bostonguy: I will never understand why women often hate each other so much. Guys don't have "frenemies."

Farkettes, care to help?


Guys absolutely have frenemies.

Sometimes they use the word "competitors" or political adversaries, but yeah, that word absolutely applies in situations with dudes

When you're like 18-24 with your largest friend group, there is usually at least one dude you never hang out with solo because you don't actually like him.

Nurglitch: It's funny, of my friend group from that time the only one I'm still in contact with, and rather good friends with (only one invited to and attending my wedding) was the guy I had wished would be hit by a car or something. I somehow fell out of friendship with the rest and became friends with him. Life is funny sometimes.


My best friend from college and my twenties (met when he was my roommate freshman year) no longer speaks to me. The first straw was when I moved to Israel -- had had always been very pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel. The final straw was when he became an alcoholic and cheated on his wife (a mutual friend in our circle in college) with his secretary and then left her. He pretty much cut ties with our whole friend group.

Yeah, it's sad how life changes people after your twenties. Maybe they should make a show about being in your thirties or something. Nah, forget it -- such a show would be depressing. And probably set in Philly.

I still don't get the idea of a frenemy.

That person you work with who seems cool, but it's your job to push back on their requests? That's a coworker. Working with them doesn't make them your friend, and being in the position to say 'no' to them doesn't make them your enemy.

The person in your group of friends who you'd never hang with solo is an acquaintance. Not everyone has to be a friend or an enemy.

Though I will say I'm warming up to the idea of 'hate watching'. I never understood watching a show or movie you didn't like, until mrs mcmnky started watching ST Discovery. Omg, so bad. But I prefer she watch it while I'm there just to see how bad it gets.

Send her back a pic of yourself, on your knees, with a dildo in front of your face and whipped cream on your mouth. What happens, happens.

Nope. Frenemy implies at least partial friendly association.

cryinoutloud: A year ago, I came to see what the term "hate fark" meant. Jesus, what a spoiled rich oblivious asshole. And hot. Clearly he was my superior.

We got in a big screaming fight one day and he fired me.


And did you... you know? After you were fired it didn't break any workplace rules.

Had one for years.  I ran graveyard shift operations, he was a project manager that wanted his shiat prioritized.  (Often with a fair reason, but he didn't know what was going on with overall transmission and the needs of the whole operation.)  Not agreeing with one another was part of our job duties.  Dude was cool, but our work priorities were not only opposed, but designed to be opposed.  Some interesting arguments to say the least.
