It happened to a very good friend of mine and she didn't know what to do. They were all working together and the three of them were good friends before my friend and and the boy became an item. The trouble started when the other girl started calling the boy for every little thing, asking for his help etc. Although the boy did not take it seriously since they were all friends, my friend started to get annoyed and confided in me that so and so was becoming a problem and was coming between her and her BF. I told her not to make an issue of it, because she was also a good friend and not to show her jealosy to her BF. Anyway, to make a long story short, things came to a point where the couple was always fighting with each other, the two girls who were the best of friends became the worst of enemies and sadly the threesome parted ways. What would you have done in such a situation?

Well, i'd probably rip her into pieces. Kidding aside though, I am wondering if any decent friend would ever do that to someone else's boyfriend. And if anyone ever attempts to do so, then you might seriously want to reconsider her if she's worth being called your best friend in the first place.

You're quite right abbypringles. Wonder why the BF did not put a stop to it. He could have shown his displeasure at what she was doing or being a good friend, could have advised her not to do it. Maybe theres more to it than I knew. thanks for your response.

Yes! If such an incident like this happens and I have figured out that both parties willingly participated. Then, i'd dump both my boyfriend and my supposed "best friend" because I feel like i don't deserve to be embarrassed and trashed like that. I know my worth and I think that's what everybody else in the same situation needs to realize.

I would have told both of them right up front how i felt. The girl had no buisness doing that. I think she was up to no good by doing that.

Yes of course, she definitely had no business doing what she did. I think she was hitting on the boy. A girl always knows these things by instinct and who knows maybe the boy encouraged her too. Thanks for your reply.

Thanks for the best response. your friend didn't need either one of them in her life. I hope she is not too hurt by what they did. She's lucky she found out about them as soon as she did. Have a great day.

I would have came right out and asked her if she was interested in my boy friend. If she said no I would want to know why she had to call him all the time. I would also ask him if he knew what was up. I believe if you want to know the answer to a question then you have to first ask the question.

You are quite right mrbranan. Best friend or not she should have known where to draw the line. I think my friend was feeling embarassed to talk to ber best friend directly and maybe that's why she confided in me. But these are not things that outsiders can intere with. Except for my friend, I knew the others only vaguely. thanks for responding.

I hope this would not happen to me.. It is very sad and it would really hurts me. If she is a good friend she will not show some interest to her best friend's boyfriend. She is a _____ haha if she show some interest to the guy. I really hate those girls.. Why they don't find some other guy who is not committed. If I were your friend I will stop talking to her and never ever want to see her again.... :)
