Dear Diana,
I'm a 20-year-old college student and I'm surprised to find that two of my best friends are in love with each other. I'm happy for them, but it's weird to be around friends who used to be friends and now are in a serious relationship. I don't know why I'm feeling so awkward when I should be happy that they've found love in each other. Is something wrong with me? Also, I'm single and have never been in a relationship.

Dear Aastha,
It is absolutely natural for you to feel awkward now that the two of them are lovers. As their equations with each other have altered, your equation with them is bound to go through transition. You should try spending some time with them individually and tell them how much you miss their friendship. I am sure they will make an effort to make you feel comfortable. Until then, be happy for them, go out and meet people to find that someone special in your life.

Dear Diana,
I am 26 and working in a travel agency. A year ago, my boyfriend cheated on me with my best friend and I swore to never speak to either of them again. She tried to talk to me for months, but I never gave in. Recently, a mutual friend told me that he cheated on her too. I hate her for doing what she did to me, but at the same time I feel bad for her because I have been in the same situation. What should I do?

Dear Lavanya,
You clearly still care for your pal and you should let her know that now. She let a guy ruin the friendship between you and her and at what cost. Now that the good-for-nothing is finally out of her life, you should try to mend your friendship with her. You two now have something in common. Apart from sharing your sob stories, move on and start anew. Next time be wary.
