Superficial, Mysterious, Congenial - That's What Friends Are Really For

This friend would always be mysterious!
Popular opinion about what friendship means:  Someone who will always be on your side, or always be honest, or always be interested in visiting with you, at the very least.  A Friend with a capital F knows you better than anyone else does, and likes you anyway.

But how much energy does it take to sustain friendships like that?

My husband has a theory about why friendships dissolve.  People try to be sincere and leave off their superficial facade one too many times, and POOF!

So, just accept the facade and don't try to see past it.  Put one on yourself. It's the best way to preserve relationships, if that's your goal.
