When a close friend – let’s call him S – got in touch with me recently for help in dealing with ‘a tricky situation’, I instantly knew that I was in for an emotional exchange of epic proportions. He only needed to begin with “I was a little tipsy…”. And the rest I could easily guess. He had been facing issues in his relationship for a while, and couldn’t stop gushing about a girl he recently met at a workshop.
Our conversation went on the following lines:
S: She understands me.
Me: Don’t we all understand each other in the beginning?
