When a pair of platonic friends attended a party, things got awkward. Like Michael Cera at a high school party awkward. I mean like back when he played an awkward high schooler in all those roles, not him himself going to an acutal high school party now. (Do people know him still? Does this reference still hold water?) Anway, one young woman came to Reddit for advice:
I’ve (22F) been friends with James (22m) since we started college. Around 7-8 months ago he decided to change his lifestyle and be healthier. He was overweight but already lost a lot of weight and fitter. I was his workout/motivation buddy throughout these months but lately he’s been confident enough to do his own thing.
A couple of weeks ago we went to a friends party (it wasn’t really a party, more of a low key get together). James is shy/awkward and tends to stick with me whenever we go to social environments with lots of people. But at some point this (tipsy) girl came up to him and seemed clearly interested.
