Tuffy Luv Doesn't Think You Want This Threesome

Question?! Answer: Ask Tuffy Luv. tuffyluvcc [at] gmail [dot] com
Dear Tuffy Luv,
I hate my boyfriend’s best friend / roommate. I think he’s really weird. He seems like he’s always trying to steal my boyfriend’s attention. I don’t get it. I’m not saying he’s in love with him, but I think he’s in like with him if you know what I mean. They’ve been best friends since high school, so I don’t want to come between them, but it’s getting really annoying. Sometimes I want to hang out with my boyfriend one on one, and his best friend tags along, and my boyfriend is too nice to say anything. Weird. What do I do?

Dear Can’t Stand Him,
Yeah, like, you don’t want to be a third wheel on your own date. I do think it’s totally sweet that your boyfriend is trying to include his friend, but I hate to see you end up in some creepy threesome you don’t want to be a part of. Here’s my advice: Tell your boyfriend.
I know. You’re totally scared to do it. And Aunt Tuffy would be, too. But there are ways of saying it nicely, yes? For instance, instead of saying: “Floop your flooping friend and his weirdash shoop,” you could try, “Baby, I want to make time for your friend, but we need some time for just the two of us too.” And then make sure you include Annoying Dude into some of your non-date activities together.
Not making out, for instance. But mayyyyyyyybe lunch once in a while. Or invite him to a party you’re going together. See? Times you won’t care too much if he’s there. Then everybody wins! You get points for being supportive, your boyfriend gets to feel good about inviting his friend, and the friend doesn’t have to be a lonelyhead.
And maybe the guy will get a significant other that you’ll like, and you can double date for much less painful interactions. Or, like, he’ll get a significant other and leave you the floop alone. Either way.
Hearts & Skulls,
Tuffy Luv
