So I’m going to make up a new term for certain type of friendships. I’m going to call them placeholder friends
Just like in mathematics the number zero is a place holder number it exists but has no value it’s just there to look pretty
Place holder friends are the same way they are there to fill the gaps, but would I go on adventures with them randomly and talk about that time in middle school when…
Or even speak to them other to remind myself of how many “friends” I have, probably wouldn’t. But they aren’t exactly acquaintances either because they know me a little better than most people so they kind of get grandfathered into the friend category
However there’s a lot of them, so now I’m referring them as placeholder friends, for lack of a better term
The best way to get to know a person is not by what they say about themselves, but what they say about the world, people and everything else. So if you want to get to know me there is no better way than just simply reading my work. It’s the window to my soul.
