Sex With My Best Friend

Dear Darcy:

Last night I hooked up with one of my best friends. It was without question the best sex of my life. The sex went on all night long until we passed out watching the sunrise. A few hours later I woke up, got dressed, and slipped out while she was still sleeping. I have no idea how to interact with her at this point. Under normal circumstances I would be texting her throughout the day, but I don’t know what to say. It’s not like either of us is with someone else. I can’t tell if I just made the best move of my life or the biggest mistake of my life.


I'd say you made one of each! You totally had me beaming with happiness for you up until the point when you SLIPPED OUT WHILE SHE WAS STILL SLEEPING? Seriously? Who does that?! I mean, I get it, but this isn’t some hottie you picked up at a random bar. It’s your BFF!

You were golden up until that point. Not just in my book, but in hers. If it was the best sex of your life, it probably rated up there for her as well. There was nothing irrevocable (other than the sex, which I suspect neither of you would undo) until you left with her sleeping in the sex sheets – Alone.

Listen, I’m guessing you don’t want a full-on analysis of why you did what you did, and truth be known, I wouldn’t know where to start. Let me help get you back into the fold, or at least assist in some damage control.

You need to contact her immediately, preferably in person to avoid any miscommunication. Once you’re together, own up to your dumbest move in 2010, which was leaving while she was sleeping without so much as a goodbye. And let her know that you cared so much that you were willing to withstand my wrath just to make it right. Then repeat after me, word-for-word, “It was without question the best sex of my life,” and you just might get an opportunity to do it again.
