A few years ago, I became friends with a woman at my gym. We would sometimes work out together or have conversations in the locker room, we exchanged e-mail addresses and phone numbers and occasionally hung out outside of the gym. About eight months later, I met and started dating a man who is now my fiance.
Fast forward two years to today. This friend and my fiance are better friends than I am. They have each other’s phone numbers and will text each other frequently (he’s been helping her land a job where he works), and if she wants to get together she’ll text him instead of me. When we do get together, it’s getting less and less fun because the two of them have a ton of common interests, and they’ll pretty much monopolize the conversation to talk about these interests, even though I’ve mentioned a few times that it can be awkward when they do that. They will occasionally hang out without me, although it’s only because they like to go shooting together and I don’t like shooting.
However, this friend is not interested in men. She likes women, and (aside from when they go shooting) whenever we hang out it’s at her house along with her girlfriend. Her girlfriend is super-easy going, and I don’t think their friendship bothers her at all. On my end of things, I was never really close with this girl to begin with, she was more someone to hang out with than to have heart-to-heart conversations with. But, well, hanging out with them just isn’t as much fun as it used to be.
Anyways, I’m just not sure what a reasonable reaction to a situation like this is, so I was just wondering how you all would react.
