Proving to be the distraction I requested, Matt and I covered an array of topics that covered the span of our 10-year friendship- including our little tryst at being friends-with-benefits. All you need to know is that it wasn’t too successful, but we had fun and we’re still friends. Isn’t that all that matters now?Moving on… it was through our conversation- even the FWB discussion and my point that we’re better off as friends (so true)– I knew that I had to open up to Matt about what’s been bothering me this week. After all, he already knew the background- which was coincidentally me at my worst.
To be honest with Matt, I have to first be honest with myself. So self, I know you know but let me say it anyways: “I’m struggling here. I’m trying to understand why and how. And why…why now?”
Serena: I would say I’m sorry about today, but in my head that just sounds inadequate.
Dan: Ah, you don’t need to apologize. It’s not your fault that I seem to drop everything just to make myself available to you.
Serena:I don’t mean to take you for granted. It’s just, if we’re being completely honest…
Dan: We are.
Serena: I think that maybe sometimes I test you. You know, I keep thinking that if things get too hard you’ll give up on me. But you never do.
Dan: And I never will. If you really need me—ever—I am there.
