What to do when your BFF is always with her BF
Living the single life is great, but it’s not always great when your BFF isn’t living it with you. Especially when relationships are new, you might start seeing less of your bestie. When she’s all caught up in her new romance, here’s how you can learn to deal.
Make your own plans.
Even though she’s your go-to gal, you can’t just put your life on hold because she’s got a BF. Find other people to spend your time with and make plans. Don’t keep letting Friday nights go by while she’s out on dates.
Don’t let yourself be the third wheel.
This is the most awkward when you’re being left out of conversations or witnessing their PDA. Yuck! When she asks you to do something with them, ask to bring another friend along. There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to be the odd man out.
Become friends with him, too.
If he’s dating your BFF, it’s your job to look out for her. Make an effort to be friendly with him. It’ll be less awk if you guys know each other and are able to have conversations. Bonus if he’s willing to do the same because it shows he really cares about her if he wants to be friends with her friends.
Don’t be jealous.
If you want to keep your friendship try not to show you're jealous, even if you are. Chances are, she wants to spend time with you. Just show her how supportive you are that she found someone who makes her super happy.
Talk to her.
If there’s real a struggle with maintaining your relationship, talk to her. Letting her know that you’re missing time with her will let her know you’d like to spend some one on one time with her.
