    i'm sorry munchies sometimes you have to just take it as a lesson and move on. it hurts though, i know. but you don't deserve it, no one does. good luck.

    Right now, I'm in the process of "disconnecting" myself from all of my friends, that might be harder for an E though.

    I hear those who matter supposedly "leave footprints behind".

    Stab wounds? I don't think so.

    I don't think of people in terms of friends. People have individual names and react in their own way to us, and us to them. If you have a friend, you can lose a friend or feel as if someone that was close to you has stabbed you in the back. See that this person never was riding you, or any degree of yours to begin with. That they, like you, all want something out of life, and have not exchanged any vows of companionship nor loyalty to each other or for a cause. These are facts. I'm not trying to discourage you from getting close to people, but rather, encourage you to realize that they were never truly knife wielding warriors inherently, or otherwise solely on your side.

    React accordingly to how they have reacted to you, though I wouldn't blow it up and distrust everyone on the same level you apply distrust to those who have shown a reason to be distrusted.

    Speaking purely MBTI:

    ENTPs; We make the best friends. Why? Because we're honest and blunt about it. We're either loyal and helpful. Having your back in any situation, or you're our enemy/pawn. So with us you're either our friend or not our friend, and trust me, and I know you know too munchies, we'll tell you if you're our friend. Hell, we'd probably tell you if you're our pawn if you ask.

    So basically what I'm trying to say is that ENTPs make the best friends and the best enemies, and if you're our friends than you don't have to worry about us stabbing you in the back, unless you do something to severally piss us off.

    Now, Munchies, it is awesome having ENTP friends but being you're an ENTP sometimes you want other types of friends. INTPs are one of the least likely types to stab you in the back, and another blunt type. INTJs will stab you in the back, but they'll make sure to leave clues out so you know its coming. ENTJs are ... well they make good friends. They will stab you in the front for power, but they will have your back in any other situation. Non-NT? ISTPs are pretty loyal. ISFPs make good friends. INFPs, if you can suffer them, make good friends due to their super righteousness. NFJs are pretty good too. I'd avoid SJs, ESTPs, ENFPs, Some NTJs, and ESFPs.

    thanks for the info, i agree with the last part, except for the ENFP part, although i think one of my older friends was an enfp and he stole my guitar.. so yeh, i think ill take that back. I've always wanted an INTP or an ENTJ since they would make great companions.


    And the first two paragrapghs are very true, which makes me wonder why everyone is fucking me. Meh, plenty of fish in the sea. But fist i think i might act like the backstabbers friends for a bit longer so i can fry the shit out of these fish and then eat them, or should i eat them alive.. hmm (all in medaphores of course)
