Dating your best friends older brother
I said, “If you say one more word about this I’m placing a tape X over your mouth.” It’s a horrible situation when it goes south and it ain’t that fun when it’s going well.
I think it’s important to remember this is a transition; they are either going to settle in as a couple or not but you’re in the height of all things weird right now—the movie kisses and all that junk.
And though things seem to be going great right now, I can’t help but worry about what might happen if they go south.
I realize fretting about the future is a moot point, but in the meantime, I’m also starting to feel a little left out.
Whereas before I was the connection between them, they’re now closer to one another, in some ways more than they are with me, and I’m having trouble finding my place in this new dynamic. Beforehand, I made each of them pinky swear to keep me out of the loop because my brother was a serial dumper and the friend was the kind of person who NEVER LISTENED WHEN YOU TOLD HER THAT MY BROTHER WAS DEFINITELY GOING TO DUMP HER.
How can I support their budding relationship without being resentful? So they both promised to leave me out of it and then surprise, surprise, he dumped her and she whined to me and when I said, “You’re not allowed to,” she continued.
Maybe it would be good for you also to think about whether or not you’d like to have a relationship in your own life.
I swore I’d never do that and I didn’t for a long time.
But after getting married, having a son, and then getting divorced (my ex is a wonderful father who has custody of our son), I fell for a musician.
I moved to a beautiful small town in the country and Michelle’s the only friend I stay in touch with.
I have no friends in this town and Lord knows I’ve tried. Dear ICQH, After getting your letter I spoke to a couple of counselors I know because honestly this doesn’t fall into my ENORMOUS area of knowing everything about everything.
My best friend just started dating a wonderful guy.
