I have a best friend. I love my best friend. But she won't talk about Dennis. She won't listen to me talk about him. She won't ask questions about him. She's totally against talking about him. Maybe she does it on purpose, maybe she doesn't.
You see the thing is, Dennis lives in Alaska. I know, you already knew that. But the fact that he lives in Alaska is something that she doesn't like because it means that if things progress further, and dare I say the "m" word, it means that I will be moving to Alaska. And she doesn't like that.
She doesn't want me to move. She wants me to stay in California near my family and friends. And I would like to too, but at this point in Dennis' life he needs to be in Alaska with his kids. And I totally understand and respect that. And I'm willing to go where he is.
But she just sees him as the one that will be stealing her best friend away. She's totally blinded. Blinded by the one fact. He could be prince charming and the perfect man, but he wouldn't be to her.
I just want her to share my joy and be happy for me. Is that so much to ask?
