Life is full of little ironies isn't it?
I make the decision to set one of my best friends up with my uncle. To all intents & purposes the plan is a success. They are officially dating now. I should be happy for them & I am. Except that:
1) If he's her boyfriend does this mean that I have to see him everytime I see her? Because that's kind of uncomfortable for me. He & I are close in age & kind of good friends but he's still my uncle. There are things that I can't say or do with him around. I love my family but I really don't want to go clubbing with my uncle. It's not the sort of thing you do with an uncle around. It's just too weird.
2) She knows everything about me. And there are things I would just die if she tells him. Can I trust her not to tell him?I mean do couples ever really keep things from each other?
3) She gives me too much information. There are comments that I don't usually mind hearing from a gf about her partner - but not when the partner is my uncle. That's embarrassing. It grosses me out for some reason.
4) Despite all attempts to the contrary I find myself more involved in the details of their relationship than I want to be. She keeps coming to me with issues & questions. She & her mother keep trying to pump me for information. Information like how like or unlike his ex-wife I think she is. That's not a question I want to deal with.
