So my best friend met a guy on a mission trip and they sorta clicked. They live in two different states which makes it hard for their” friendship” ( I know it’s more than that) to work. She is totally obsessed with this guy. I love her to death and she knows it, but when she spends the night with me ALL she does it sit their on her phone texting him! It’s so annoying. She won’t even carry on a conversation with me while texting him. For example, we were watching a movie she said she had never seen before but wanted to, so I turned it on and we start watching it. Well, about 5 minutes later, her phone buzzes and guess what she does. She stops watching the movie and text him. I mean I guess I would do the same if I had a BF but she’s missing the best part of the movie and it isn’t just a quick reply and sorry she didn’t mean to interrupt. She gets the text, heart eyes over it, and writes her response, but then she doesn’t like it so she erases it and restarts and then re reads it a million times before she sends it. Also, she and this guy started saying I love you before they even started dating. They officially started dating yesterday and as her best friend I should be excited…but I am NOT. She thinks she is in love but I don’t think she really knows what love is this young of an age. I just wish she wasn’t so obsessed with this guy. I try to be nice about it when she does that stuff that irritates me, but I am starting to get fed up with it at this point! Any advice on how to handle this situation would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for listening to me gripe forever. LOL

Sounds like this has reached the point that you really have the right to say something, but there’s the huge possibility that she will take it wrong. I would recommend that next time she interrupts something to text him, gently say something like “Hey, can you reply later? This is the best part of the movie!” If you want to escape her texting madness altogether, how about suggesting the two of you go somewhere and leave your phones at home? I think her obsession will probably subside with time…she’s probably just nervous and excited because it’s a new relationship. If it continues, though, you might want to tell her how you feel about it, as gently as possible.
