Confusion and attraction (8)


1 Name: Sparkle : 2007-12-14 18:18 ID:RvSEh2ER

I really like a guy friend of mine, but I'm really conflicted about it. For starters, he has a long-term girl friend, who I know (she's nice). But I find myself really like him - he's funny, a little awkward, a geek, but an English major/Philosophy minor, so he's articulate and generally intelligent. And I think he's incredibly attractive physically.

He has a long-term girlfriend. Do you really feel that you deserve him so much that you would be willing to break something like that? If you really care for him, then be happy that he's happy. If you can't contain your emotions for him, then you cannot be a good friend for him.

Having been in your position, I can say that you should keep your expectations as low as possible.

Myself, I try put out the sparks, before it turns into a bonfire.

You shouldn't ruin your friendship. If you do anything rash, you'll really regret it and can never go back to how you were.

Try to think realistic, how are the chances that he'll leave his girlfriend for you and would it make him happier?

> If you truly like someone you'd want him to be happy, even if it means that he's with a other girl.

In any generation, there are about eight people on earth who are that selfless.

True... I'm happy that he's happy, but there's always that little wondering in the back of my mind! But being his friend is better than potentially ruining everything.

About half the married people in the world die alone.
