If it’s okay, let me explain a few things about your best friend.
In the way years run, he’s five years younger than you. He also has the personality type that I bulldoze (Trust me, I know these things about myself). I actually have someone picked out for him (because I have issues with setting people up, which God is attempting to work with me on). But I’ll keep that fact to myself.
The best part to me is that you both care a lot about each other. I know two other best friends like this. If they both like the same girl, they just laugh it off, and no harm done. It’s cool to watch, and reassures me that there’s some good in the world. Especially after that stupid experience with all those “guy friends” at that one church, you need to see some good in the world. I actually saw one of those guys a few years later, at a wedding. He smiled at me, and I was like, “Nuh uh.” Can’t respect a guy who can’t make decisions.
This is another of my worst nightmares, actually. Situations that are drama-prone. I hate dealing with this sort of navigation. Hate, hate, hate it. This also goes to show I like you a lot, because I usually like to keep myself out of spider webs.
I’m looking forward to the day when I can feel at my ease, because that day is not yet here.
Continue to try to help me. I have a lot of experience with this sort of thing. A lot of similar friendships, and telling the differences in action and words. However, please attempt to put yourself in my shoes and you’ll have an idea of the sort of headache it gives me at times.
You and me? I feel like I have a best friend again. I love how tuned-in you are. Now, if we could just learn how to converse with each other, we’ll do much better. I’ve fallen for a guy who is super quiet. You’ve fallen for a chatterbox. God help us 🙂
