Cliff's at bottom. And before anyone asks, we're all graduated from college, in our early to mid 20's. I'm sure a lot of you have been in this situation before, so please help me out a little bit here. I met this girl probably about 6 months ago, and we've become pretty good friends since then. In my eyes, that's all we are. Friends. I'm just not interested in a romantic relationship with her at all. She hasn't ever come out and told me that she likes me, but it has become painfully obvious recently, to the point that even my friends notice it. I haven't felt like I can bring it up since I didn't "officially" know that she liked me, but after tonight I feel like I need to. I went out to dinner with her and a bunch of friends tonight, and it just so happens that this girl I am interested in (let's call her Stacy) came with my friend that likes me (we'll call her Sarah). Now, Sarah knows that I'm interested in Stacy, because I've told her. I was disappointed because the first 2 times I met Stacy, I never really had a good opportunity to ask for her number, so I definitely didn't want to miss the opportunity tonight. After we ate dinner, we went back to another friend's house, and I got the perfect opportunity. Stacy and I were in the living room by ourselves talking because everyone else was back in the back doing something else. Sarah came in there twice to try to get us to come back and hang out with everyone else. Come on, it's obvious that we wanted to hang out by ourselves, she had to know that. She had to know the reason I purposely stayed up there was to talk to Stacy. Especially since she knows that I'm interested in Stacy. Total cockblock attempt. Sarah finally left and we started talking again. I asked Stacy if she was single, she said yes, so I asked if she wanted to get together some time. She said she would, but it would be weird because of Sarah. Since I didn't "officially" know, I was like . We talked about it for a little bit and I explained to her that Sarah had never told me that, and that I wasn't interested in her that way, etc. Stacy told me that if Sarah started dating someone else that we could go out (which is like a death sentence because Sarah never dates). But basically she acted like she would be interested in going out if it wasn't for Sarah. So anyway, how do I bring this up to Sarah? Or do I just wait it out and not say anything? I realize that even if I do tell her it isn't going to just immediatly make her feelings go away, but I still feel like she needs to know so she can at least start moving on or whatever. But I don't want it to ruin our friendship, not just because we're friends, but also because I've become friends with a lot of her friends, too. What should I do? Cliff's Notes: My friend Sarah has a crush on me. I have no romantic interest in her whatsoever, but I do like her friend Stacy. However, Stacy won't date me out of respect to Sarah, so now I don't know what to do.
