“It kills me that my friend is dating my crush”

I’ve been spending a lot of time with this new group of people that I really enjoy hanging out with, which is great because I had been feeling a little bit insecure with my friend group before I met them.

One of them I have become very close to, and one of the others is a boy I used to have a VERY MINOR crush on in tenth grade. It turns out he’s a great guy, and I felt myself becoming attracted to him again, but he started dating another girl (who I am friendly with) and when that went south and he was a mess, and I comforted him often.

My other friend, Elaine, who I’ve become close to, confessed to me that she had feelings for him, and I told her it was understandable. They are now seeing each other and it kills me a little. I know what I have to do, but I’d love some confirmation. Thank you internet.

    Get busy and avoid them if possible. I mean really busy. Exercise will help too. It clears the mind and brings you back to reality and being able to see the big picture.

    i’ve been in a very similar situation and it is shitty i started doing a lot of exercise and that helped a lot it clears the mind and i moved on just find someone you can speak too openly and be more confident if this relationship doesn’t end well dont wait for another reason on why you cant ask him out ask him out i have learnt from these mistakes there was a girl i helped but never asked out and that was a bad idea in the end she is still dating the same guy for 2 years maybe i had a chance maybe i didnt but it would of been nice to know
