POLL: Can't spell BOFF without BFF

Friday, January 06, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Q: I am getting a divorce and finding that I'm in love with my best friend. It seems that the two are related but they are not. I was already at the end of my marital rope when I discovered that my bff was the man of my dreams. He has been my best friend since 1986-7 and is someone that I talk to about everything. He has never interfered in my marriage and I never interrupted his relationships. We were the epitome of a platonic male/female friendship. Some of my friends say I should wait and get myself together first. My close friends say to get my man! If I could turn off my feelings for BFF, then I would so that we can get through this divorce. He has been part of my routine in life for the last quarter century and I am only 39. So what do I do now? I don't want to rebound. I don't want to ruin my longest friendship ever. I don't want to be stuck in something that is a mistake.

POLL: What should she do?
39% (648) Whoa! Hold your horses! If he's been you're BFF since the 80s, he'll still be around in another year.
21% (343) Slow down. You shouldn't date this guy until your divorce is final -- and then wait a little longer.
3% (54) Aw, heck! Go for it. This guy sounds like your soulmate.
1% (18) Go ahead and try it out with the BFF, but keep you other options open, too.
34% (566) You'd better find out how HE feels about all this first.

POLL: Long Distance Roaming Charges

Friday, December 30, 2011 - 08:12 AM

Q.: I've been in a relationship with a person who was a close friend for going on a year now... She goes to school 6 hours away down south, it wasnt a huge issue last year but she would be in touch with me constantly. This year she's always hanging out with other people (usually guys). I 100% trust that she isnt cheating on me but she gets really angry when I get irritated at the fact that she's constantly talking about other guys.

Now she's talking about moving into a house with 3 of the guys and a couple girls next year for their living situation, and she's yelling at me telling me the gender shouldn't matter.

I don't want it to bother me but it does.

POLL: What should he do?
55% (833) Move on. She already has.
6% (102) Hang in there. There's probably nothing going on.
37% (571) Try to strengthen your lines of communication.
