"How dare you say I don't have great consideration for friendship!  LOL and all that. I would think more that panties were in a twist in this situation with a good friend than with a casual friend.  After all a Good Friend should make…"

Penelope replied to David's discussion Should I talk to my (male) friend?
"A friend posted this elsewhere. It was so apropos, I thought I'd post it here. "Most of the inconveniences that make men swear or women cry are really sentimental or imaginative inconveniences - things altogether of the mind. For instance,…"

"Ok, I'm an callous unthinking person who has no real understanding of the word "loyalty". But in the end it doesn't matter a damn what we think it only matters what the OP and his friend think.  I gave a possible scenario;…"

Eugene replied to David's discussion Should I talk to my (male) friend?
"Dave, I think you'll get a wide variety of opinions here, evident by the "more recent" conversations. I think these differences in opinions is largely due to how the men here consider friendship. If this were just a casual friend from…"

"Well, without knowing specifics, we can't exactly say what happened. But my reading of what happened at the bachelor party was that Dave was there as a friend, and didn't drag the party down. The thing Dave said that bugged me the most…"

"I'm also inclined to agree with Rick on this.  The writer was somewhere he didn't want to be ... and it showed enough to make the guest of honor uncomfortable that he wasn't having a good time.  It wasn't about your…"

Rick Shelton replied to David's discussion Should I talk to my (male) friend?
"Neither comment disagreed with the other, one was about fear of talking about emotions (response to a response) the other was a response to the OP.  I believe his friend was upset because he wanted some attention from his friend and his friend…"

Russell Allan replied to David's discussion Should I talk to my (male) friend?
"This is the most idiotic answer ever. Ignore Rick. I don't think anyone would say that you (Dave) screwed up, since you were the one being the friend and sticking around -- in fact, the only friend as you wrote. That makes you the better friend…"
