A woman has a close male friend- This means that he is probably interested in
her, which is why he hangs around so much, She sees him strictly as a friend.
This always starts out with, yeu' re a great guy, but I dent like you in that way.
This is roughly the equivalent for the guy of going to a job interview and the
company saying, You have a great resume, you have all the qualifications we are
looking for, but we' re not going he hire you- We will, however, use your resume
as the basis for comparison for all other applicants- But, we' re going to hire
somebody who is far less qualified and is probably an alcoholic, And if he
deosn' t. work out, wall hire somebody else, but still not you, In fact, we will
never hire you. But we will call you from time to time to complain about the
person that we hired.
