So about 14 months ago I attempted to set two of my friends up. There were a few difficulties because she lives in the States and he lives in New Zealand. They had also both had some minor issues with internet relationships in the past and were cautious at the idea of trying that again. The fact that I was the one setting them up made it a good thing as well as a bad thing.

Anyway, I pushed ahead and talked each person up to the other. With a bit of pushing - the people involved will read this in think it was a lot of pushing but really I just pushed enough that was necessary to get things moving in the right direction. That might have seemed like a lot of force to them but they are both stubborn and obviously didn't know what was good for them! - they started emailing each other and commenting on journal posts/FB statuses.

Well the email kept rolling and the conversations expanded to MSN chats, texts and then video chat. They were getting to know each other. My plan was working. (Insert evil laugh here.)

Things progressed and the boy and the girl decided it was time to meet. The girl was looking at studying in New Zealand as one of the universities offered a good extension to her current area and it would be a nice change of environment. Remember she was planning on coming here for study and not for the boy. The boy decided that maybe it would be a good idea for him to visit her before she moved and if he could arrange it properly he might even be able to come on the same flight with her back to New Zealand to help her with the whole moving process.

With a lot of confusion and sorting and getting things in line the tickets were booked and the flight was taken. The boy arrived at the girls place yesterday. It is all very exciting and interesting to see what happens from here. They are not going out or anything official but neither really wanted to do that until they met in person.

I am super excited for them but also part of me feels sad. I have known the girl for over 6 years and even though we have never met in person she is one of my best friends. I have finally managed to get her to come over here but even then my time with her will be limited. At the moment she is hanging out with this guy and getting even better acquainted with him and I am on the other side of the world missing out (yeah I know that is selfish). When she comes over here I am apparently not allowed to see her for over a week because the boy is instantly whipping her off on a holiday to see some of the sites. As if it isn't torture enough knowing I am missing out on something now, I will get to know that she is in the country and still not get to see her. I know we will get to hang out eventually but right now I have to wait. Yeah I really didn't think it through when I set them up!

Oh well, it will be interesting to see where things go from here.

Ok seriously? In relation to my earlier post. The boy is now pretending to be oblivious to the fact that I know he is at the girls house. It is incredibly annoying. I know he is there. He knows that I know he is there so why the big song and dance about it?
I haven't got to talk to my female friend at all today and I expected that but he could at least play nice couldn't he?
So I am nosy. It is one of those good, caring type nosy's where I want to know how things are going. Going to a physical strangers house to sty for 3 weeks is a big deal. I know it is. Is it too much to ask that I at least be graced with acknowledgement that I know he is there?

I am sure I am blowing things out of proportion and getting all annoyed at the silliest of thing. I am tired. I am emotionally drained. I just wanted a few words. Oh well. I guess I now know what to expect. I should just move on.

yeah right!
