The Awkward Trio
Posted 9/10/10
So your best friend has a boyfriend and you're single.

Tell me,

how freaking awkward is it to hang around with them? They are constantly cuddling and making out and you're just sitting there like always feeling like you're just in the way.


I can't take it anymore >_<, its not jealousy its just I feel like an idiot when I just sit there and they are pretending to listen to me but what they really want to go home and screw eachother's brains out.

When I'm with someone, I don't make out infront of my friends especially when they are talking, thats plain rude! I'll hold hands and stuff but I won't do anything that might make them feel awkward and uncomfortable.

Now if my friend asks me to go to town I say "Is Richard (the bf) going?" lol if so "Er sorry I'm busy..."

Well if they just got into a relationship you should probably give them some space. The idea of a new relationship overwhelms a lot of people. After a while it should go somewhat back to normal.

Man, i could write volumes of how i fell when that happens since like 9/10 of my friends are in relationships i feel liek im being a burden or a total downer the guy is always trying to get initiment and the girl always looks at me like "why are you here?" T_T all the more reason to get myself a gf xD

I do give them space, and a lot of it to avoid the awkwardness.

Tell them. "Look I don't like it when you make out. Do it somewhere else!" And push them away.

I went to the prom with a friend of mine and her boyfriend after some drama with the dude who was supposed to be my date. It was awkward staying with them, but they weren't 'cuddling' or any of that. Her date was being a bitch and she was whispering to me about how much of a pain he was.

I stayed with them until dinner was over and spent most of the rest of the time there dancing with my other friends. They didn't mind. They either talked by themselves or danced, and when they danced I joined them for a few minutes until they had to sit back down again. I'm guessing constantly sitting back down was his idea.

It's entirely appropriate to tell them if they're making you feel uncomfortable. I know that every time my best friend had a girlfriend I felt a bit jealous. Not so much because he was enjoying something I wasn't, but rather because it took away from our time hanging out.

It gets worse as you get older and people start getting married and having kids.

God I feel old now... enjoy it while you're young, whipper-snappers!

I always hate it when my friend decides to make out with his gf.....whether its over his house or my house.....and then he ask me if they can go to another room to *have fun*....whether it still be in my house or his......its like......why the hell would you want to hang out with me when at any point during the hanging out period you want to have fun with your girl?

I hate PDAs. It makes things so awkward for everybody except the couple. I seriously want to tell them to go somewhere private. Why the heck am I around if you're just going to be all lovey-dovey and pay no attention to me? Have you no shame?

I NEVER show PDAs. I have the courtesy to think about how others would feel, and I have a sense of dignity.

AAAAAARRGHHH.

Okay, so I am in a group of six, so this rarely happens. But when I'm with one of them, and she is with her boyfriend THEY TOTALLY RAPE EACHOTHER in the common room. She's like grinding on his lap whilst they make out. SHE STRADDLES HIM.

Aaand I'm not one to feel awkuard when I don't have to be so I always tell them. xD I just make sure I;m not alone with them. Creeps.

I'm not a fan of PDA. I know exactly how the OP feels. Most of my friends are with someone, and it gets a little annoying after awhile when they're always talking about their gf or bf or when whenever we hang out they want to bring them along. I haven't been in a relationship in two years, so maybe I just don't understand things from their point of view, but bf or not, when I'm hooking up with someone or whatever, I definitely don't do it with friends around.

it's not just awkward it's annoying.. my bestfriend always tries to drag his girlfriend along no matter what the occasion is. like earlier this evening, we were planning to go drinking with HS buddies and this guy says: "dude, i'm sorry but my girlfriend can't come." i kinda snapped.. (accumulated weeks of tension) WTF man?! if she comes, she comes, if she doesn't, she doesn't! now shut up and get in the damn car so we can drink beer!

i have no qualms with the love lives of my friends.. i wouldn't mind even if they dated bigfoot or the lochness monster. just as long as they let me accept them naturally at my own pace. but people being people.. they tend to be assholes


(rant portion)

anyway.. all the bastard talked about during the entire session is how he she's the "one" i'm gonna marry her and build my dream house.. yadda yadda. btw i gotta go i need to go online, she just texted me that she's online on FB right now." dude.. you're texting each other doesn't that count? i know.. but she's online. i have to go online too! soo... let me get this straight you stalk your own girlfriend online? it's not stalking! i'm just watching out for her enemies. oohkay.. (at this point most of the guys are now whispering about how the guy's being a creep)

so how's the relationship going? "it's fine now, i just laid out some ground rules for her to follow" like what for example...? "before she goes out she must tell me all the names of the people she's with and the address of where she's going" (this one statement alone promoted him from creep to douchebag) dude.. don't you think that's a bit excessive? "no.. i'm doing it for the good of the relationship and besides *insert self righteous bullshit here* you guys will do the same if you were in place..

if not for the sake of 16 years of friendship i would've bashed his head in with the barstool.

i know how that feels, its like when he's there i'll leave, i could be talkin to her, and he comes, i'll think of an excuse and go, i mean im happy that shes happy idk, i dont like it much, always feeling left out

except for married people or really matured couples in the 20s and older
I admire the real love couples only
