Today, my best friend became my ex-best friend. I have finally gotten over the guy she stole from me a year ago and have developed a crush on another guy. My best friend called me today to tell me that she broke up with the first guy and is now going out with my current crush. FML

Aren't best friends, especially girls, supposed to tell each other their crushes and swear not to like the same guy? I smell insecurity on the ex-best friend and stupidity for the OP.

100% true. It's stupid to suggest let alone try to act on a "rule" that states you can't be with someone that your friend likes for that reason alone. OP is trying to stand in the way of her friend's happiness when it's quite likely that the guys involved are actually her type too.

Agreed. If you two are similar enough to be best friends, it's not unheard of that you have similar tastes. Even if you told her you liked him (which I doubt because you seem like the type that would have mentioned it), you don't know that she doesn't genuinely like him too and maybe did before you.

Besides, what if the guy doesn't like you but likes her? Is she supposed to skip a chance at love because you're crushing? Get over it and don't lose what you got because of what you can't have.

EXACTLY. You weren't dating the guy, and it sounds like you weren't really dating the first one. Close friends often have similar taste in guys. I had 2 best friends in high school, one of them liked the same guy I did. We were both crazy about him for over 4 years, and guess what? Our other best friend ended up dating him! In fact they were dating while she and I were college roommates. Can't speak for my other friend, but I personally got over it. Why should your friend not be allowed to date someone you like? By the same rules YOU wouldn't be allowed to date him either, so why not let the poor guy date whomever he chooses?

The timing stinks, and I'm sure it does suck for you, but unless she obviously did it on purpose (doubtful), stop being so self-absorbed, and if you are going to be the one to let it ruin your friendship then she is probably better off without you...

That's not true buddy..
Imagine a world without second chances. That would mean that no one would ever make up. Besides, you tend to forgive "close" friends more often, unfortunately.
