A friend of mine brought around this girl. I'm going to keep this short but she was out of all of our league but thought we were fun. Basically a dream girl. But my friend called dibs and I backed off.
Eventually they start going out and it's like needles being slowly inserted into my nut sack to watch them. She's also being flirty and sending major IOIs to me the entire time, but in a way that could just be social.
Eventually (five months later), she breaks it off with my friend, it breaks my buddy's heart. Not long after, she texts me to say the break up was because she was interested in me.
This friend is like a brother to me, he's been there for me since third grade.
This girl could be The One. Watching them go out was a new form of torture. I've missed out on girls before but this was something new.
Girl and I have had no contact for 2 months now, and buddy isn't showing any signs of getting over her (he's still trying to get her back) but I hear from friends that she is over him (wondering if it was a mistake to try to stay friends, and she's turning down invitations to hang out with him in her free time) I also hear that she still wants me.
Is there any advice on how to salvage both relationships? Or should I pick one or the other?
