A very good friend has recently come out of a two year LTR, her first. (She is early 20s.) She loved him, he loved her, they broke up due to circumstances and distance. Very sad but she's over it now I think. She has just been on a first date with someone new and completely clicked etc etc, he's very handsome, they're going to see how it goes. In between these two she met up with another great-looking, funny, talented guy for sex and company. So she is covered really smile

I'm really happy for her but can't help but feel a bit sorry for myself. I've had lots of dates over the years but none have ever been fantastic, amazing etc. The guys have been nice, good-looking and we've tried to take it further but has akways just fizzled out. The spark is akways missing for me.

Aibu to be a bit jealous of my friend who akways seems to have a spark? sad She is very lucky in love and I am fucking Cinderella. I wish I had half her luck!

Life is long. You have no idea of what other people have or will go through.

Comparison is the the thief of joy.

Maybe she has fairly low standards?

What she tells you and how it really is or how she feels isn't necessarily the same thing

Her funny and handsome might be very different to yours. She might be somebody who sparks easily too. Some people are like that. YABU to yourself mainly. You might go for tapas with her and she loves every single dish. You like all the dishes but the albondigas you loved.

Jealousy is a natural reaction. Human nature. So no ynbu. You say you're Cinderella well look how things turned out for her. He/she who laughs last laughs loudest. flowers
