Ok, so there's this dearest friend of mine, we're both studying at acting school and want to direct movies too. We're always exchanging movies or books to get ideas, to learn stuff.
two weeks ago I go to his place, he lends me a book, saying "you should read this. When I did I thought it'd be a kick ass movie." I warn him I'm quite busy at the moment and will read it when I have time, he says OK.
He asks me if I read it last week, told him I still hadn't,and today he was mad at me saying : "haven't you read it yet? You very well know how I'm craving for your opinion and you can't find a couple of hours to read the f*****g booK?"
but : no I don't know he "craves" for my opinion, he never tells me how much he cares about it, never tells me how much he cares about me either as a matter of fact. Yes our friendship is ambiguous, but why does he have that bad habit to lessen the need he has of me and my opinion, while boasting about the need I have of HIS opinion and himself? shouldn't it be 50/50?

Some men worry that saying he needs someone, will be seen by others as a sign of weakness. Those men are actually correct. People do often judge a great deal of a man's worth on being able to stand on his own two feet. We are not only suppose to be able to take care of ourselves, but also our families as well. A lot of people can not handle the pressure of being needed, so in order to excuse their own fear, claim the man is too needy and falsely judge him as weak. That way they are free to abandon him in his hour of need without feeling guilty about it.0
