“Three guns and one goes off
One’s empty, one’s not quick enough
One burn, one red, one grin
Search the graves while the camera spins…”
We’ve all seen it happen, some of us have been part of it.
Yes, generally it make sense for friends (whom afterall are friends because they have a number of things in common) to gravitate towards the same kind of people as far as forming romantic relationships, yet as friends it is also important to make boundaries and respect each other in those regards but sometimes those boundaries are broken and you find people dating their friend’s ex(es)…
“…Triangles are my favourite shape
Three points where two lines meet
Toe to toe
back to back
Lets go my love, it’s very late…”
Though the intentions aren’t always clear, in some cases the ex may pursue their ex’s friend(s) in hopes of making the ex jealous… sometimes (as they say) it “just happened/s”. Yes ladies and gentlemen, this is where having a “type” gets dangerous.
Does this now mean that since your ex’s friends have similar qualities as the ex, someone you fell in love with deem them (the friends) your type?
Does this now mean you have to go through all of them to find the right one? Yea it may make sense to the doer but it’s not a good look to the rest of us judges of the world… Watch us as we slowly shake our heads in judgment.
In closing, us human beings are copy cats by nature, we all carry the follow the leader mentality. With that said, we can’t help but see people how the people closest to them portray them. This is why I always say you can’t expect your lover to fully respect your family especially your parents if you don’t speak of them as if they’re royalty. Likewise you can’t expect the people around you to respect your lover if in their presence you refer to her as a whore or him a dick.
If you bad mouth him or her in front of your friends, to the frisky kind of friend it can be received as a free for all invite… A cheap piece of human they can mess with… Whether them being a whore is true or not, they’ll find themselves victim to the wrong kind of attention… As heartbreak bites and devours them a million times over…
“Bite chunks out of me
You’re a shark and I’m swimming
My heart still thumps as I bleed
And all your friends come sniffing”
