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.
