Warning, it'll be long, but I need serious advice at this point, so I'd like to ask you to read it through.
Ok, here's the exposition. I liked Girl 1 since beginning of last year, then Girl 2 came along and I fell idiotically in love with her. We broke up and I told the reason for the breakup only to Friend 1. Friend 1 isn't really friends with Girl 1. Friend 1 is my greatest friend, we have some shit behind us.
Oh, they had this question on jeopardy the other day, I believe the answer was WHO GIVES A FUCK?
...This is drama? Does this even matter? No, really. Don't you have more important things in your life whether to fret over how a girl knew why you and your ex no longer are dating? Isn't that a good thing?
Is accepting that either can be telling as much truth, and wait until you naturally discover the truth x years laters really such a problem? It's also useful to automatically assume ignorance rather than malice. Your friend might have casually (without noticing) said some things that clued others in on the situation.
OP here. No no, you're kinda right, I may be blowing things out of proportion, it's just that the breakup thing wasn't really flattering to me and I kinda assumed that it would stay in the dark. And no, it was something really couldn't just be hinted at, you'd have the full thing to understand even a bit.
I was just looking for an oppertunity to try that line, otherwise I wouldn't have replied at all.
The best way to approach this is with subtlety. You don't want to lose the friendship of Friend 1, nor cross the girl of your dreams off your list either. Adding to the fact, both parties seem to have expertise in the art of deceit. You my friend, have quite a dilemma on your hands. Hence the logical and most effective thing to do would be to catch either party off guard. It would probably be more practical to work on your Friend 1, seeing as you are more acquainted with him.
