“I like the girl in our friend group”

I recently went to Uni, and met this really sound guy who I get on with really well, though we obviously don’t know each other too well as we only met a month or so ago. He in turn introduced me to a girl and us three have been hanging out quite a lot.

Now, I’ve developed quite strong feelings for the girl. However, she and this guy are very close, to the point where I’m unsure whether something is going on behind closed doors (he has a long-distance girlfriend, though he constantly talks about breaking up with her). If I want to pursue the girl, what should my course of action be in order to make sure I maintain my friendship with the guy? I would definitely rather remain friends with both of them than jeopardise it for this girl.

 

“Wedding drama with friends and siblings”

I am recently engaged and am having some issues with a friend. It all starts back in high school. There are four of us who have stayed friends and my friend Kelly is whom I am having a problem with. Kelly happened to date my fiance’s twin brother Jon, in high school and ended up breaking his heart. She also dated a guy named Ben, for two weeks and then broke it off with him too. Ben has now been dating my fiance’s sister Sophie. Small town problems. Continue reading

“Am I jealous of my boyfriend’s friends?”

I am jealous of my boyfriend’s friends. I don’t know why, but last night I was supposed to hang out and then he told me that his friend showed up and is spending the night. I don’t know if it is weird, but I went into his account and read his messages, and he told his friend to come over and they went to go do something.

I don’t know if this is over-obsessive or something, but I felt like he wanted to chill with his friend over me, and then told me he did, but his friend ended up showing up. Can someone tell me if this is weird or wrong for me to feel?

 

“He loves his friends more than me”

I don’t know how to start this, but I think it’s best if you know as much detail as possible.
I’ve been with my current partner for just over two years, I am 23 and he is 19, almost 20. I have a 4 year old son, who’s father is my ex.

At the beginning of our relationship, I discovered he was still actively using a dating app because he was unsure if ‘we’d work out’. He was also deleting messages from his ex. This situation was confronted and quickly forgiven. I absolutely adore him, and as cliche as it sounds, he came in to my life when I needed someone very badly (I suffer with depression). Like I said, I adore him. Continue reading

“Did I miss an opportunity?”

I have been friends with this guy for about 4 years now…when we first met I was 17 and he was 20. Anyway, when we met four years ago, he really liked me, but at the time I was going through a heartache of another crush, unfortunately.

But with time, we became very close, and we continued to talk despite the long distance. He lived in TX and I in IL. However, I secretly began to develop feelings for him too…I never told him. Eventually, we both just agreed at the time to just be friends, because of the long distance. After that, we slowly lost contact. Continue reading

“I’m lonely and I can’t make new friends”

I’m going start off with I’m not crazy psychotic. or anything like that. Now that that’s clear, after searching ‘ask for advice online’ I found this site, and well, I need some advice.

The thing is, I’m just lonely. I tried a ton of websites to meet/make new friends, I’ve tried MeetUp, long story short, there’s nothing in my area. I even thought of volunteering, to meet new people and do some good. After numerous applications filled out, I heard nothing. I don’t have any opportunities to meet new friends in my day to day life, or through my favorite hobbies.  Nor can I even create any, so I’m literally stuck, and have been now for quite a while.

I am not at all happy about it. I should mention that I have a certain mental disorder, that just doesn’t help the matter out one bit, long story, has something to do with how it makes me appear/seem to others and leave it at that.

“I did something really stupid”

I did something really stupid that I probably shouldn’t have done, and now a friend of mine is extremely angry with me. But first, I should probably explain what led me up to this situation.

I met this boy on Instagram back in August or so. We’ll call him G. G lives in England. We started talking more, and by January, there were plans for him to move over here and live with me. Well, he started talking to his other friends about this plan, and he created a group chat with the friends who were willing to come to America with him. The group consisted of G, his girlfriend, some guy we’ll call J, and K. K was a lovely guy. He was sweet, caring, and very cute. We started PMing each other, one thing led to another, and we were in a relationship. A long distance relationship. With distance came desire. We wanted to see each other, and more of each other (if you know what I mean). It was amazing until April. Continue reading

“I’m stuck between two guys”

I am stuck between two people, one who I know a bit about, he’s a few years older than me but he is very sweet and has an amazing personality.

The other guy is someone who I’ve been friends with for several months and we are close as ever. He is sweet and I know he’d treat me right (he’s seen how I’ve been treated in the past) but I’m nervous I’ll ruin my friendship with him. Both like me except my friend told the first guy I like him. And the second guy knows I used to like him. I’m not sure what to do because I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings and I’m scared someone will get hurt. Help!

“Am I being unreasonable about this guy?”

This is a long post, but it’s a long story.

I recently moved back to my hometown after a few years. I also started talking to my ex boyfriend and after a lot of misunderstanding had reached a happy plateau of agreeing to hang out occasionally and as he put it ‘get to know’ one another again. Parallel to this he also in love with a girl at his work who doesn’t seem to reciprocate his feeling and has heavily put him into the friend zone. So I assumed it was safe to build a friendship.  Continue reading

“What happened to the chemistry we had?”

I come from a fairly conservative household. I met “M” on POF and quickly discovered we had ties. Since I lived in an area where there were a lot of us of the same culture, his family and my family had a distant friendship.

He said he was looking for marriage, as was I. We hit it off and started speaking on Whatsapp. Soon after he began to tell me how God answered his prayers sending me, how we meshed so well and how he could not wait to take me home. Continue reading
