My Best Friend Is All Over My Boyfriend

QMy best friend has a major crush on my boyfriend (she told me before we started going out.) The problem is she comes everywhere with me and him and she's all over him. How do I tell her to back off nicely??

AWell, first you indicated that she is your best friend, so obviously her friendship means a lot to you. Why did you want a relationship with the boy she likes anyway? That almost definitely will cause major tension between friends. It can even end a friendship.

But if you really like this guy anyway, you should have a talk with your friend and explain to her that even if she does have a crush on him, he is your boyfriend, and that you really can't stand it when she flirts with him.

You should also make plans with him, and not invite her. If she has the tendency to invite herself, don't tell her about your plans with him until after they happen. If she gets upset that you aren't inviting her, tell her that you like to be with him alone sometimes, and that you and she can still do things just the two of you, also.

Do things with them separately, but make sure not to always seem like you are choosing your boyfriend over her, either, because that can really hurt her feelings.

I hope that everything works out for the best.
