The Third Wheel

So…Dalal’s gathering where she was inviting a few friends?

Not so much a gathering.

It was just Dalal, her boyfriend, and I.

I hate being placed in these type of situations. If you want to spend time with your boyfriend, then just spend time with your boyfriend. There’s no need for me to be there.

I wasn’t sure why I was invited. You know how sometimes you have friends who want to spend time with their significant others but want someone there to entertain them? Have you ever had that happen to you? Have you ever had that moment of realization that you’re there to supply them with fresh stories because their relationship had gotten stale, they wanted a change of scene but didn’t want to commit to going out, or for whatever reason?

Well that didn’t happen tonight.

Dalal was quite fine flirting with him and didn’t need me to inject their relationship with titillating conversation. Not that I did, mind you. As soon as I got a grasp on the situation, I was just counting the seconds until I got out of there.

All in all, the entire evening was awkward and uncomfortable, and at some point I finally realized the reason I was invited was so that she wasn’t officially “alone” with him in her home.

So yeah, the evening didn’t go as expected.
