How To Be Just Friends

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

This guy that I used to like gets so mad at me when I talk to other guys. I don't know how to tell him that I don't like him anymore, but I really want to. He tells me that I have something going with this guy that just happens to be my best friend's boyfriend.


It really makes me mad because I am just friends with this guy, and I would never do that to my friend. What should I do?




Dear Blair,

It seems you need a quiet time to sit down with him and have him really listen to you. Tell him you have something difficult to say and you need his attention. Let him know you think he is a great guy, and you've learned a lot being with him, but it's time for both of you to move on in separate directions. Wish him all good things. Put yourself in his position and try to say as many positive things as you can. Do not say anything negative. This needs to be done face-to-face so he sees you are sincere.


Being honest in a situation like this is always best.
