It depends. Trying to be friends with a woman you like but who doesn’t like you back? Waste of time and torture. Don’t ever accept such a deal. I can be friends with women but only if they’re dating or married to one of my friends. Other than that my experience with women friends had been terrible. They make you do relationship responsibilities without getting relationship benefits. It’s just their nature I guess. Now, guys I easily make friends with. I have several guy friends I’ve been friends with for over 30 years.

From my notes.

FRIENDSHIP is a mirror to presence and a testament to forgiveness. Friendship not only helps us see ourselves through another’s eyes, but can be sustained over the years only with someone who has repeatedly forgiven us for our trespasses as we must find it in ourselves to forgive them in turn. A friend knows our difficulties and shadows and remains in sight, a companion to our vulnerabilities more than our triumphs, when we are under the strange illusion we do not need them. An undercurrent of real friendship is a blessing exactly because its elemental form is rediscovered again and again through understanding and mercy. All friendships of any length are based on a continued, mutual forgiveness. Without tolerance and mercy all friendships die.

friendship is above all the art of allowing the soft light of love to fall upon even our darkest sides

the ultimate touchstone of friendship is witness, the privilege of having been seen by someone and the equal privilege of being granted the sight of the essence of another, to have walked with them and to have believed in them, and sometimes just to have accompanied them for however brief a span, on a journey impossible to accomplish alone.

friendship helps us “make sense of heartbreak and unrequited love”

HEARTBREAK is unpreventable; the natural outcome of caring for people and things over which we have no control…


“The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love—whether we call it friendship or family or romance—is the work of mirroring and magnifying each other’s light. Gentle work. Steadfast work. Life-saving work in those moments when life and shame and sorrow occlude our own light from our view, but there is still a clear-eyed loving person to beam it back. In our best moments, we are that person for another.”

Khalil Gibran on friendship:

And a youth said, Speak to us of Friendship.
And he answered, saying:
Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.

When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the “nay” in your own mind, nor do you withhold the “ay.”
And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery us not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.

And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.​

If you need someone to fill a spot on board game night single chicks are always down... especially if you've got more guys than girls. Also you'll get invited to way more parties if you're the guy that knows all the chicks. We used to bring 8 or 9 girls with us to the nightclubs that were all students of mine. Sometimes the owner would even give our table free drinks and snacks. It's easier to work a room where you know half the clientele and those wallflowers are going to be hanging off you when they get nervous. It's your job to make everyone feel special. It's a win win.

Imagine going to play Catan with a bunch of good looking broads that are DTF. I've done this a few times in nightclubs with UNO. People always want to join a crowd that is yelling and having fun. Girls want the guy that other girls like and dudes want to be their friend, this is the way.


Do not subscribe to The SoSuave Newsletter unless you are already a chick magnet!

The information in each issue of The SoSuave Newsletter is too powerful for most guys to handle. If you are an ordinary guy, it is not for you. It is meant for the elite few. Not the unwashed masses.

If you know you can handle it...

If you already have girls calling you at all hours of the day and night, showing up at your door, throwing themselves at you everywhere you go...

Then sign up below.

But if you're just an average Joe, an ordinary guy, no one special – then skip this. It is not for you.

The only chicks I'm friends with I have banged in the past, I don't have any platonic female friends outside a couple from school days, who are friends with chicks I've banged that I'm closer with.
