Advice from Melissa: I want to date my BFF’s brother
I need some advice. I really like my best friend’s brother but when I talked to her about it she said it would make her uncomfortable if we dated. She said that if things ended it would put her in an awkward position because she is so close to both of us. I really like him! What do I do?
Keeping it in the family
Your friend may have a point. If she knows that it would put her in an uncomfortable position, then you should respect her honesty. Clearly she wants both you and her brother to be happy and if she thought it was a good idea she’d give you her blessing. Cherish the friendship, respect her wishes and listen to her reasoning. There are plenty of fish in the sea. Find one that won’t complicate or potentially ruin your friendship! Maybe you two should go out and she can help you find someone else to crush on!! Good luck!
