Get the I just want to be friends mug.
The worst thing a person can say to a person after theyve broken up with them, why the hell would they actually want to be friends they wouldnt have gone out with you if they wanted to be your friend. I just want to be friends(meaning i want to be able to talk to you and for you to pretend that your talking to me as a friend with no sexual emotions attached)

It means you are nice enough to talk to and caring enough to confide in, but you are just to ugly,fat or broke to date them. You are expected to pretend you don't like the person when they say this.
This guy is really nice but he is just not good looking enough for other people to see us together so I told him " I just want to be friends ".
