    I think he is saying that when someone specifically tells you that they like you as a friend, they mean they like you in a non-romantic sense. Yes, these feelings can change over time, but, that's what saying you like someone as a friend means.

    I say it be "Trial Of A [Chat] Lord". But that's because I'm watching Trial Of A Time Lord on DVD.

    Not at work, obviously.

    Or it means that they don't like you at all and they don't want to be your friend anymore and really they're just saying it to spare your feelings.

    In my mind, liking someone as a friend just means you like them for who they are, and is completely orthogonal to how sexually attracted you are to that person. I would say that I like my boyfriend as a friend too, because he's my best friend. But I know people use "like as a friend" to refer to having purely Platonic feelings, so I don't really think any conclusions can be drawn from that one phrase alone.

    Wait, what?

    The part after the However I read to mean that liking a person both as a friend and as a romantic interest couldn't coexist. I could have misinterpreted it however.

    She cheated on him, and doesn't want to hurt his feelings, but she 'likes him as a friend.'

    Yes, there's always the chance that she prescribes to a more unorthodox definition of 'friend' in that phrase, but do you really think so?

    I'm absolute best friends with my girlfriend, too. And we were friends before we went out. And before we were going out, know how I liked her? As a friend.

    But I was also attracted to her, and it seems very reasonably obvious that in this context she means she's not attracted to him anymore.

    That, my dear, is begging the question.

    You're assuming the premise that there are, in fact, better men than I.

    Maybe I should just start numbering every line in my post, because really that's what I'm doing mentally, and I only just realized it. I do it so often, I don't know how I didn't even realize it until just now. I constantly do that, set up line by line premises building on each other. Weird to only see it now...

    In fact, I've found my way to your side, and I'm straddling your thigh. Both my hands are wandering in tandem now, one in front. One in back.

    As my left hand glides smoothly over your nubile happy-trail, my right hand just begins to find the insignificant incline that is the beginning of your posterior.

    I find myself unimpressed with your piece, but I shield my smile in your shoulder, which you misinterpret as a surprised love quiver

    I want to back away, but you've already go that look in your eye, and it's too late.

    Oh hey, that's nifty. MMPI-A is one of the actual useful ones. I forget which one everyone usually does, but I remember it was mostly BS. MMPI-A is actually used for psychiatric evaluation instead of just wankery.

    Also, not ever having played a SOCOM game before, I bought SOCOM 3 for seven dollars. So far, what I have learned from this game is that Navy SEALs can't hold their breath for more than thirty seconds, and the M16 is a pea-shooter. Really, on the first mission, I found that I was shooting guys with a three-round-burst, and they would go down, and then get up again and I'd have to shoot them again. And then I'd repeat that like two or three times before they'd stay down. Eventually I just ditched it and grabbed one of their AK-47's. That thing puts guys down.
