My ex-friend's brother is my boyfriend

Oct 09, 2012, 06:17 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I'm 19 and I have always been the type whose crushes change real quick. All the guys I've liked so far have never shown any interest in me.

I always end up moving on. However, I’ve found this this guy in my neighbourhood. He seems nice and someone whom I can trust. He does not look like he will ditch me for someone more attractive. But there is a problem involved. He’s the brother of a friend I was very close to not very long ago. I don’t want awkward moments when she finally comes to know about us. What should I do?

Dear Samrudhi,
Gosh! At 19 you are leading an extremely complicated life. And your love life is certainly even more complicated. Why do you think so much about being unlucky in love? You are only 19 and at this juncture of your life’s emphasis should be on studies and making a career. You can be friends with guys but why this hurry to be in love? I shudder to think that you will soon be thinking about marriage and babies. All this can wait, my dear girl. About falling for the brother of your ex-friend, things will obviously get messy when she realises. So tread with caution unless he tries to broker peace between you and your once upon a time pal.
