MY BOYFRIEND’S BESTIE
My boyfriend and I have been together for about four months. He’s great, but his best friend is so cute and I actually think we would be better suited together. I know how awful I sound, but I’m struggling to handle these feelings and I can’t do anything about it because everyone will hate me. HELP ME! – Meg, 17. KIM SAYS:
You don’t sound awful and this is something that happens all the time. My advice would be to stay with your current boyfriend and see if your feelings continue to get stronger for his friend. If you focus on your boyfriend, your feelings for his friend might pass. If your feelings for his friend do get stronger, you’re probably not in the right relationship. Try to put yourself in your boyfriend’s shoes and think how you would feel if he had feelings for your best friend. Love triangles between friends can cause a lot of hurt and never seem to end well. Sometimes it’s best to be strong and move on to something, or someone, completely new.
