Women ( bless'em) have some wonderful phrases. And use them often. Some, like " I really, really like you, but if we had sex would change everything, could ruin our friendship" are bizarre, or the old " You are my best friend, and just like a brother to me" Not that it has ever been said to me, naturally! Why can't the be honest and say " 'k off you fat bugger, you are 'orrible". Not that that has ever happened to me either, naturally.
