In the case that you and Mario are starting to date seriously, you will also want to consider being the one to break this to Luigi. it feels like throwing a red shell at him after he’s already spun out on a banana peel.
But the alternative is that he’ll hear it through the grapevine, and then have to face those feelings alone.
Let him know that you’ve noticed the flirting, then tell him how you really feel about him.
If he’s developed feelings for you, then shutting him down is gonna suck, for the both of you.
The bonus to talking about it with individuals is that you can gain some insight.
Getting some bro-perspectives (brospectives) on the matter might reveal feelings among the group you didn’t know were there. And by figure out, I don’t mean go asking everyone what they think.
Dear Pink Hair Girl, Among me and my friends, most of us in our mid 20s, I’m one of the only girls who hangs out in the regular group.
So for the first time in a while I’ve been single for a few months, and to no one’s surprise, some of my guy friends are starting to show signs of liking me as more than just a friend.I’m considering dating Mario secretly, without telling the rest of the group for a while, but then that presents a whole other set of problems.What’s the best way to do this to keep things with my friends going as smoothly as possible?Start talking to them individually about the fact that you’re getting hit on a lot, and express your concern that it might make things awkward down the road.And if opening yourself up to discussion about this doesn’t get any possible Shyguys to come forward, then there’s nothing more you can do for them.Finding out what his deal is will make it easier to take decisive action. Whether or not things pan out with Mario, it’s important that Luigi knows as soon as possible where you stand with each other in terms of romantic feelings.
