We've all been there.
The friend who suddenly drops off the map, and you just know: "Oh. They must be dating somebody again."
And then a couple of weeks/months later, you hear from them again, as they start up a simple conversation (such as: "Hey, how are things?" or "What's new?"), and at some point, the conversation becomes "BTW, we broke up."
At which point, you respond "Oh, you were dating?", and they vent on you for a bit.
And being the good friend you are, you listen to them, and you let them back into your life, as a friend, until they repeat the scenario again.
But what happens when they drop off the map, and one day, a few months later, you get a: "I'm engaged!!!!" text?
Well. For me. I simply respond: "Congrats."
As now I know, they are coming back again, because they want friends to show up at the wedding, and hopefully give lavish gifts.
But maybe, enough is enough.
"Congrats". I seriously mean it. Congratulations on finding the person you think you are going to marry and spend the rest of your life with.
But I'm tired of your childish games, and that's all I think you'll hear from me.
PS. I think I shared this blog link with the person who this post is referring to. God I hope they still read this.
