So yeah. Friend of mine and I are both into each other, have a romantic history, etc. Hanging out at other friends places it's pretty obvious we both want something to happen (let's not debate this premise, take it as granted) - but everywhere she is her male best friend follows like a hawk. He's pretty much the definition of 'best friend stuck in the friend zone' and does nothing but get in the way of her and I. If it's not by his simple presence, it's his habit of moping into another room to draw her away from me - it's all really rather aggravating and low. (He's been at this for half a decade now, damn near has it down to a science.)
I'd take her back to my place but I now live a fair distance from my hometown that we're hanging out at, and she's only around for a limited span of time.
Talking to him doesn't work because he disapproves of her in any sort of casual relationship we would be having. (We used to be very serious in a normal relationship but it's very well clear that for various reasons it won't work out, so have been good friends with occasional intimacy that is pretty healthy and drama free.)
So this isn't much of a 'i'm pining for this girl help me H/A!' it's just a practical question of what the fuck can I even do about this dude, who is a pain in the ass and throws a wrench in these things?
tl:dr Bypassing a stage 4 cockblocking male friend of a gal that I want to get down with.
