Admit it, we all have that one friend who has constant relationship problems and the week isn’t complete without some drama going down. This is the kind of couple that reminds you of your parents arguing in their worst tempers. You think all hell is going to break loose, which it does, but eventually you get used to it as you are constantly dragged in and are made to do more than the part of an innocent bystander. You’re supposed to be there for your friend and support them.
In my case my friend Cassy was always arguing with her boyfriend Tony. Cassy and Tony have been together since 8th grade and are arguably one of the most toxic couples you might have seen yet they still seem to gravitate towards each other like the opposite ends of two magnets. Where do I come in all of this you ask? I am that friend who listens to Cassy’s night long rants of what an imbecile Tony is. I mean who does he think he is? Adonis, the Greek male god of beauty and desire? He has no right to treat Cassy the way he does and trust me she deserves soooo much better than his late replies and broken promises. I have no idea what she sees in him. Boyfriends are supposed to be sweet and loving and be there for you when you need them the most, not go around town on a bike with his friends all the time and just talk to you when he is bored. I tell Cassy that she is a drop dead gorgeous woman and does not need a man to be happy as she is strong and independent.
But does she listen? No. she runs back to his arms for the slightest bit of affection and comes back glowing after she gets some Tony love. It makes me so happy to see her that happy and glowing and, in those moments, makes me believe Tony could be a nice guy and should treat her that way all the time. If he doesn’t I will be right here waiting to listen to her rant and prepping her to be strong and independent till he decides to give her attention again. What can I do I live my friend and I will help her bury a dead body if she decides to kill him.
