Or your friend could go a step further and let your crush know that he/she is not interested, even plugging that someone else is.
Explore other social avenues If however you get the hint that your best friend too reciprocates the attentions of your crush, it may be better to ease yourself out of the situation.
At the beginning of the school year, I admitted to my friends that I had a crush on a guy.
I didn’t really know him or talk to him, but for some reason I really liked him.
However it could also be that your friend is merely enjoying your crush’s company but has no romantic feelings for him/her.
In this case you still have a chance and could look for ways to befriend your crush, spend time on mutual interests like sports or music so that your crush may like to value your company more than that of your friend.
All these will not only bring you in touch with more people and thus keep you from thinking again and again about your crush or friend but more importantly enhance your personality so that you will feel attractive and confident from within – all traits that are known for drawing people in social situations.
While you may be pained at your crush choosing your best friend over you, have faith in the popular saying that time is a great healer.
Stay cool Even if you are dying inside to be with your crush, act cool – no making lovey-dovey eyes, giggling in front of him or flirting with her.If at all your crush wishes to make his/her intentions known to your friend, he/she should do it directly and not use you as a crutch.Start connecting with other people in your social circle; frequent places like a pub, hobby club or the college cafeteria where are likely to be many people you know and see if anybody would like to go swimming or biking or to a theater with you.While you needn’t go out of your way to avoid him/her, just don't make yourself visible all the time.Keep your interactions normal but not enthusiastic; for instance when you see him/her in the hall or in a café, say hello but leave it at that.
