I feel your pain. I really do.
There’s a reason the saying “three’s a crowd” is so widely known and used, and that’s to warn gals like you from the impending misery of hanging with your best friend + 1. No, accompanying them to dinner while they fiercely enact their right to PDA is not fun. Neither is being her listening ear 30 minutes later on the way to the bar as she criticizes the way he was looking at that waitress. Annnnd then comes their full blown fight once you actually get to the bar (i.e. the booze starts flowing). Can you spell A-W-K-W-A-R-D?
Oh, and it gets worse. Let’s not forget that if you happen to be lucky enough to sleep over at your friend’s house, chances are you’ll get a front row seat to that middle-of-the-night-makeup-sack-sess.
So ladies, it really is in your best interest to avoid this at all cost…even if it means a Friday night alone with Dateline. At least your TV wont put you in the line of fire of flying drinks. Really, your dry cleaning bill thanks you for it.
