My church's valentines dinner is Saturday night. There will be dinner and a musical show after. SO is out of town. He suggested I ask my childhood best friend to go with me. He knows he is a Christian, and someone that I hold very dear and though he would be a nice "date" for me since SO can't go. There has never been anything romantic between said friend and I, we have been best friends for almost 30 years. But SO and I have been together for almost 9 and I just feel weird taking another guy to a "sweetheart banquet". Yet on the other hand it would be great to see my old friend and catch up. He is single, btw.
