Dear Abby: There’s this guy I like, “Joey.” My sister likes him, too. Joey and I are not dating, although we are very close friends. My sister (of course) decided to ask him out on a date. I’m so upset with her. It has been two days since their date and I’m still not talking to her.

I can’t believe she asked him out when she knew I was about to. I don’t want to ruin our relationship, but Joey is now into her. Please give me some advice before I do something terribly wrong.

Can’t take it in Florida

If your sister jumped in knowing you were interested in Joey, it was sneaky and wrong. But you have nothing to gain by declaring war over it. Keep your options open and bide your time. With luck, their romance will blow over — and when it does, if you have maintained your position as Joey’s “close friend,” you can make your move then. It may take nerves of steel, but I have faith in you, and it will be worth it in the long run.
