Okay, so Rudy is indeed being a bit apathetic towards his sister and his friends, but here’s the question: Is he really wrong?

Hypothetically speaking, if you have a crush on someone - and so do three of your best friends - do you back off in favor of making your friends happy or do you pursue your crush? If you said you’d back off, would you change your mind after a significant amount of time has passed with no one doing anything? Is there an okay amount of time to wait? And if your crush gets asked out and swept away by a third party that isn’t among you or your friends, wouldn’t that just be a thrown away chance for you and everyone you seeked to help?

Deep page. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this. I feel like I haven’t proposed an “in their shoes” question in a long time.

I hate the viewpoint of someone being the bad guy in any relational situation. There are reasons for everything and if everything is grey across the board then who's really in the wrong?

I'm the kind of person who would delay and then end up too scared to do anything. Then someone else would swoop in and I'm SOL. Yay high school drama! Good thing I'm going out tonight so now I can repress the memories with booze.

I would say if you know other people like them, the right thing to do would be give them a heads-up about asking the person out before you do, out of respect. But otherwise I don't see a reason to back off. After all the person might say no, and you'd want to know where you stand.

I'd go at it. Ask them out! I'm going to die eventually and so are they. Live life while you can, so many never get the chance.
