- Wedding: August 2014
So one of my good friends came “home” for the week and had a couple of get togethers so that he could hang out with all his friends. He is currently married and has a child, and lives across the country from me.
Anyways he had a few BBQ’s and since my ex and I were more or less high school sweethearts who dated for 5 years after high school, we tend to have alot of the same mutual friends. So of course my ex was there, and we havent really exchanged any words in the last 3 years. It was rather arkward and we didn’t exhange words at all at either party, other than him asking if i would like a drink in which i politly declined.
I was trying to act cool and chill with him being there and not really make a big deal out of it, so I pretty much stayed quiet and spoke with his wife and a few others. I’m typically the quiet one at socail gatherings anyways.
Does the arkwardness ever go away? I really hope for my friends sake that I wasn’t being too arkward. I love him and would do anything for him so I didnt want my arkwardness with the situation to ruin it. and he definatly would have been super sad if i wasnt there “your one of my best friends and id be sad if you didnt come” was his exact response to me asking if he was sure he wanted me to come.
and I am really thankful that my friends aren’t the type that make you choose sides after a breakup.
anyone have any simulair situations and how did it go?
