The Question Club
My boy, Sharpie have been seeing eachother for a few months. Due to our work situation, we've had to keep quiet until our situation changed. Things are coming to fruition nicely, and soon we can be 'out of the closet' so to speak. The problem is that one of our mutual friends from work, who we both LOVE (as a friend) has a huge, huge crush on Sharpie. She had asked him out many months before we started seeing eachother, and nothing was really said about it after that. She even was dating his brother for a short while. We both thought it had passed under the bridge.|
I couldn't tell her about us, because of the risk of it getting out at work. I already felt bad about lying to her, but what happened next made it worse. She and I went out to dinner, and it came out that she not only still has an interest in him...but a rather devastating crush. She started telling me just how much she liked him, how it killed her to see him at work, how she enjoyed it when he accidentally touched her leg his cute smile, etc. I felt like utter shit listening to her pour her heart out to me. :\
Now, my question is:
What is the best way to tell her without her feeling even more betrayed?
Do you think it would be better if I approached her or if he approached her with the news?
