Best friends

    “So, do you think he saw you as girlfriend material?”
He can ask this because he is one of my best friends, one of seven, part of a selected and loved few.
He asks this because he believes it is therapeutic. Some important step needed to move on.

No, he did not saw me as girlfriend material; we both know this. Nobody has seen me as girlfriend material for a long time. If I do the math, the result is equal to 10 years. I was 18, he was twenty. A lovely young man named Vincent. He asked me to be his, I said yes. We lasted a month, and that was it. Last time someone, to my knowledge, thought I was a good idea.

    No, no, obviously not.”
I answer swallowing what is left of my pride.
Step one: Admit you are not important to others.

    Yeah, well, it happens.”
He says before taking a drink of his beer.

    Yeah…”
Step two: Pretend. Pretend you did not have pathetic hopes for a family with him. Pretend you are a jaded woman with no feelings and no desire to settle down. Pretend that a beer with a friend is all you need to forget.

Step three: Drink a beer and start forgetting.

   
… so, you? What happened with that girl?
I can ask this because I am one of his best friends, plus I am really sure he needs to talk a little about it, it might help him…
