If they pick you as one of their secret crushes, you both get notified.You can add any of your Facebook friends even if they haven’t created a Dating profile, the company said.Facebook Dating still isn’t available in the United States.But in the five countries where it launched already — and the 14 more that are joining the service today — there’s a new way to see which friends might be romantically interested in you.Ahead, find out how you can deal with this type of situation and move forward to mend what might be a broken heart.1. It can be easy to second-guess your emotions and wonder if you’re being overdramatic, but Hasha wants you to know that no matter what you’re feeling, it’s completely understandable.“Feelings like anger, hurt, jealousy, mistrust, sadness, and loss are totally expected in a situation like this,” she explains, with the reminder that we’re all unique, and therefore experience negative situations in different ways.2.Try talking it out with your friend, especially if they knew you liked the person.If you had spent a lot of time chatting with your BFF about your crush, it can feel extra confusing if something starts brewing between them.
“It may simply take some time to get used to the idea of your friend and love interest being together, and that's perfectly normal.” She also advises that you communicate this to your friend as well, and explain that you might just need some time and space.
She suggests leading with the following: “Hey, I'm not sure if you knew, but I really liked [name of person].
I'm happy that you two seem to have found happiness together, but please understand it may take some time for me to feel comfortable with it.”5.
According to Hasha, any type of communication is better than none at all.
If your friend wasn’t aware of your crush, you might need to explain where you’re coming from a bit more, but it’s still a good idea to share.
