It’s hard to explain why you find yourself attracted to someone… but under the right circumstances those feelings of attraction can be acted upon and today’s OPP, Blaire, experienced this phenomenon first hand recently:
“Yi! On New Year’s Eve, I got tipsy and slept with my best friend’s brother. My friend is pretty protective of her brother and always makes snide comments to the girls he dates. I know she’ll freak if she finds out. Neither of us regret it and want to hook up again. How do I tell my friend what’s happening?
Both Slacker and Steve agree that it would be one thing to keep this from the BFF if this New Year’s Eve hookup was strictly a one night stand, but Blaire wants to continue this physical relationship which complicates things even more. Slacker said that if it were him he would keep these activities on the down low. He argues this because he says it’s sometimes hard not to fantasize about a friend’s sibling; so it’s only natural.
Do you think she should tell her best friend?
If it were me in this situation I would hope that my relationship with my best friend would be strong enough so I would be able to tell her things like this. However, the fact that Blaire wants to keep this relationship with her BFF’s sibling strictly physical makes the idea of telling her upfront cringe worthy because surely the best friend wants something more for her brother. In the end though, I think the best thing to do in this situation is… be honest and tell the sister what’s happening.
