Any tips?? Plz help:/


Dear burnse15,

I understand not wanting to hurt a friends feelings, but if he REALLY wanted to date you, then he should be talking to his friend and letting him know that he's interested in you but doesn't want to hurt his feelings. If his friend gets hurt, he's probably not a good friend anyway because you and that guy are not longer together. What claim does this guy have to keep you from dating anyone in the future, even if it's someone he happens to be friends with.

I know you like him and maybe even love him. But it's also not fair to you to be his closet girlfriend. Let's be mature about this. There should be no shame in dating someone who is single. If he's too worried about his friends, chances are he's really too interested in his own ego than he is in you as a girlfriend. Put your relationship out there or put him to the curb.
