my favoritest band-- and and much confusion.

I'm going to see Weezer Oct. 3 in St Paul!! WOooo. They are my #1 top band, and I'm psyched.

Ok, so conundrum for foosters to solve.
Remember the best friend I went on a few dats with? He's still in the picture.
Remember triguy I was kind of dating? He's still kind of around.

We all share a deep love for Weezer. I ordered tix with my friend- we're for sure going together.

Triguy also has tickets. He knows I bought a ticket, but he got two and is looking for someone else to go. I have a feeling that as the day sneaks up he might be looking to join in on my group--

Uhhmmmm what if I'm still kind of seeing both of them? And we all have floor tickets... and, umm. I'm already feeling a little awkward I haven't asked if triguy wants to come with- but then, he didn't invite me to go with him So, could be super awkward if we all went together, or even ran into each other.

My friend knows I kind of dated (or am?) dating triguy, triguy doesn't know anything about the friend being more than a friend.

not exactly the response I hoped for.

I mean, I'm not serious with either of them, I'm not even sure I'm interested in dating anyone... and we've never had exclusivity talks. But I still can't bring two potential dates to one place, at the same time.

Cripes, sounds like an episode of Seinfeld.

Wait a minute, I though we were dating... ya know, for the cool stuff we're gonna buy after we break up...

The only thing you can do is tell triguy about your friend. Nip it in the bud, so to speak...

we never talked about exclusivity either you just said you'd be significant enough for me to justify a shopping spree.

maybe things will be clearer to me by October? Considering its been 6 months + with triguy and umm 6 years of friendship with the other guy and its still clear as mud to me what i want in life...

I'll probably post whining about this a few more times btw now and then.

Not to belittle your dilemma, but by then it may have resolved itself....bottom line - you should focus on enjoying the show. It's not like you created the problem, or did anything to hurt anyone.

meanwhile, practice up on all these, just in case

So you all love 'Wheezer'? A common bond you all share! Well then, I'm surprised it hasn't been said yet, and in foo it must be said: Threesome!

It sounds like every sitcom ever written. So you know what to do. Park yourself with 'friend' in one spot, tell him you have to go to the bathroom and say "Don't move!", then find 'triguy' (before he finds you with 'friend'), chat him up a bit, then tell him you have to go to the bathroom and say "Don't move!", then go back to 'friend'. Repeat all night. Tell us how that goes.

Artifice,

I believe I am twice the man that either of them are... In age or weight.

I'll await the invitation.

well, friend + is the official companion for the event considering we planned tix together. I'm just concerned what to do with the other guy, should he end up coming along/run into him/etc.

And you know artifice, we're only looking after your best interests, because from a guy's perspective, this is the wrong kind of threesome.
