Today’s post comes from one of our commenters, J Money. Enjoy!
I was in a relationship and my girl was friends with this guy. They were cool, no extensive hanging out or phone conversations. Naturally being a man I was not easy with it nonetheless. She said she would never look at him like that. We break-up and after a year or so she is with that guy in a relationship. So I wonder was he buying his time waiting on something to happen? We were on and off sometimes but you know how it is when you are young. A break-up most times is really not the first or the last. That is until you get older and the standards are raised along with your patience and tolerance decreasing.
We have all had someone of the opposite sex who is a friend. You were either involved in some capacity and it ended thus becoming friends or you met as mutual friends. They are a really cool person. Ya’ll talk every once in awhile and they are a truly good friend. They have made comments before about the two of you getting together on another level or maybe back together. You dismiss them as them being silly or you’re just not interested. However you know deep down if you say there is a vacancy in the hotel, they will be first to make a reservation. Then you get into a relationship. They respect it but they can’t help the fact that they want it to be them. Now no one wants to cut off friends when they have done nothing to disrespect your relationship. And we all want the trust of our significant other as well.
So my questions to the Fellas is have you ever had a female friend that you thought if she broke up with ole dude I would submit my application? To the Ladies have you had or have a male friend who you know would apply if you were available? The ultimate question is: Do you dismiss this friend if you enter into a relationship because you know they have an interest in you?
