How To Get Out Of The Friend Zone With A Guy (And Have Him Chasing You)

Losing a friend sucks, and this reader wants to know what she can do to get her friendship back on track. But, is there anything she can do? There's this guy I had a schoolgirl crush on in high school—we used to be friends, and he was two years older than me. We lost touch until I went to college when he messaged me one day and we resumed our friendship, occasionally flirty but mostly advice and jokes.

He's a great guy, but he has a serious girlfriend I've never met. Fast-forward six months. We are messaging one night when he drunkenly admits that I've gotten hotter since high school and that he felt guilty for wanting to hook up with me but that he wanted to. He was drunk, but since he's my friend I spent close to an hour talking him down, reminding him of his girlfriend and how he's a great guy.

I wound up admitting that I had thought before of hooking up with him and that I liked him a few years back. It's been about a month and we haven't talked since. I've tried to message him and reach out, since we used to talk at least once a week, but he ignores it or sends single word responses. What's the deal?

Where should I go from here? The thing is, I would date him if he were single but I'd never cheat on his girlfriend with him. I just miss talking to him. I don't think you're going to like my advice very much, but I think you need to let him go for now. Hear me out, I don't mean you can never be friends with the guy again. But it seems to me like he's embarrassed and feeling guilty over what he said to you that night he had a little too much to drink.

My take on it is that he has a little bit of a crush on you too, but ultimately, after crossing a line by telling you, he realized he wasn't behaving like the best boyfriend. And he evidently chose to stop doing so, which means he's trying to be a good guy. Getting a little crush on another girl doesn't make a guy a bad boyfriend, but how he handles it does. And he's trying to handle it the right way: He definitely could have handled it a little more kindly to you by at least responding and telling you his deal, but like I said, I sense that he's probably a little ashamed.

Unfortunately, that leaves you, the tempting friend, in the dust. I know it sucks to lose a friend and maybe even more so when it's a friend you have feelings for , but I really think you've done the right thing by this guy so far. You were honest with him about your feelings, but instead of letting it go too far, you reminded him of his girlfriend. It's admirable that you wouldn't want to be a part of his affair.

So I think the only way you can continue to do right by him—and by yourself, because you deserve more than a flirtation with a taken guy—is to let him take some space to figure things out in his relationship. Maybe after some time has passed and he's either ended his relationship, or firmed up his feelings about it and let go of his crush on you, you guys can go back to your friendly ways. But for now, I think you need to let him have his space. Do you think there's anything our reader can do to get this friendship back on track?
