For­bid­den friend­ship

Girlfriend - - GF ADVICE -

My best friend is a guy and we al­ways get com­ments like “you two should date”, and it’s so frus­trat­ing. We’ve tried dat­ing, but it was hor­ri­bly awk­ward for the both of us. To make things worse, his mum doesn’t let him hang out with me be­cause she thinks we like each other. We still meet up on the week­ends, but I feel so guilty be­cause he lies to his mum about it. What can I do?

In­no­cent

It is so sad that you have to go be­hind his mum’s back to have a friend­ship and that he is forced to lie. That won’t work for ei­ther of you long-term, so my sug­ges­tion is that you both sit down openly and have a chat with his mum. It would be good to find out what it is she is wor­ried about. Once you have this in­for­ma­tion, all you can do is ex­plain that you hate sneak­ing around and would pre­fer to be up­front with her – and that you are just friends.
