So, there's this childhood classmate I ran into back in 2018. I have since seen him but never had the chance to confess that I wanted to reconnect and hang out sometime. He works at our grocery store, so he talks to my parents quite frequently. Since at the time it was quarantine (today's our state's final day of it), my father thought he'd do me a favor and give him my phone number (big mistake!) He did this on Sunday and I was excited to talk to him. I wanted to get to know him as a friend because I don't develop feelings until I've known them for a while, so I saw no harm in what was happening, neither did my parents. Monday came and went. Then on Tuesday night my dad came back from running an errand and said that he had a girlfriend and she found my number. My dad continued on saying that he told his girlfriend I was a "childhood classmate" and that he didn't know me personally. I can understand from her perspective but on the same note, I still felt cheated because I waited too long. Now, I don't know what will come of it since I didn't ask my father to do it, he did it to make me happy. I have been depressed and in need of some company, so you know what it's like to have parents who want to see you smile again. It actually kind of broke my heart and now I don't know what to do. I just keep thinking how happy he must already be and maybe I'm better off without him. All I know is that I wish I would've reached out sooner because now I feel like I'm intruding on someone else's relationship, despite it only being friendship.
