Dear Jo: Feelings for a Friend

I know what you want to hear: “it’s a classic romantic comedy set-up where you’re in love with your best friend and the only thing keeping you apart is that they’re dating someone else.” But that’s just not the reality of the situation you’re in, love.

Dear Jo,

I have feelings for a guy who has been in a relationship with someone else for a long time. However, I hangout with him a lot and sometimes think deep down he may feel the same way about me. We would consider each other pretty close friends. Whenever I see this guy and his girlfriend together, their relationship doesn’t make sense. It’s almost like it’s stagnant. Should I tell this guy how I feel? Should you ever tell someone you have feelings for him/her when that person is in a relationship?

Sincerely,

Feelings for a Friend

Dear Feelings for a Friend,

First, I want to start this letter by saying– I have been there. And I start my letter this way because the advice I have to give is not what you want to hear.

I know what you want to hear: “it’s a classic romantic comedy set-up where you’re in love with your best friend and the only thing keeping you apart is that they’re dating someone else.” But that’s just not the reality of the situation you’re in, love.
