"See anything interesting that I've missed?"

Yes, you're applying cognitive rationalisation to an emotional response.

Word it the other way around: "How many of your 'friends' do you wish would go away and never return because they are stifling you from forming stronger friendships with others?"

Finally: The definition...
To me: "friends" are invaluable and "mates" are people I like
To a (once) close friend of mine: "mates" are invaluable and "friends" are people he likes
...No, I *didn't* just make that up to have something to say ...yes, I am bored

It's not that I wish any of my existing friendships would die. The context is usually a date or potential date that never panned out. We decide there isn't anything there, but the girl still wants to be friends because "you can never have too many friends"... and some girls really don't get the concept that yes you can...

If I have free time I'd rather be spending it with existing friends, potentially dating someone else, or maybe reading a good book rather than talking to a someone I have no interest in... so this also connects back around to the "do you stay friends after dating someone" stat...

can you please do Ch.15-20 for The Odysse.

I don't think it's really possible to have more than 15-20 friends. If I only spend an hour a month with someone, I usually don't consider them a friend... they're an acquaintance.

Hello Josh. Sorry by that question, could please tell me, which library do you use to indent and color source codes? I just wanted to do same thing when I post some parts of my code at my site or blog. (I use ruby mainly)

"but the girl still wants to be friends because 'you can never have too many friends'... and some girls really don't get the concept that yes you can..."

ah, the plot thickens. if i were told that after dating, i would interpret it as "no harm in trying to still be friends". as in, let's keep investing time in each other until we find something better to spend the time on.

"rather than talking to a someone I have no interest in..."

you seem to want to say, "i would be friends with you, except then i will run out of time for my other friends and the rest of my life." i think it's more to the point to say "i don't want to be friends with you."
