  • Enemies close. So I know if they are going to stab me in the back.

  • I have no desire to have "enemies" anywhere near me. Why in the world would I want people who I don't like and who don't like me around me or be in my thoughts? I have more important things to think/worry about than if some stupid twit is trying to start drama with me. If I don't allow them in my life or in my thoughts than they can't do anything to me that matters. They can't backstab me because they are nowhere near me and they can talk about me all they want...I am the one with the power on if I allow it to affect me.

  • No. Enemies are unfriended ASAP. And then I might drink some wine and try to refriend them, but then I sober up and get all "Holy shit, I'm a dumbass," and delete the friend request.

  • Friends closer because I can do without the hate and drama that enemies bring, they will stab you in the back no matter if you keep them close or not so why allow them to be in your life causing you hurt, pain and drama, I kick them to the curb.

  • I believe in having NO enemies at all. If someone doesn't like me, or if I don't like someone, then they are gone...why keep that negativity in my life?
    If there is someone out there who wants to hurt me then I have no idea about it.

  • I do believe in having your friends close and your enemies closer.
    This works great in the workplace.

  • The last thing I want is to have a lot of contact with my enemies. Screw that!

    Answer by SWasson at 9:56 AM on Dec. 12, 2012

  • I don't really have any enemies, but even if I did I can't imagine hanging out with them or any other form of 'keeping them closer'. If I don't like someone, I don't want to be around them. If I don't trust someone, I cut ties.

  • No I am not a Gangster like Tony Soprano. I have no enemies & when I did work if I had a problem with a coworker, I would confront them about the issue or simply ignore them. I have no room in my life or the energy for drama. I have more important things to do.
