I have a theory about friendships. There are two types of friends in our lives: priority friends and obligation friends. Priority friends are the friends you want to hang out with. Obligation friends are the friends you feel obligated to hang out with. (Technically, there’s a third category…”new friends”…but this category goes away after the 10th time hanging out with someone)
For example, friends you go out and party with…priority friends. Your work friends…obligation friends. Friends you see or call on their birthday…priority friends. Friends you text or Facebook on their birthday…obligation friends. Friends you have over for Sunday dinner…priority friends. High school buds you see once a year…obligation friends. You see where I’m going with this.
But here’s where it gets tricky…how do you know when you’re no longer a “priority” friend and have fallen into “obligation” friend status? It’s easy. It’s called the TV conversation. If you’re hanging out with someone…and you run out of things to say…and you start talking about TV shows, that’s a red flag. Now, I’m not talking about when people say…hey, did you see that great episode of Lost last night? That’s implies familiarity. What I’m talking about…is when you ask someone (or they ask you)…so, you watching any good shows? (works for movies too…except in Oscar season) If the best conversation you can have with someone is finding out what shows they watch and like…then you obviously aren’t very close with this person anymore. Cut your losses…and get out while you can.
