Best friend dating my brother
That’s not to criticise your reaction or suggest it’s unreasonable for you to feel this way.Just to encourage you to think about why this fills you with dread rather than it being a cause for celebration?Honestly, I feel a bit weird about it myself, but I really love him (and I know he loves me), and I know that the longer the relationship lasts, the less weird the age gap is going to seem.He and I fit together in a way I've never experienced with any other person (I've had plenty of experience, including several serious long-term relationships)."I was nervous to ask my friend if I could date his brother.Knowing I had to tread lightly, I told him I thought his brother was attractive, and I wanted to get know him better. He said he appreciated me being upfront about it and just telling him what was going on.” —: If you’re going to go for a friend’s brother, honesty is the best policy.I was sooooooo mad, but instead of being mean, I just told them again that it made me uncomfortable. Whenever I’m with her, all she does is talk about my brother and their dates, or texts him nonstop and barely pays attention to me. Your brother and best friend were wrong to go behind your back and start secretly dating, and they’re also wrong to flaunt their relationship in your face knowing how uncomfortable you are with the situation.When she comes to my house, she insists on hanging out with him too, and I always have to give them alone time to make out. And, by the way, it’s totally understandable for you to feel awkward about the two of them dating.
One day my friend was out and I ended up spending the whole day with her brother and it just kind of ... Since then, we've been spending as much time together as possible, and texting whenever we can't see each other.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.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.It seems stupid not to pursue something simply because of the age difference.
