"I'm not here to make friends."

"I'm not here to make friends" is usually code for "I am here to act out my personality disorder and things are going to get ugly as I act in a selfish and rude manner."

I think it might be a defensive position that you take once you see that people don't like you.

I come here for the boom boom. There has not been a lot of the boom boom. I want more of the boom boom.

Thanks for sharing...

I'm here to make friends for my blog.

That and the "boom boom," whatever that is.

Yo I come for the mad bitches. Where they at?

Oddly enough, the very first person ever to say “I’m not here to make friends” was Bette Midler.

Excuse me. Could someone tell me if I'm in the right room? I'm here to download Friends?

At one point in the video, the response, "That's because you're fearful," to "I'm not here to make friends," is spot on.

To make a friend you have to be a friend first. That is what dear
Johann Schmidt used to say.

Baron Zemo said...

Perhaps it was to make a fiend you had to be a fiend first. Yes that was what he used to say.

I only make friends in high places.

Cheers,

Sounds like some of these folks could use a nice bowl of twiggy, fibery cereal.

TMink said...

It may be a defensive position, but it is likely a personality disordered defensive position! Seriously, how many healthy and kind people have you heard say that and how many people who you have heard say that were enormous flakes?

Baron--what's that on your head? A sock? No wonder you can't make friends.

I think, at some point, I'd be worried about sound like a big ol' cliché. I'd have to come up with something else.

"I'm here to make friends. I find them easier to exploit."

Someone needs to step up to the plate.

That was fun!

OH, that awful Amy Pepper. I hate her.

Those little gaybots from the Amazing Race were hilarious. I've never watched that show.

I find life is a lot better with friends, though I've not really lived my life being friendless, so perhaps I'm speaking out of turn.

It's possible I didn't have friends before the age of about 2, but then again I don't remember anything before then and also I was likely very drooly and smelly (if my two babies are an indicator at least).

I've always had a dog. Dogs tend to be your friend no matter what. That's why the got the 'man's best friend' trademark...that or they just have good PR people.

I've always loved James Taylor's 'You've Got A Friend'...really pretty song.

Being friends is kind of a mutual thing, which makes it sort of democratic I guess...otherwise a one-sided friendship can lead to stalkerville.

I could go for a milkshake from a Friendly's right now but we don't have them in Canada :(

If the enemy of my enemy is my friend, why isn't the friend of my friend my enemy???

That said, after at least two seasons, I still don't understand why sentient women older than, say, nine years old go on as contestants on Flavor of Love.

Ann, do you have the answer?
