My best friend has recently started dating my brother.I care for them both deeply so why am I feeling so bad about them getting together? I can’t say I disapprove for fear of losing them both.
When you start to date your best friend, you gain a lot: a protector, undeniable confidence, and a feverish determination to make your relationship work. Read on to find out why taking on the challenge is a tough feat, but at the end of the day, totally worth it.
You don't need to bother trying to read your own best friend's mind because you already know what he or she is about to say.
Follow these few steps for an easier “my best friend is a girl” induction process.
If you’ve ever been romantic disclose that information and where things are now.
Like this, “I have a dog, I live in an apartment in Queens, I work at a bakery, I have a son, and my best friend is a girl.” Yeah, we know that seems weird, and it’s probably going to be hard, but if you want to continue your friendship your new relationship this is absolutely vital.
Take it from the girl whose guy best friend just royally failed at this, it’s not that hard. Your female best friend needs to be a part of your discovery conversations with your new girlfriend.
If you’re afraid your best friend will blow your cool guy rep [by telling all of your worst day ever stories], tell her what you do and don’t want shared. But every once in a while, try to include your best friend in your plans. This lets your friend decide if she wants to join or if she feels like the third wheel. Share the things you’re doing and the places you’re going. Look for similarities between the girls you love the most. Give your friend a reason to like your new girlfriend. We know you’re trying to put your best foot forward. We’re already worried you’re going to dump us now that you’ve got a new woman in your life.
Just because they did it in Friends, it doesn’t mean it’s OK in real life, guys.
If you find yourself starting to fancy your mate’s ex, you need to ask yourself whether it’s simply lust cravings for human contact or something more.
Often it’s hard to tell the two apart, especially if you’ve not been in a relationship or hooked up with anyone in a while.
Ask yourself if they were describing the same relationship but with different people would you still be feeling anxious or using words like ‘disgust’?
