What to do when your friend is dating your crush
In this way you can talk about the degree to which it is important to you and how you want to respect each other’s feelings.You may also want to agree to not flirt with the person in front of the other person so as to not create feelings of jealousy or competition.
You don’t own either of them and are not entitled to keeping two people apart just because you have a crush.Going on a few dates does not a relationship make so expecting that friends shouldn’t date the person after you stop dating is a bit unrealistic and immature.That being said, it would also be tacky of a friend to flirt or pursue someone immediately after you stop seeing them. It would also be wise to ask a close friend how they feel about it before proceeding forward.If you wait six months to a year (or until they are in a new relationship) you might find them to be more understanding but it is still tricky.If you ask how they feel about the idea of you dating their ex before you do it they’ll at least feel that you cared enough to ask first.Have they suddenly started to care more about their appearance or who you’re romantically involved with?
If the answer is yes to any of the above, then there is a good chance that your friend is crushing on you.
Again the best practice is to talk about it first with your friend so you can sense how big of a violation this might be to them.

Remember that respect is essential to all friendships.
