Hey Guys –
I usually don’t do this – especially on the internet… But I’m in a real bind here and I need some advice. My buddy Ryan and I have been good friends (maybe even best friends) for years now. We’ve gone through everything together. The highs and the lows in his career… everything. I was in his wedding party, and hell, I’m even godfather to his first kid.
This is where the problems occur. Ryan and his wife Reese broke up a while ago now – It’s probably been a little over a year. This is commonplace nowadays, I know – but it was still really hard on him. Well, recently… Fuck, I’ll just say it – Reese and I have been seeing each other for a few weeks now. It started out as a booty call – like a really short term thing – but now it’s full fledged dating. I really have it bad for her, the girl’s amazing.
But Ryan doesn’t know. Yeah, that’s the problem. I’m dating my best friend’s ex-wife behind his back. I know it shouldn’t be a thing – they’ve been divorced for over a year now, but every time we hang out now, I feel like I’m lying to him a little more. I just – I need some advice. What should I do? I mean – I have to tell him, right? Sooner or later one of the kids is going to say something – “Uncle Jim took us to the zoo.” or something… I just… Help?
