He's a classmate. I find it easy to trust him and it's really easy to open up to him. We have an easier time chatting through msn and that's where how we became friends? We're not exactly friends now but we're somewhat closer than acquaintances. When we talk on the phone or when we actually meet, there seems to be nothing to talk about. And, I am not very expressive and neither is he, I guess that's why we have a tendency to jsut talk about things and matters around us. We're taking the same course now and we need to come up with arguments. I thought we would work together, but it turned out that neither of us is interested in another's arguments. We work on our own largely.
The way I see it is, if we don't chat online, we won't ever become friends. Like I said, the only time we seem to be able to relax and chat is online. And he can be real blunt but I understand and I dont' find things he says offensive. But I can imagine how those words might come across to others.
So, what do the relation is?
