"We crave what we can't have , We ignore what we have"


He was a friend. Just a friend. Months, maybe even years earlier, he'd entered the "friend zone" and there was no way to come back from that. Well, maybe just one way. One thing sure to suddenly kick your interest in him into high gear. That thing?'s easy... It's that new woman in his life.She's prettier than you, more fun than you, and everyone adores her. Especially your male friend.
You've never seen him look at anyone the way he looks at her, not even you.

And before she came along he'd had a crush on you forever. Everyone knew about that crush but now he's turned all his attention to her. He can't seem to take his eyes off her. It's disgusting.And you are suddenly, inexplicably, drawn to him.
At first you're stunned. Where did this sudden attraction come from? But then, as you become accustomed to it, you begin to realize that your attraction to this person is completely unfair.

Now that he's found happiness, you've decided YOU want him?You have no right to tell him this. So you sit by and watch as the two of them grow closer and closer. You find yourself thinking of him all the time, wondering if the two of them are really happy together.It's not fair because YOU were there first. You are the one he's meant to be with. And then, one day, your chance comes. He confides in you.

You have a chance to steal him away.Of course you do. It's not the right thing to do, but he's already unhappy, so what can it hurt to guide him a little? To show him that he doesn't really belong with her?Eventually, he leaves her.But if you CAN win him over, what are the odds you're going to live happily ever after? What happens if you realize, once you've "helped" him leave his relationship, that you aren't so crazy about him, after all?

Suddenly, now that he's away from that other woman, you see him the way you saw him before. You see that the two of you don't have all that much in common, after all.But now you're stuck.Have you ever tried to steal someone away from another woman? Once you got him, did you still want him?
