My two best friends just started dating. They've been dating for like a month now and I swear they've maybe gone two days outta that month without seeing one another. Whenever we all hang out they are cuddling and holding hands every chance they get. I think they are very cute together and I really hoestly could see them lasting and getting married and such.
When two of your close friends start dating, and you are left out, the last thing you should do is hate on them. Last week, Modern Manners Guy Facebook friend Lilly emailed me about how two of her closest friends, Sarah and Kiel, recently started dating, and now she felt left out. So what is she supposed to do, now that her group of three became a group of two? I told Lilly that this is not something new: friends in a group starting a romantic relationship separate from their peers. Our email exchange went back and forth, with me offering advice about how to properly handle the situation. So, before your table of three becomes a table of one and you end up drinking for a table of four , check out my top three quick and dirty tips for how to handle close friends who start dating, leaving you as the third wheel: Tip 1: Be Happy for Them!
What to Do If Your Best Friend Starts Dating Your Crush
The first kiss my boyfriend and I shared as friends-who-now-know-they-like-each-other was nothing short of terrifying. I pulled him into what I thought would be a sweeping, spark-filled smooch and he just stood there, hardly moving. The rest of the date was even more catastrophic.
Several years ago, I started dating my best friend. At the time, it made perfect sense. We were inseparable, we had so much in common, we were extremely close, and when we realized we had feelings for each other that surpassed being just friends, it seemed almost silly not to date each other. Especially since we were both single and had been single for a while — a factor that we didn't take into consideration as something that was weighing heavily on our decision. Needless to say, it didn't work out.
