We Like The Same Guy

Dear GZ Advisor - What do I do if my friend and I like the same guy but the guy likes me?  Anna

Dear Anna,

It’s always tricky when you and your friend are involved with the same guy, but the only way to handle the situation well is by being open and honest with your friend. You can prevent a lot of hurt feelings by telling her and being honest about the fact that this guy likes you.  Just go about it gently, and remind her that your friendship comes before any guy.  If she finds out that he likes you, and that you knew but didn’t tell her, she will most likely be very hurt by the fact that you kept something from her.  Just be open and don’t keep secrets!  She will understand.
