She didn't exactly ask my permission, and I didn't expect it as she was so young when it started and she is so shy. As a matter of fact, she didn't break our house rules (only group dating in junior high) as he isn't allowed to date at all.
In any case, you are so right. He is so used to living a double life, that he thinks it is perfectly normal. I point out to Birdie quite regularly that he "just doesn't get it" about a lot of things. She agrees, but isn't ready to give him up as a friend or boyfriend.
Lucid Sky, sorry, we kind of pulled your very intersting thread off topic.
