So just what do you do when you find yourself meeting with a person who is just a friend — and has a boyfriend — but you find out that there may be more to the whole thing than just friendship? Or in my case, when grabbing a cup of coffee turns into a 4 hour hangout at various diners around town where we shared vulnerable stories and told each other how happy we make each other??
Truth is, I DON’T KNOW! I have NEVER been one to interfere with someone’s relationship. It’s beneath me to move in on some poor, unknowing guy and try to take the one person that might make him the happiest. But on the other hand, I’ve never been in this situation, this girl excites me to no end, and my inner high schooler is telling me to go for it.
To add one more thing to the mix, we’ve always had a thing for each other but I was too timid to make a move. We had both recently been out of relationships and I never like to rush from one into another. However, this time someone moved in before I could and she and I both hate me a little bit for having such terrible timing.
What will happen? Ugh, hell if I know! But for now I’m going to be a good guy, hope the current dude is just a rebound, and realize I need to be a bit more assertive when my gut tells me to.
For now I’m going to work on my timing.
