As Mr. Potts and I were coming up on our anniversary, we experienced a break-up. Not our own (obviously) but still one that was disappointing to us.
A couple friend of ours who had begun dating just after we did went through a few rough patches and we found out they decided they weren't going to stay together. It is sad because we like them both - both individually & as a couple. They were the couple that we did a lot with.
She owns a townhome in our neighborhood & he was always over, so we'd usually catch up with them & have wine on each other's decks or go to a local restaurant for a quick bite.
Mr. Potts is especially close to the guy & I guess I'm more neutral - probably because I've been traveling so much.
So how do we separate our friendship? Do we try to hang out with one at a time? What happens is the buy starts to want to hang out with just Mr. Potts & doesn't want me to come along as much? Can we invite him over for dinner, even though she lives in our neighborhood?
Our annual holiday party is coming up soon. I'm sure they'll be friendly to each other, but what if someone hits on her? Or him??
Why isn't there a self-help book that tells me how to deal with this?
Why do people have to break up & ruin couple friendships??
