I'm going to be honest here. I'm not the one in the LTR. I could potentially be the other girl who's being "lined up". He's a friend of mine and our bond has gotten stronger and closer over the last year.
Their LTR has been on the rocks for a while. I REALLY like him... a LOT. I'm pretty sure he's interested in me too. Neither one of us has made a move and I won't as long as he's still in a relationship. Once that's officially over we'll see what happens.
I should also note that I'm not sitting around waiting. I'm still dating other men, but a big part of me wants this man. We just clicked right away and I feel starting as friends is a bonus.
I just wonder if the connection we share might be enough to eventually persuade him to leave his current relationship since it's so rocky.

I'm pretty sure it's never easy to leave a long term relationship.
I think it's a dam breaking issue. If you're in a good log relationship, issues are resolved (so I'm told) you move on and stay happy.
Bad long relationships shit just piles up. Eventually that dams Gonna break. With or without another person in the picture. But, it could be that the alternative person showed the person in the LTR that there is something better.
And it's not that they are "lined up" but providing a better example.
Let's be honest, we've all been in a bad relationship and had that thought to just keep quiet and accept it because "this may be as good as it gets"
Or who knows, some people can't be alone. And if that's the case having someone lined up would be a requirement to leave1
