Hey guys

So I'm really confused about a girl i've been friends with for a while now. We've been friends for about 5 months now, and we've hung out a lot and we really enjoy each others company. The thing is, about a month ago I broke up with my girlfriend and I find myself attracted to my friend now. I really just cannot stop thinking about her.

Here's the problem, I know for a fact that I'm not the type of guy she goes out with, so my chances of being with her are slim to none. The problem is I just can't deal with her when she talks about dating other guys, sleeping with other guys, etc etc. It's incredibly painful to sit there and discuss guys she likes and whatnot.

I don't want to stop being her friend, because I REALLY enjoy spending time with her. We've actually become really close. However it's so hard to sit back and watch her date other guys, that I think that maybe I should save myself anymore heartache and slowly, but surely, end our friendship. But just thinking about doing that makes me sad to think that I won't talk to her or spend time with her.

I'm really asking for advice here. It might be such a dumb problem, and I apologize if this seems so highschoolish and silly, but I'm really straining my brain going over this. Thanks in advance guys.

I can't believe you asked this in the Pit. I mean, it's a serious thing to deal with, and I get that you want people's opinions, but...this is like asking /b/ if you should let your fifteen-year-old daughter start dating.

Yeah go to the relationship thread. You may see a situation just like yours in there. You'll probably also get better responses.

Not really, there's a relationship thread.

Not much you can do except join the people in the friend zone line.

This. It sucks, but there's not much you can do. Try finding someone else to be infatuated with. That usually helps, but that often adds its own problems.
