Original Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Male
There is this girl, that I have realy liked for like 2 years. She is my best female friend, we have alot in common. We are fairly close, we flirt, she shows affection towards me, her family likes me, and I would like to go out with her, the only problem is she has a boyfriend of almost 2 years . I wouldn't care if she seemed happy, but she often seems upset, her family and friends don't like him, and he cheats on her. Yet, after every fight and every time he breaks her heart, she goes back to him.
I don't know if I should tell her how I feel because she has been in that relationship for a long time and I think if I told her how I felt it might change our friendship.

Work at it
If you care about her man. Speaking from a slightly similar experience especially how she is your best female friend, then WATCH HER BACK. Dont break up the relationship.Dont manipulate.But MAYBE tell her that as somebody who cares for her that she should have somebody who will treat her right. Dont say AS A FRIEND though.
