So, I’ve had the
displeasure of dating closely to my circle. A mistake I will never knowingly do again. It’s too much a hassle when it’s over. I like clean breaks and then if I want to continue a friendship down the line that’s on me.
I’m selfish. I don’t want to share my friends with my ex. And then depending on how things end causes a ripple in the circle. It’s awkward. People take sides, or you expect for them to take sides.
I’ve done this twice. I mostly regret it because it’s hard on all parties. But now a days, people either meet through a friend or online. It’s safer (I think) to meet through a friend because you can at least get background on the person. You can get catfished online.
Have you dated in your circle? How did that go?
