All of my friend groups would mingle and become friends and I could be surrounded by the people I love all of the time. Sometimes, however, I am TOO good at introducing friends from different groups, and two people will hit it off. And, before I know it, my master plan of having all of my friends be friends has gone further than I anticipated and two of my friends from two different worlds are creating their own little universe by beginning to date.
