Dark Mode Off / On

Crushes, ah, the tangled web they weave! Picture this: you’ve spotted someone dreamy across the room, plotted the perfect “accidental” meeting, and then… plot twist! Your bestie swoops in and announces they’re cozying up with your crush. Cue the record scratch and the internal scream.

But fret not, my fellow single wingmen and wingwomen! While this may feel like a dating apocalypse, it’s just a minor setback in the grand scheme of your romantic journey. Here’s how to gracefully navigate this twist (with perhaps a splash of tequila for good measure)

Stage 1: Embrace the Feels

First and foremost, give yourself permission to feel whatever emotions come flooding in. It’s natural to feel bummed out—after all, you had grand plans in your head! Take some time to process, vent to your single squad (shoutout to my fellow wingpeople!), and treat yourself to a pint of your favourite ice cream.

Stage 2: Friend or Foe?

Now, let’s assess the situation. Did you ever explicitly tell your friend about your crush? If not, take a deep breath. This isn’t a breach of trust; it’s just an unexpected turn of events. However, if you did spill your heart out to your friend, it’s time for a heart-to-heart. Express your disappointment, but reaffirm your desire for their happiness (because that’s what true friends do!).

Stage 3: Operation: Get Back in the Game

While your friend is busy cozying up, it’s time to reclaim your dating destiny! Don’t let one crush derail your love life. Rally your single squad, swipe with renewed enthusiasm, and remember, the dating world is your oyster!
