Mutual love is a wonderful gift from life. However, life sometimes puts us in a completely different situation. For instance, when a woman falls in love with a married man or allows herself to flirt with a man other than her husband.

Such relationships can go on for years. But more often than not, people prefer to hide and suppress their forbidden feelings.

A user of one forum described her predicament to get advice on what to do:

I am in love with my best friend's husband. He also likes me but never said anything as such. Should I propose him?

For once, the commenters were unanimous in their opinion: the woman must deal with her feelings, forget about the man, and better still – stay away from the couple for a while. Otherwise, what sort of a best friend is she?

Relationship coach Mila Levchuk recommends women in such situations to see their friends’ partners as asexual creatures and silently focus on their negative traits if a desire to be with them is too strong. Another good option is to imagine yourself in the place of the friend, whose happiness is at stake, and try to understand what she may have to go through.
