I would happily ignore everyone I do not wish to interact with, but the problem starts when the first step towards friendship is accidentally taken. A really good drunken conversation, a really good facebook chat conversation (in The Blank Canvas' case), a really good random conversation. Then you must keep this friendship up. There is no turning back, it has started. I am beyond terrible at keeping the friendship up. A failed friendship is worse than nothing, because it hangs there in the air. I used to have this theory that if you acknowledged the person in the corridor within a few days of the event then all was fine, pressure was off. Well, it's not.
