The answer is easy: you step in and do whatever it takes to break them up. Next question?

As Shannon was single, the three of us hung out together quite a lot and even holidayed overseas together. Little did I imagine, then, that they would betray me by getting together behind my back.

Under the influence

I was surprised because I had no clue that she was seeing anyone. I invited her out for a drink that night so that I could find out more.

I learnt that Shannon and her man had only been together a few weeks. She refused to tell me his name or how they met; only revealing that they had been friends for a while. As lame as that excuse was, I tried to be supportive of my friend because I wanted her to be happy.

What if i don't like the person my best friend is dating?

I could see how much she loved him, and besides, she told me that the guy was close to breaking up with the other woman. I honestly had hope that things would work out for her in the end and urged her to hang in there. Around this time, I also began to notice that Eric was never available whenever I invited him out to meet Shannon and me.

In fact, whenever I told him that I was going to be with her, he would look annoyed and tell me that I was spending way too much time with her. I also noticed that Eric and I had grown emotionally apart, but put this down to the fact that he was stressed at work. I decided to launder and return them to him.

How to deal with a guy whose bff is a girl

As I was emptying the pockets, a couple of written notes slipped out so I picked them up and read them. Almost immediately, I felt like someone had punched me in the gut. The notes were love letters — from Shannon! I fell to the floor, shocked and confused. From the notes, I gathered that Eric and Shannon were in love with each other and planning to be together. Shannon had also expressed guilt about lying to me and betraying me.

My confusion gave way to anger. How could the two most important people in my life do this to me? I knew I had to cut ties with them, but first, I wanted answers.

I got Shannon and Eric to meet me the next day for coffee. Shannon kept pressing me to tell her what I wanted so urgently to say, but I told her that I would open up more the next day.

Finally, the time came to confront my friend and my boyfriend. Sitting in the cafe, I pulled the handwritten notes out of my bag and placed them on the table. All Shannon could say was sorry, and Eric said that he had been waiting for the right time to tell me the truth. As much as I wanted to cry, I told myself to keep my feelings under wraps. When I asked them how they could betray me like that, neither of them could give me an answer.

And with that, I tore up their love notes and threw the shreds of paper at them before walking out of the cafe, my eyes filled with tears. Over the next couple of days Eric pretty much stayed away from me, but Shannon messaged me incessantly, offering her apologies and wanting to know if there was a way we could be friends again. I simply ignored her messages.
