Imagine being in love with your best friend’s boyfriend.
If you’re anything like me and my best friends, the thought kind of creeps you out. It’s like being in love with a brother.
But the fact of the matter is that your best friend’s significant otherisn’t, in fact, your siblingand the possibility of you falling for him or her is a very real thing. And you can’t even help it! The heart wants what the heart wants, right?
I just can’t imagine anything worse. I mean think about it, the torture of being in love with someone you regularly see, who is completely unattainable, coupled with the guilt that your love for this person is soincredibly wrong and disloyal to your best friend in the whole wide world, the person who’s the most loyal to you. It sounds like a total nightmare.
