Another close friend I have known since about the same age as her was recently fired. At the same time, she is in a relationship with a man who is separated from his wife of 12 years – and children.
Though we have always known each other, we have not spent much time alone together; I mostly saw her when spending time with her family. As all of these things are happening, she seems to have a desire to grow closer to me – which suits me just fine. She has a wonderful soul. And I make her laugh. A lot.
And anybody that appreciates
the oddity that is Me
is okay in my book–
I give her the advice that I can, though, maybe I am unqualified. She says she has been in this spoken relationship with this man for nearly a year, though they only see each other once a month. He has told her he loves her and wants this to last forever while, in the same breathe, does not want a relationship. She waits and pines.
I don’t want to tell her to forget Him, though I do wish she would go out and “do Her.” She is afraid that he might “get the wrong idea.” I think He deserves a kick in the @ss – but that’s just me. And a 12 year marriage – even failing – is a hard Beast to penetrate.
