Back in July while I was camping, my buddy Alex found a new girlfriend. So far so good. The problem is that whenever we all hang out together, the chemistry between us seems to gell. I’m gellin’ like a felon, at risk of stealing my buddy’s girlfriend.

Honestly, I’d have to say that I think we’re a better match than she is with him. If we were in high school, and had no serious long term intentions in our dating, that would be one thing, but post mission, is it wrong to recognize the fact that we’re a better match? To act on that recognition?

For now, I guess I’m satisfied with the way things are. We may not be dating, but we are getting to know each other and building a friendship, which is a good foundation for a more serious relationship. I don’t think she and Alex will get more serious, so maybe it would be best to bide my time till they start drifting apart.

Or not. Tough call.
