Take it off your chest...

I know who I am. I am an average Jane Doe. My best friend grew up to be beautiful, smart and popular. Everyone knows her and she knows everybody. Some people told me she`s friends with me for the "cheerleader effect" because she looks even prettier when she`s with me. I don`t think this is the case because we have been friends for years and she always treated me nicely, letting me use her make-up or borrow clothes from her. And she always took my side when other people were making fun of me. This one time we were together at a party and a guy came over to her. He introduced himself to her and after she presented herself, she turned to introduce me to him. He shook my hand and said hello without taking his eyes off her. I felt horrible and she also thought it was a lame move on his part because she bitched him about it and then turned around, took me and left him hanging. I really like her. Sometimes I feel unwated envy towards her, especially when people talk only to her, ignoring me. It makes me feel bad, even though she tries to introduce me in the discussion every time. I am conflicted between wanting to hate her for being beautiful and smart but I also like her for how she treats me...

  • Man, I wish I had friends like that. Your friend is a lovely person, no wonder everyone likes her. And you are lucky to have her. It is normal and okay to be a bit jealous, but don't act on those feelings. It is not her fault she is more popular than you. Show her some appreciation, she clearly deserves it.

  • Don't you think that you've got a wonderful personality yourself? It sounds like your friend could have anybody as best friend but she chose you. Even if your sometimes jealous, the way you described her made me like her instantly and that says a lot about YOU. Looks can change, but the personality it a person not neccessarily. Try asking her for beauty tips, try finding clothes and make up that fits your features.
