look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
when you fall in love with someone, say your best friend, and it doesn't work out because you're her "Friend". to her, you're just friends.
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, you're a great guy, but I don't 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 to 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 doesn't work out, we'll 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.

"Lets just be friends"....Translation: "I don't just want you to mourn the loss; I want to remind you of it every day. I want you to suffer. I want you to envy. I want you to die slowly, a bit at a time. And I want you to smile and thank me for it."
Guy: I love you hun!

Girl: Me to ^_^

*five minutes later*

Girl: I think we need to get to know each other better, lets just be friends

Guy: Just Friends? *dismay*
