My amazing group of friends are close! Super close! I’m not talking incentious but there are moments where I wonder if we’ve taken the whole ‘Friends are the Family You Choose‘ thing to the next level.
I guess when you move to a new country the friends you make become the people you spend family holidays with and thats something you need when you’re far from home.
Enter new friends or the ever troublesome new significant others and a shift occurs, sometimes for the better but sometimes you end up longing for simpler times when dinners out weren’t a strategical minefield of who sits next to whom.
I’m usually single except for my yearly attempt at dating, where I try have a relationship and not succumb to my inner Goldilocks whose chanting he’s too keen , he’s too mean etc… sometimes I think I’ll never meet a guy whose ‘just right’.
So until I do meet that mythical guy I’ll be doing the seating plans at any dinners out.
RSVP if you’re bringing a plus one.
