Last night I went out to dinner with my friends, two of which were in a relationship and one I related to at some point. And they expected it to be awkward. But I came to the conclusion, that things are only as awkward as you make them. Although some things are always awkward, like waiting 30 minutes for a cop to show up. And then them calling to let you know that they arrived. And then trying to find them, only to get told that the current situation could not be resolved. So that just makes everyone a teensy bit annoyed, but at least hanging out has diffused the tension a bit. And food is just always delicious.
