The Question Club
Not that this actually happened or anything, but let's pretend. |
So say that you have a really really really really really close friend. Like best of the best. You get along super well, you can tell them absolutely anything, you never get annoyed with each other, etc. Like yeah. We'll call them Person 1.
You are at the place where you met this friend, said friend is not there, but will be there later in the summer. You get to become close with another person (person 2) and find out that Person 1 and Person 2 have A LOT in common. Like it's something that not many people have in common but OMG they do. So you start talking Person 1 up to Person 2, unaware that this may later stab you in the gums.
Person 1 arrives. At first Person 1 and Person 2 don't interact much. You leave said place. Person 1 thinks Person 2 hates them, and they don't know about the thing they have in common yet. You push REALLY REALLY hard for them to get to know one another, because you know that they'll get along really well (blissfully unaware to the later strife this may cause you yourself.) So, it works. They meet. They suddenly become TIGHT. Like really tight. Like "This is slightly unfair seeing as I did all the work in A) becoming friends with Person 2 and B) connecting Person 1 and Person 2." tight. Time passes. Person 1 leaves said place, you come back to said place. Person 1 orchestrates you and Person 2 hooking up, which you have wanted to do all...along. Person 2 and you are both so timid that you know that this never would have happened without Person 1 acting as a liaison between the two of you to assure you that you both wanted to do shit. You and Person 2 leave said place. Now you and Person 1 are as close as ever, but it seems to you that Person 2 is drifting away from you, and drifting towards Person 1. You know that Person 1 likes Person 2 and you know that Person 2 (much to your dismay) likes pretty much everyone and is not picky. You feel slightly irked that after your six weeks of gaining Person 2's friendship that once you introduced 1 and 2 they Automatically became tight and that Person 1 did no real work, although you can't be upset with Person 1 totally because you know that without Person 1 you wouldn't have hooked up with Person 2. But now it seems like Person 2 is being standoffish towards you and not at all towards Person 1.
You are supposed to go...on a trip with Person 1 and Person 2 shortly but you worry that Person 2 would rather you not be there. Person 1 assures you that this is not the case, and you do worry that people don't like you unnecessarily, but you are also worried that on said trip Person 2 will make faces behind your back and then due to Person 2's uncommitted nature that Person 2 will do the nasty with Person 1 while you are in the same...place which would not be surprising because when you and Person 2 did stuff there were other people in the immediate vicinity.
So, if you got that, at all, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
What would you think? What is your opinion on this mottled strange saga? Hypothetical advice for these not real people?
