I have a friend (person A) who isn't a member on here, but there are these two guys who like her. One of them went around telling everyone she was his girlfriend, which she has finally managed to establish that she isn't, but the other one she kind of likes, except one of our friends likes him, and isn't very happy that he likes person A, and is protesting it. Except person A says what she really wants is to be able to be good friends with both of these guys without having to deal with all of this, and the one who she kind of likes wasn't talking to her until two days ago, because rumor got around that he likes her. WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT THIS MESS?!?!?! This has been a cycle for the past two months.

Wow! Let me try to help. For the sake of keeping this somewhat organized, we'll call guy 1 Joe and guy 2 Phil. We all know Joe is interested. He thinks you and the friend, let's call her JJ are a thing, or at least wants you to be a thing. This makes him look needy and frankly, unattractive. I wouldn't go there. With Phil, I wouldn't make a move, for the friendship, but I would tell the other friend, let's call her Suzie, "Look, Suzie, I get you like him, but if he asks me out, I'm going for it." Just to show JJ values her, but isn't going to mess with JJ's own happiness. That is, if you wanna go for it! Best of luck! I hope this makes sense!

Wait-- what? Sorry, I can't really understand what you're saying. I have nothing to do with either of these guys. I just want to help my friend repair her friendship with both of these guys, because what she really wants is to be friends with them without having to be anyone's girlfriend.
