I’m in a really awkward situation. I have a slight crush on this guy. The only problem is he is my best friend’s boyfriend. My crush/her boyfriend is really cute, really nice, and just amazing. I’ve liked him since the 3rd grade. Everybody says that they are ”relationship goals” and ”the perfect couple.” Every time I hear it, I cringe a little inside and come to the understanding that there is no hope in life – make that no hope in my life. I don’t know if it’s all right to have a crush on him. I don’t know if it’s considered being a bad friend. I’m really not sure how I’m supposed to act. Please help me in this awkward situation.
My first reaction is ‘Awwwwww… how sad.’ You definitely are in a very awkward situation. Although I can’t help you out of it, what I can do is give you some things to consider as you make the decision on whether or not to come clean with your friend. First of all, it’s fine to have a crush on him. That is completely fine. Here is how it goes; If you do decide to tell your best friend, he or she may ask you, “Why have you been hiding this from me. I thought I was your best friend.” It’s essential to be prepared for that. Be aware that telling this secret may result in a fight between the two of you. On the other hand, If you don’t tell her, you won’t have to face your friend’s wrath. The only downside of that is if she eventually discovers your secret crush, she will be even more infuriated. Hopefully, this helps you make your decision on whether or not to tell your friend. Just remember, you’re not a bad friend.
