Friends start dating each other
Being the Relationship Middle Man can start out fun, sharing secrets with each of the respective parties and giving them hints that maybe they haven’t picked up on from their significant other, but it’s a slippery slope.
Before you know it, each of them are sending you screenshots of their text conversations and asking you what he meant, asking you if she is mad at him, and a million other annoying insecurities.
All of my friend groups would mingle and become friends and I could be surrounded by the people I love all of the time. Sometimes, however, I am TOO good at introducing friends from different groups, and two people will hit it off. And, before I know it, my master plan of having all of my friends be friends has gone further than I anticipated and two of my friends from two different worlds are creating their own little universe by beginning to date. It makes for easy double dates and you get to take all the credit (OK, most of the credit) for their fabulous relationship.
There is one dangerous trap that comes with this matchmaking title, and that is the pitfall of becoming the Relationship Middle Man.
Well with a delicate situation like this, you need as much help as you can get to make the decision and process of transition from friends to couple run smoothly.
You've had relationships that didn't last because of how close you and your best friend are.It’s so weird for me to see them together romantically because we’ve always been good friends.Now it’s transitioned to something else and I don’t know how to handle it.“This is the most random group of people ever,” they would joke.In my head, however, I believed that everyone would get along.
