He is eight years older than I am
I have a friend. He’s eight years older than me and we started being FWBs a while back. Now he’s dating one of my best friends but when we’re together he still wants to be FWBs. My friend and I still argue a lot but I don’t want to hurt her. I still like him though What do I do? – Confused & Upset
Dear Confused & Upset,
I am very tempted to recommend a threesome (please see previous entries from the Sarcastic Sage); however, I don’t think people should take the easy (and fun) way out. It is important to go through hardship in order to build character and learn life lessons. In order to do so, you’ll need to redefine some concepts. For example, if you constantly argue with “one of your best friends”, then perhaps it’s time to come up with a new label for her.
You certainly are in a pickle–it is tough to figure out what to do exactly when it comes to sleeping with a guy that is dating one of your best friends. If you had just one best friend, it would be an easier decision, since you couldn’t risk losing the one and only best friend.
There is another way to look at this situation. Have you considered that by continuing a FWB relationship with this gentleman, you are helping your friend postpone being defiled by him? You may be doing her a big favor. She’s getting all the wining and dining without having to put out. I don’t think she can ask for a better friend.
Would you like terrible advice? Why not ask the Sarcastic Sage?
