Agony Aunt

third wheel by ~LoveThisHate on deviantART

It doesn’t matter if you like him more. It doesn’t matter if you’re prettier, nicer, smarter, better than her. Bottom line: if you cannot make him happy like she does, you don’t deserve to be by his side. Yes, you can try to euphemize the situation with banalities like, “It’s complicated,” or “He just doesn’t know it yet, but we are meant to be.” And yes, you can help yourself to the wide-range of literature (instruction manuals, if you will) available out there, How to Seduce a Guy with a Girlfriend, without Incurring the Wrath of Women Everywhere; How to Make Him Fall In Love with You, Even though He Has a Girlfriend; and How to Make His Girlfriend Leave Him So You Can Have Him for Yourself. But really, that’s just prolonging the agony. If he doesn’t feel the same way about you, don’t force it. Celebrate the pain, and move on. Trust me, you’ll thank yourself later.
