Fly Like An Eagle, #383


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:

Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!

  1. Julie ,
    Im sorry to say that you are not going to be happy with my response. But in no way am I being critical rather I do not agree with you. To me it is interfering and breaking up a relationship. By doing that it does pave the way to break the relationship. My father had an affair with my mother’s best friend and then she became my stepmom and then he had an affair on her. To me with the intent on introducing your friend because you want her to be with him is essentially the same thing. Thats great that it worked out for you in that same matter but it would be different if your friend met this guy on her own and then if it didnt work out with his current mate , he wanted her later or something like that. Again not being critical and when you open a topic like this sorry to say not everybody is going to agree and Im certainly one of those who doesnt agree.

    • You’re entitled to your opinion, but you don’t know my friend, and she is a kind hearted and lovely person who is not interested in harming anyone. These are YOUR past experiences, and just because there was something bad for you, doesn’t mean it will have the same result here. You are, in fact, being critical, but that is ok. And btw…they did meet on they’re own. I just reintrodiced them by the request of my friend. Don’t be too quick to judge without knowing all the details.

  2. Julie ,
    Again I dont see how giving my honest opinion is being critical or judgemental. Yes my PAST experiences may have a point to how i feel but thats not the only reason I have that opinion. My sole basis for my OPINION is that you WANT them together and he is already taken. I have not said one thing judgemental or critical in any negative way just replied to a post as an honest adult with an OPINION , I think you are being to quick to JUDGE what I said and maybe have a tad bit of guilt already knowing you are going to face JUDGEMENT or criticism.Neither of which came out of what I said. I dont know your friend or the facts and I dont want to know them either , It is MY opinion that it is wrong regardless to intentianally want people together or to try to put people together if someone is already committed to somebody else.Period.

  3. Opinions are just opinions. I know one thing for sure, you do not have (nor should you have) any guilt for doing something kind for your friend. I know there is no close relationship for the friend you spoke of and there is an old saying, Beshert, which means “meant to be”. That holds a place in my opinion, and if it wasn’t for our mutual friend introducing us years ago, YES, when I had a girlfriend, I may of never had my real Beshert. Keep doing what your doing, You are kindhearted and always thinking about helping others, one of the things I love about you 🙂
