So I met this awesome girl a few weeks ago and we really hit it off. She knows that I like her and would like to pursue a relationship and she said she likes me too. The problem is that one of her best friends, who I have zero interest in, likes me. Now the girl I like doesn't want to give it a chance out of respect for her friend. How do I fix this? I started out being friendly with the friend just because I wanted to get the seal of approval. Should I cut the friend off completely? Any advice would be much appreciated, I really like this girl and I don't want to have to walk away from something that could be great, especially since opportunities like this are few and far between for me.
