My friend and I just discovered that we’re both dating the same boy. I’m not sure what to do or how to react. I know I’m not supposed to be mad at my friend, because she didn’t know. What should we do?
Although this has to seem like quite a predicament since you’re in the middle of it, from the outside the answer is simple — dump him. There’s really no reason to give him a chance to explain, because no explanation justifies dating two friends.The only exception? If everyone involved had agreed to date around and not be exclusive, he really didn’t do anything wrong except very inconveniently (and maybe unknowingly) decide to date two friends.
Whatever you do, don’t let a boy get in the middle of your friendship. Instead of playing tug-of-war, agree to find new guys (and different ones, this time). Regardless of how much either of you like him, he’s had a juggling act going for awhile. Clearly it’s not love on his end, so you will all be better off.
