My boyfriend's brother has a crush on me – and I think I feel the same

DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE been with my boyfriend for two years and I’m ­completely smitten with him, but I can sense that his older brother ­fancies me.

He stares at me when he thinks I’m not aware and flirts – sometimes in front of his brother.

I’m 25, my boyfriend is 26 and his brother is 28.

I wouldn’t ever do anything about it but I definitely have a little crush on him.

I think it’s because he has some good qualities in areas where my boyfriend can be a little lacking.

His brother for example is really sociable and confident, whereas my boyfriend is a lot quieter and reserved.

I’m worried my boyfriend may pick up on his feelings towards me and think I’ve encouraged him.

DEIDRE SAYS: As hard as it might be, to avoid any future upset it would be best if you play it cool with your boyfriend’s older brother.

He will soon start to understand you don’t want any flirtations and hopefully will meet someone else soon too.
