SLI here. He's my best friend because he's nice, fun and easy to talk with - very smart - but sometimes he gets on my nerves. He:
- was invited to my mum's funeral, but couldn't come because "he had to study". He spent that day reading manga at home.
- mocks/scoffs at anything he doesn't understand: "dude, no wonder you oversleep when you're up all night [ignoring the fact that I'm depressed and have trouble sleeping, which he should know]"; "*scoff*, why do people always write R.I.P. on YouTube videos of dead people who are moderately interesting?"
- is really set in his ways. Seems to think his opinions, logic and reasoning are perfect. Most people are stupid.
- is terrified of the thought that others might think he's wrong/ignorant about something. Is very quick to point out, "I know that", even when it's not even remotely implied that one is trying to teach him something - just pointing out facts to steer the conversation.
Again, he's a good friend despite these, really, small nitpicks. I just need a break from his very opinionated chattering sometimes. Our relationship seems to perfectly fit Wikisocion's semi-duality description.
Any points of view on the matter?
