“No matter how hard you try, you will never be ‘one of the guys,’ so don’t take it personally if you don’t get invited to some things.”
Despite our desperate attempts to recreate the things we see in Hollywood, we are never going to be in a successful relationship if we keep expecting our partners to just get everything that’s going on in our heads without us having to say it.
Who are we trying to protect here? The person on the receiving end? Or our own undeserving egos?

You often use the term “bff” to describe them. They have never used those words to describe you.
