I have a friend, let’s call her A, she’s going out with this boy called B, but she told me that when she was still single, there was a guy called C that she liked, and she thought he liked her too.
Despite the obvious attraction, nothing ever happened, so she got together with B, kind of forgot about the other dude, and C even got himself a girlfriend.
But every now and then C pops back into her life and she feels like a little girl when she seems him, she tries very hard to act casual, keeps touching her hair and she probably even blushes when he leans over to speak to her.
But anyway, she asked me what should she do, leave B that she’s perfectly happy with and maybe pursue something that will never happen? Or forget about C forever and wonder every day what it could have been like?
Mate, I’m no agony aunt, so I told her something cheesy like ‘follow your instinct’, and then it reminded me of The Flirts for some reason.
