Ask Willie D

My Friend Is Prettier Than Me. Help!

Welcome to Ask Willie D, Rocks Off's advice column where the Geto Boys MC answers reader questions about matters, in his own words, "funny, serious or unpredictable." Something on your mind? Ask Willie D!


Dear Willie D:

Hanging out with my close, beautiful friend has always made me feel less important, and sometimes unattractive. She's always the first one that guys see. Lately, I have found myself being really resentful of her to the point that I no longer want to hang out with her, and tell her about events that I might be attending because I'm tired of competing with her.

I feel like such a snake. She is a good friend, and has always had my back. I know I shouldn't feel the way I do, but I can't help it. How can I cope and coexist with a friend who is prettier than me?
