The Question Club
Okay, some background.|
I have this friend, Al. (Al is the president of a club I'm in in college, and back in September, we got a new bunch of freshmen.) One of these freshmen, Ben, has developed a massive crush on Al. Al, not quite realising this, made out with him at a party a while ago, and ever since then, every night a bunch of us are out but Al's not there, I spend about half of my night with Ben poking me and asking where Al is.
Al has so far, pretty much shrugged off Ben's crush, whilst admitting that making out with him was a bit of a miscalculation.
At a party last week, after he'd asked me about sixteen times where Al was, Ben got completely wasted, and had to be walked home by three of us.
Do you think it would be a good idea for me (a relatively uninvolved third party) to have a bit of a talk with Ben? Or to talk to Al about his needing to talk to Ben? Some of us are concerned about how much longer this is going to go on, and about how devastated Ben is going to be. (Ben's from the back end of nowhere, and still maintains he isn't gay, but is just into Al, so he's not exactly the most emotionally-together of individuals.)
Any advice would be excellent.
