?
) doesn't mean that it's going to happen. Sure, you've been thinking about it for a long time, maybe even weeks, and I even noticed some changes in you
, but you have to allow
me the same amount of time
(if not longer).
Don't assume that since you've gone through the process that I don't need to.
And maybe next time you will discuss your feelings and intentions as you have them, when you have them, instead of waiting until you decided you wanted a change in our relationship
