... gma 7: frenemies in the philippines ... (life coach, counselor, psychotherapist, clinical psychologist, psychiatrist, osteopath, quezon city, manila)

ms. kara david of gma news asked me to define what a "frenemy" is.

a "frenemy" in common usage is pejoratively construed as a "two-faced person," "fake buddy," or "plastik na tao."

"frenemy" can mean any of the following:

- a person who you have a love-hate relationship with,

- a true friend with whom you engage in some friendly competition,

- a backstabber who acts friendly towards you,

- a rival who you relate to in a friendly manner, or

- a person with whom you harbor ill feelings but relate to in a friendly manner.

kara david, my friend ... NOT frenemy!
