Question: What do I do when I wanna date my BFF’s crush? I recently started crushing on the same guy, but I don’t know if he likes me or not. I think there might be a chance he does because he wrapped his arm around me and always tries to impress me.
Answer: If your relationship with your best friend is important to you, and it seems like it is, you may want to reconsider this.
Do you think he wants to date you too? Do you see it working out? Or is it possible that this was just flirting? Or that a relationship with your crush would be a lot more short-lived than your friendship?
If you think it is worth risking your friendship, do everything you can to avoid hurting your friend. Sit down and have an honest conversation with her about how you feel about this guy and how she feels in response. Then base your decision off of that.
