What to do when your best friend is dating the girl you like
There are a few different things that happened during the time I was newly separated that caused me to classify myself as temporarily psychotic, one of those being when I figured out "my ex is dating my friend! I seriously felt like I was going to go insane. Here was a woman who I thought was my good girlfriend. We had gotten together a few times and I had told her things -- personal things about my ex and our relationship, why I was getting divorced, etc. I shared things with her and trusted her. Weeks later, I saw my ex leaving her house.
Now you want to take your relationship with her to the next level — as a girlfriend, or a secret lover, or a friend-with-benefits, etc. This article will explain why, and what you should do instead, to make more girls like you and turn it into a first or second date… when all you have is their phone number. Ultimately they want someone to talk to or have conversations with, not develop a relationship with someone via text. Have you ever gotten into a text session with a girl that lasted several hours, and spanned dozens of texts? Long story short: Going into long text sessions will only kill your chances of getting a date with her.
The first kiss my boyfriend and I shared as friends-who-now-know-they-like-each-other was nothing short of terrifying. I pulled him into what I thought would be a sweeping, spark-filled smooch and he just stood there, hardly moving. The rest of the date was even more catastrophic. We nervously drank too much and watched Sweet Home Alabama on his bed without looking at each other.
It all comes down to how your friend feels about it. You were a good friend and kept your feelings to yourself for long enough. It was a mutual breakup with no hard feelings.
