When someone acts like you’re better friends than you actually are

Ok, I stopped by the neighborhood where I grew up yesterday to grab yep slices of pizza, then I proceeded to check in with a pic on Facebook.

Many commented on it “it’s so good,” “looks delicious,” yadda yadda.

Then came a comment from a woman I know. Sort of. Kinda sorta.

Ok she is friends of my friends ‘ ex-girlfriend and we all used to hang out together. I’ve barely said FIVE PARAGRAPHS to her. In total. And I haven’t seen her in 8 years or so. Maybe more.

We don’t have each other’s numbers,  never hung out ever.  You get the idea. Now she’s married with kid. 

She says “oh you were in my neighborhood.  Next time you are let med know.  We’ll hang out.”

WHAAAAAAAAAAT?!?! That was unexpected.

Of course,  if she were single,  this wouldn’t be such an awkward request.

However I have no way of knowing is not.  Her FB profile pic is of her and her husband. And her FB status still days Married. I’m not on touch with anybody that we have in common either.

“But Rex, what’s wrong with someone wanting to be closer with you, you black-hearted statue?”

Nothing,  but even going from 0 to 60 in a split second can give whiplash. Even a Ferrari takes 2.6 seconds.

So I’ll sum it up… DON’T PUT PEOPLE IN AWKWARD POSITIONS.

That should be the Eleventh Commandment.

It’s like when someone you barely know asks you to be in their bridal party or Godparent to their child.

Ok those are extreme but you get the point.

Don’t behave like your friendship is at a far different level than it actually is.

That’s creepy shit.

  1. She apparently has fonder memories of those five paragraphs than you do, Rex. No, seriously, I think she was just being nice to an old friend from the neighborhood, FB style. Now is he started to direct message you and asked if you were coming on a weekday afternoon when her husband was working, that would be another matter.

  2. OK sooo I get to be odd one out here… Seems to me she was just being nice and maybe you read a bit too much into it. She didn’t request a date or hookup just a friendly get together. Maybe you just triggered fond old memories?

      1. By the way, when you come to Memphis we should hang out. (do I need to do the “I don’t want to date you” disclaimer thangy?) hee hee – couldn’t resist

  3. Probably just an innocuous comment. I’ve made the same offers to people (ex boyfriends in town to do the tourist thing) who happen to have their spouses in tow. Just thought it would be rude if I didn’t at least make the offer. Ohhhh maybe I came across as CREEPY…. Food for thought…
