... so I'll stop trying. I'm currently laying on a pullout couch in a hotel in Great Lakes, IL. It's 2:25 in the morning, and about a hour ago, before I'd actually fallen asleep, I heard my friend Nick, recently graduated Sailor and my best friend, getting naughty with his ex, Brittany. Hooray for him, right? Nope, she has a boyfriend...FULL STORY: They've dated on and off for about 5 years now, they've been engaged, it fell through, he's hated her, loved her and vice versa, he's written her off, she's done the same, and she's cheated with him, but as far as I know, never ON him. She's now dating a guy, who she's been with since March I believe, and has been sick of him twice in that time period until, as far as I can tell, about a month ago... right when she decided she wanted to be with Nick again. She didn't break up with this guy, Brandon, because she wasn't sure if Nick would take her back. Brandon is actually at her house right now back home, watching her new kitten for her...She's cheated on this new guy with Nick at least once before Nick left for Basic, and confided it in me, which I have kept to myself, solely because I wasn't in it. Now, however, I feel that I am a little more involved with the situation. I'm writing this for a few reasons:1) In hopes that I will end up tired and able to sleep. (not lookin good)2) To ask if I should confront them or tell Brandon when I get home about what I heard, or just let them eventually tell him what's goin' down.3) To ask if I should tell Nick that she never even told Brandon that she was considering breaking up with him for Nick, and played Nick's heartstrings like a fucking violin.The only issue with not telling is that I would bet my ENTIRE life earnings that they would NEVER tell him what has gone down. Not really an issue, aside from the fact that Brandon has changed just about everything about himself FOR Brittany. Bought a new Mustang, started looking for a new job, stopped drinking as much, all because he genuinely loves her, and wants to, from what I've seen, spend his life with her.SIDE NOTE: I think I might actually vomit, but I can't tell why... it's either the pure, unadulterated rage I'm feeling at them for getting it on with me and his SLEEPING MOTHER in the room, or the complete, overwhelming disgust I'm feeling over the fact that they are back at this shit, even having seen how it always ends...
I can't think of a fitting title... (LONG READ!)
When I need you most, will you be there to stand by me, unquestioning and faithful, willing to wait until the end before passing judgement?
Different people will have different views on how far you should get involved. I think you should tell Nick that Brittany has not left Brandon. I think if you have the opportunity you should tell Brittany privately your opinion of what she is doing. I do not think you should say anything to Brandon.
Ugh, what this Brittany girl is doing is disgusting. Gives us females a bad name.I think you should just talk to your buddy Nick about the fact she's going back and forth, being unfair to both your friend and Brandon. She doesn't have the right to play with their feelings like it's some kind of game.
No matter how gifted, you alone can not chang...
My opinion is that you should maintain a serious distance between yourself and this soap-opera. When somebody wants to confide in you concerning all this, tell them NO! Getting others involved in your mess is like spreading the pain around...it's not right. People should deal with their own messes. After it all explodes, you can always be there for your friend to lean on...but that's different from getting involved yourself.
I might disagree with you here.I would say, it all depends on who your loyalties run to, as to who you should tell what to.If its nick, he already fucking knows shes got a bf, he does not care, he is looking for a girl to fuck tonight, and if a different girl spreads her legs next week, he is fine with that as well.If its to the buy back home, if my buddy knew my girl was fucking someone else, he better tell me.
Let's agree to respect each others views, no matter how wrong yours may be.
