Is it ok if i get caught up in my friends romance?

my friend likes this guy and i can tell he likes her back. i am a total sucker for a romance story. i dont have a romantic life(ive never had a boyfriend) is it ok to live their romance as if it was my own?

Living your life vicariously through someone else is not advisable for the long run.

It may lead to you living in a fantasy world and may be detrimental to positive mental health. You should go on a dating site if you are old enough, though I do not recommend them, or you can ask your friends if they will help you meet people that you may have an interest in.

But your friends romance is her romance, it is not yours...

Ok jb, that makes a big difference, if you are 13 you have your whole life to fill with romance and fairy tales, don't be in a rush to grow up, it will happen soon enough...

I know it seems hard, but it's not your life. She'll probably want you to stay out but if she asks you for help give her some.

I do that a lot and when I ask myself why I do that I find the answer... I'm lonely and all my friends are dating... So yeah maybe that's your answer too?

its best to live your own life. they might think your in their relationship for the wrong reasons even though your intentions may be good. trust me you dont want to have that or even be pulled into the middle of a relationship. its best just to be there for your friend and stay out of their romance life.

Rock on - Live large - if you wanna do that then 'do that'. Or, jump into your own game and make it happen. What's the matter with a lil' reckless chance taking once in a while.

Sure, why not? I was not able to take a vacation the past 4 years so I had to live vicariously through hearing about the vacations of others. One pal from my job even sent me a few pics, and brought me back a cool souvenir.

But ... eventually you must experience your own love life. Otherwise, you will just be a spectator. You don't want that, do you?

I have NEVER read one of those goofy romance novels. It seems to me a big waste of time. Love is not what you expect, or the way you might expect it to happen. It is way better! And way worse. It is life, and you have a duty to yourself to live it!

Best wishes .... hope you have a great new year filled with romance & fun.
