What does the term "My Friend" mean?
Often we read from people saying, MY FRIEND when it is nothing more than name dropping. How many emails do we received which says, My Friend [fill in the name] is selling a product, and you know the person isn't their friend, they are just an affiliate.
We can have business partners, but what is a friend?
A friend to me is someone I have a relationship with, someone who I would have no problems calling them on the phone, and meeting them for coffee or dinner. They wouldn't be someone I vaguely know, or have a business relationship with.
I know Allen Says, but to call him a friend would be going beyond any relationship we have. Sorry, Allen but had to use you as an example, and think you would understand what I mean.
I have a number of people I know online but wouldn't call them friends, because that isn't the relationship we have.
Yet people use the term which is why people don't believe what they read.
It's a lie to say my friend, and then to write what they had said without any permission or right.
A friend would ask, and tell you what they are doing.
Getting press on the coat tails of someone you know vaguely is one thing, calling them a friend when you don't treat them as a friend is, well I let you fill in the blank.
Thank goodness for Google Alerts they are more of a friend because they tell you will is happening.
