Dodecahedron314 Posted August 20, 2016 Share Posted August 20, 2016 So, at the beginning of the summer, my apartment started out with me, two friends, and two other friends who are dating each other. Now, it's just me and the two friends who are dating, and it's super awkward, because they're one of the most PDA-y couples I've ever come across in my life. At any particular moment, there's at least a 50% chance that one of them is kissing the other, even if that particular moment is literally in the middle of a conversation that I'm having with one of them. One of them has a kitten, and for a while the kitten was staying in my bathroom so that she could get acclimated to living with people, and as a result I would often have to wait at least an hour for a shower because my other two roommates insist on showering *together* so it takes twice as long, even though we only had one available bathroom at that point. Every night, they have their coupley time where even if we're all in the middle of something else that involves interacting with each other, one of them will suddenly say to the other "hey, want to go watch <random TV show or movie>?" and they'll disappear off together to do what I understand the term "Netflix and chill" to refer to. In short, I am the third-wheelingest third wheel ever to third wheel right now, and they're the only other people in my apartment so it's even worse because I don't even have anybody else to spend time with right now (I work until fairly late and none of my other friends are both 1. nearly as nocturnal as I am, and 2. in town at the moment). My strategy so far has been to either attempt to exist in the same room and fight my romance repulsion kicking in when they kiss every 5 minutes, or just kind of hide in my room and be antisocial. I haven't talked to them about it because I don't feel like it's my place to tell them how to act in their relationship. Has anybody else here been in a similar situation and figured out a solution that's not antisocial, squick-inducing, or overbearing/intrusive? Or am I just destined to spend the next 5 weeks (that's how long it is until I can move back into my dorm) being a hermit? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
