But the thing that bothers me, is when people of the opposite gender, say things that shouldn't be said, unless they are truly meant.
Here are some examples:
- "Sure we are best friends" - this may be a wonderful thing to say to someone. However, if every time you try contacting them, you get no response. Or if you need someone to call and talk too about something, they never pick up. Then don't fake the friendship, because it is just wrong.
- Terms of Endearment - Such as saying"Good night" vs. "Good night WM", the second is a more personal touch. And if you have a nickname, that is made up by that person, to sound more lovey-dovey, and you go with "Good night _____". But if you don't mean it, just go with "Good night", and keep it simple.
- I love ____ - This is a common one. Don't use the word 'love' casually too often. It gets outplayed/overused, and loses meaning. Also don't say it to another person, and then fall into the category of #1.
All these things are mistakes that just leave the other person hurting, and why would you do that to someone you claim to be best friends with?
