Long story medium, I used to be involved with a guy who wound up having a girlfriend the entire time. What a plot twist, am I right?
Following the news, a lot of my anger and frustration were directed towards him, but at one point, I had to park the car and put it in reverse and reexamine the situation.
I was friends with his friends long before I met him — why didn’t they do anything to help fix this terrible situation?
I took many normal things into consideration:
- They were closer to him – both in friendship and in proximity.
- They knew the girlfriend.
I knew these factors could be put into play, and I accepted it for what it was worth.
After months had passed, I ran into one of our mutual friends at one of those “electronic dance music gatherings.” As the music took over and I was hit with the feels, I beckoned for the friend and whispered into his ear aka I screamed over the bass and it was still 250% inaudible.
Hey, how come you never advised your boy not to be such a shady fucker? Didn’t you feel bad for me or for his girlfriend or even for his future karma points?! I was honestly kind of upset at you but I got over it and just became more curious as to why you didn’t try to help your friend do the right thing…
Even in my ecstatic state of mind, I was still able to think realistically, already expecting an answer centered around the normal things I had taken into consideration previously. However, he answered:
I can’t tell him what to do; he’s an adult and can make his own decisions.
*Cue the tires screeching*
