look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
1. Deriving pleasure from the pain of a friendship that you wish was something more.

2. Protecting a friendship by not making a move despite having feelings for the other party involved.

3. Attempting to remain friends with a person that broke up with you, knowing full well it will destroy you.
