I met Jonathan a few days before my best friend Bekky met him too. The very first day I met him we didn’t really get to talk, but merely exchanged contacts and I was indeed astonished by how calm and responsible he was. We got talking later on, nothing personal though and I realised he was also very intelligent and smart. To top it all, he works in one of the big four auditing companies in Lagos, lives in a very comfortable apartment and drives a really nice car. So it’s almost impossible for a guy like this in Lagos to be calm, level headed and responsible to a fault.
So I decided to find out more about him and discovered he’s single and the girlfriend recently broke up with him. As a lover of love stories that I am, I was already playing the whole scenario in my head and secretly praying to God that he gets to love me too and start a relationship with me. While all this was going on in my head, I didn’t think it was necessary to mention this to my friend who was already romantically involved with Jonathan’s best friend in the office.
It turned out that my best friend broke up with the so called colleague and actually wanted Jonathan instead. According to her he is smart, intelligent, financially stable and from a very rich family in lagos. She on the other hand is a very intelligent and pretty young lady and it is almost impossible for any guy to turn her down. I was very confused and was caught in between telling her about my secret love for Jonathan too or just to keep quiet about it. Well I did the later and have regretted it ever since.
She was able to coerce me into linking her and Jonathan up since I had a direct contact with him and because she was ignorant of my feelings for Jonathan. Now they go out on dates, even though Jonathan seems not to be interested in her, and according to her too, he’s not her regular kind of guy as he’s not very social and doesn’t club. He has not asked my friend out yet and has mentioned it that he’s not dating her. But she is very determined to make things work out between them because of how financially stable he is and because of his wealthy family background.
So I am just lost in the middle of all of this, not happy with my best friend but can’t tell her why. I also become uncomfortable in the midst of other friends with my best friend and Jonathan there too.
Please what do you advice I do, break them up and become sworn enemies with my best friend of many years who has been very good to me or just endure the heartbreak I feel every time I see them together.
P.S: Jonathan is very fond of me and seems to enjoy my company too. And his Ex-girlfriend recently got back into the picture and is trying to fix things between herself and Jonathan.
