Maybe, knowing how he feels about you, she’ll even broach the topic of you dating him, at which time, you can better gauge what her reaction to that would be.
There’s something back-stabbing about going for him when you know how she feels.The good news is that feelings are fluid, and she will probably move on eventually, especially since she knows he likes you.It would be one thing if you and she met this guy at the same time and both developed crushes on him and he chose you.It still may not be an ideal situation, but there wouldn’t be such a sense of betrayal.Maybe he’ll find someone else who is more available to him.
Maybe you’ll find someone who poses less threat to your friendships.While most of us hoped the elementary-esque days of pining for someone and being unsure of his or her feelings were behind us, adulthood unfortunately seems to have brought on even more dating woes.You'd think growing up would make things less complicated — we're all (seemingly) more mature, so telling someone your ~true feelings~ should be a cinch, right? It seems almost impossible at times to decipher what's going on in your crush's head; we're not mind-readers, but it often feels like things would be a whole lot easier if we were. You've heard it before, in almost every movie ever made: Someone is best friends with someone else for a long time and all of a sudden, bam! Though these themes are problematic and completely undervalue the awesomeness that is platonic, supportive friendships, there's still something to be said for this trope.Having a "crush" on someone as an adult sounds silly, but it happens all the time — whether it's your favorite delivery boy or the gorgeous Starbucks barista, real-life crushes can still happen post-middle school, and they can be just as frustrating.While there's no tried-and-true method for taking a platonic friend or even a total stranger and turning them into bae, it's always nice to have a guide to help you at least sort of know what's going on.Taking note of something as simple as the frequency of eye contact can clue you into your crush's feelings; chances are, they won't bother to meet your eye quite so often if they're planning to keep things platonic.
