K so here's a summary of what's going on... -May 2004, was introduced to a new group of friends (friends of my friends) and we are all now good friends -hit it off pretty good with one girl (lets call her Betty, lol) we talk a lot, hang out alone, etc etc -one of my "friends" at the time (lets call him Douche) liked her for a while but wouldn't give it up even after me and her were doing great, she would call ME, invited ME to do stuff, etc -out of nowhere around Christmas 2004, Betty and Douche start dating... I'm depressed and pissed off for the next few months -we still talk and stuff but it's weird at school because I'm still in their group and have to see them together all the time... -around April 2005 I start hanging out with her a lot again, talking for hours on the phone at night, etc etc -it's now the end of June 05 and I find out shes getting annoyed by him (he doesn't leave her alone), he gets jealous as shit when me and her hang out, he gets MAD for no reason, etc etc So I'm kinda wondering what the hell to do, I REALLY think their relationship will be over soon..... but I don't really wanna be the loser to wait for a girl in hopes that she could go for me (last time she told me we were just friends..... so who knows if that'll happen again) ... The more I hang out with her and stuff, the madder he gets... it's awesome. so should I just act like the good friend until he finally snaps and then she gets pissed off and ends it....? edit: forgot to mention... a month or so ago we went to a social (drinking, music, like a fundraiser for weddings and such) and we were grinding and stuff WHILE she was dating Douche. Idiot friend that was there tells Douche and he is PISSED..... but doesn't say anything to my face, only bitches about me when I'm not there... Betty hears about this and laughs and we both think it's funny.
