Starlight925 Posted December 7, 2017 Share Posted December 7, 2017 OK, so this is getting out of hand for me, and I want to hear if you have any types of similar situations, and how you handle them: Scenario 1 (has probably happened to us all): Ann is your friend for many years. Ann introduces you to Beverly. Beverly calls and asks you to do something, just you & Beverly, without Ann, just so the two of you can get to know each other better. You totally hit it off with Beverly, and you become friends, doing things often without Ann. Scenario 2: Beverly, your new friend from Ann, now invites you to a gathering of say, 5-8 people, including a lot of Ann's mutual friends, but Ann is still not included. You become friends with some of those friends. Scenario 3: Some of Beverly's and Ann's mutual friends, who you have now gotten to know, start inviting you to events, parties, etc.. Sometimes, Ann is still included, sometimes not. Ann and you are still friends and still talk often and still do things together. Ann is still considered the "glue" of all these friendships, and Ann will still have parties, etc., with all of you, not realizing that you have become friends with each other. So you all sort of quietly, mutually decide.....no Facebook pictures, make sure all your emails don't accidentally get forwarded Ann's way, so as to not hurt Ann's feelings. How do you handle this? As an adult, we should all realize.....friends often become friends from other friends. But all this evading is driving me crazy. Link to comment
