So I'm out tonight and I run into a friend of the guy I was dating. She and I had met on several occasions when gaming was involved. She asked how I was and I told her I was fine. I basically said that he and I had talked and he needs time to figure out what he wants and get some of his issues under control. She said that this has been the pattern for a long time with him (they've known each other a couple years). His main issue is being honest with himself. She said he may not be able to clear up these issues - he hasn't in the past. It's a re-occurring problem. She seemed a little irritated with him - seems he showed up on her doorstep the other night (very late) and wanted to crash on her couch. We discussed some more of the issues he's having and then parted. She said if it were her she wouldn't wait around for him.

I find this very interesting. The meeting was completely random. I wasn't planning on "waiting around" for him. I'm not even sure at this point that a friendship is possible. Now I'm pondering what her motives were for speaking to me about the situation.

AC *is it a sign or a ruse*
