I'm sorry, that's terrible that someone betrayed your confidence.
Well, now you know where you stand, so to speak, and although it may be awkward for a bit you can maybe both maintain what must be an important
friendship in the long run.
There will be no romance, today, with this young lady, that is true. I imagine it hurts, not only the romantic rejection but, the betrayal of the
other friend who I am sure only wanted/tried to help (?).
I've made that mistake myself and I will try very hard to not make that mistake again. Sometimes, we are clouded with wanting the best for folks and
wanting to see others happy. Perhaps trying to change the reflection of our own lives but, often with good intentions nevertheless.
I digress. I believe that you can salvage the friendship between you and your lady friend (if you desire) and that it can be difficult to stuff down
the 'romantic' (can't find another word to fit) feelings in order to keep that person, who you liked in the beginning for the regular reasons that we
like other people, in your life as a friend.
