Basically, my best friend of 4-5 years has been having problems with her housemates, so has been spending a lot of time in my house. We live next door so its really easy for her, and I realised that I like her as more than a friend. The next time I saw her after this, when I was actually going to ask her out, I found out that she had agreed to go on a date with my housemate, who is one of my other best friends. I'm not going to describe how I felt when this happened, but it wasn't good, and I have no idea how to handle this going forward. I mean, I just know I'll feel so awkward around them from now on, and my main problem is that if they stay together, she'll be over a lot and I won't be able to get over her like that, but if the date doesn't go well, I still have no idea how to act. Like, is it still acceptable for me to ask her out at that point? Knowing she went on a date with my best friend and housemate? Basically, if anyone can give me some advice on how to handle this, it'd be great.

Oh God. This sounds horrible.. I gotta admit, you've been put in a really awkward and difficult situation. So, your roommate doesn't know you like her, right?
Well, there's nothing you can do now, now that he already asked her out. And if it doesn't work between them, I suggest you talk to your guy friend and tell him what happened and how you wanted to ask her out first. Tell him if it's gonna bother him, you won't ask her out (cause you're a good friend).
If they become in a relationship, there's nothing you can do then :/ cause if you act on it or say sth it's gon get super awkward.. so, in order for you three to be "ok", as hard as it sounds, keep your feeling to urself.
I'm sorry for what happened/might happen... thats a reeeally tough situation tbh..0
