I Wanted to Become Her Boyfriend But I Found Out She Likes My Friend

Asked by on with 1 answer:

From a 19 year old young man in Morocco: I wanted to become her boyfriend, but I found out she likes my friend, then I told her we should become friends, yet I still have something for her, and this is causing me a lot of pain, should I continue being her friend? But I can’t handle knowing she loves someone else? What do you suggest?

A.

If you really can’t handle it, then why torture yourself by being close to her? Put your energy into meeting other women. I realize it can be scary to do so but holding onto hope when she has made her feelings clear will only make you miserable. Make yourself available to someone who you can love who will love you back.

I wish you well.
