What do you think of the term "frenemy"?

Do you use that term? Do you consider anyone you know to be one? Just curious. =]

I saw this term the other day and, though it actually describes a couple people I know, I don't use it.

  • Lol....I think I had the same frenemy as Cassie. Same exact situation, we were good friends for a while until I realized she really wasn't my friend at all and I realized she was a frenemy and now she is nothing to to me.

  • In my eyes you are either a friend or and enemy, not both. So I never have used that word for anyone I know.

  • I never heard of it before and had to look it up, nor have I ever used it nor will I; I am not this way because I am a firm believer you are either a friend or an enemy you cannot be both

  • I understand the word...I just don't have one of them in my life. - much less drama and less complicated for me.
