DilemmaI'm in a bit of a situation. There's this guy, Mark, in college, whom I don't like in that way, but I can see myself liking him. He's cute, nice, smart, funny, and Jewish like me. However, I've never had luck with guys, so I'm trying with all my might not to like him because I just know it won't work out. He seems to have great chemistry with my friend, Claire, even though she told me that she's not sure whether she likes him or not. They went to the movies together and Claire has no idea whether or not it was a date. She also told me that she wants to figure out her feelings towards him, so dating might be a possibility.
Here are my options:
1) Avoid Mark like the plague. Then him and Claire will either get together or they won't. If they will, then I'll feel super-jealous, even if I won't like him and I'll be mad at myself for not trying to win him over before. And if they won't, then I can either make a move or things will stay the same as they are now.
2) Flirt with Mark and try to become better friends with him. Then either: a) I'll like him and it'll be mutual (yeah right!), b) I won't like him, or c) I'll like him and it'll turn out that he likes Claire.
What to do?
