A friend of mine is interested in a guy who has a girlfriend. They’re happy in their relationship, but the way I see it is that there’s no reason why my friend can’t still get to know the guy. I have this imaginary future relationship mapped out on my head:
Six months or a year from now, my friend’s romantic interest breaks up with his girlfriend. He’s sitting home alone on a Saturday night feeling lonely and needing a breather from the world. He gets on a computer and starts chatting with a friend on Facebook and notices that his Facebook chatter friend is friends with someone who looks familiar. “I know this girl,” he thinks and decides to send her a friend request. She accepts, and the rest is history. They have a bright and happy future together.
When I met my husband, he had a girlfriend, too. Of course, we didn’t date right away, but after our initial meeting, the chemistry was there. When our mutual friend discovered months later that he had broken up with the girl, he handed my husband my phone number. Of course, my beautiful but disorganized man lost my phone number, and our first date didn’t happen for weeks after that. When it did though, it was perfect, and we were never apart again.
So please don’t be critical of me for introducing a friend to a guy with a girlfriend. I don’t believe in breaking up relationships. I’m just paving the way for the future and can sense a little chemistry there.
My song for the day is Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like An Eagle,” because of the line “time keeps on slipping into the future,” and I feel that it really sums up this situation. My friend should “fly like an eagle,” and find all the happiness she can a long the way. Check out the song on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1f7eZ8cHpM
