I like this boy, and my friend does too. I liked him before
she did, but I didn’t say anything. He doesn’t like her, and everyone says he
likes me. It’s true that he’s always nicer to me. My friend even notices. What
can I do?
Dear (Not a) Betrayer,
Is all fair in love or war? No. But since this guy is a
crush, not her boyfriend, it is OK for you to keep liking the guy you’ve been
liking. You may decide to bravely tell her, “This is awkward, but I like him
too—as you may have already guessed. Let’s not let this wreck our friendship.”
If you and he do end up going out? Be sure not to brag! Oh, and next time,
maybe you should confide sooner to your best friend that you’re crushing on the
same guy…to avoid that whole who-liked-him-first dilemma.
