Courting Disaster: July 11, 2008
Courting Disaster, my weekly comic about sex, love, and relationships updates every Friday. You’ll laugh your pants off.
This week’s question…
A reader writes… Q: I went to my high school prom with a boy whom I consider a friend, but who I think likes me more than just friends. We had a lot of fun and have hung out since, but only platonically. Recently, he gave my phone number to his best friend, and the best friend and I have been talking, texting and Facebooking ever since. Now, I’ve fallen hard for the best friend. We can talk for hours about subjects that we both like to talk about. I have told him some things I have never told anyone, and he has done the same. The only problems are: One, I don’t know for sure if the first boy wants to be more than friends with me, but I don’t want to hurt him and risk our friendship by dating his best friend. And two, I don’t know for sure if the best friend feels the same way about me that I do about him. I don’t want to risk either friendship, but it is getting harder to hang out with both of them when I like the one that I am not supposed to be outwardly liking. It’s confusing and difficult!
Go on over and offer some advice.
