The thing is, this girl lives in the town where I live and everybody knows everybody here. So, I start seeing this new guy and he takes me into the bar where she works—literally just a few blocks from both our houses.
At first I didn’t recognize her but she got to talking and I figured out who she was. Because I’m crazy, I kept going back to this bar and got to be really popular and made a lot of friends there...
... the girl included. I have no idea if she knows who I am, but we’ve gotten to talking a lot and now we’re going out for drinks tonight.
The problem is, I’m living in a powder keg. I haven’t really done anything wrong, but I value both friendships now and want to find a way to let both sides know without things exploding.
How the hell do I handle this?
