My best friend is dating another girl
weren't meant to be, and that she and my friend are good for each other.
We’ve been really close for about five years and over time my feelings for him just get stronger and stronger.I read a ton of questions from you guys every day, and those questions include a lot of relationship problems.One of the biggest relationship issues you guys have?He is truly an amazing man: strong, understanding, and deeply loves his friends and family.He knows I have feelings for him; we’ve discussed them several times before. When he describes what he most values in a woman, they are the same qualities he’s said he loves in me (often word for word).But over the last year, he’s professed to be interested in a mutual good friend of ours. However, she has zero interest in him and has told him that several times.
Also, the qualities that he sees in her are the same qualities he’s told me he dislikes (even hates) in women. Please explain this to me, because I am out of ideas.
The truth is, when it comes to dating and relating, there really are very few black and white answers.
Many times the answers lie in the gray areas, and in the deeper questions. If you’re afraid this new romance will have a major effect on the relationship you have with your friend, you may feel confused, disappointed and frustrated. Figuring out where the dislike is coming from is a good place to start and it can help you know how to pray for the situation and respond to it.
If your friend is in a relationship that diminishes self-esteem, rather than enhancing it, pray earnestly and look for ways to build up and encourage your friend.
Look for an open door to discuss the dating relationship and what you see that may be harmful.
If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at I have really strong feelings for my best guy friend.
