“Friendships typically last a hell of a lot longer than romantic relationships, particularly 'potential' romantic relationships.
“You can try to handle it like an adult, being open and honest – but you will go down a notch on the friendship ladder,” agrees Nana Wereko-Brobby, director of Social Concierge, a London dating service.
Nana points to the story of her friend Katie, a 27-year-old Londoner who lost a friendship when an ex got involved. Tell him what his friendship means to you,” suggests Irene La Cota, president of dating agency It's Just Lunch International.
During the conversation, pay attention to your friend's non-verbal communication.
“As guys, we often say we're OK with the situation to put on a brave face, when really we're anything but,” adds Callow.
