Me and my friend like the same guy, but he likes me back, not her....

OK well often me and my friend end up liking the same guy, and it always ends up with him liking me, but me not going out with him because I just don't want to hurt her.

This guy REALLY likes me, and sometimes gets really close to me (like practically leaning on me in Uni class, which I find a bit invading). And I think I like him, but I don't think I should go out with him because she likes him too, and even though she says she wouldn't mind, I know she would.

I also feel bad because he is ALWAYS flirting with me, but she likes him too, so I feel bad that he doesn't like her. But I actually want to go out with this guy, and even though she is one of my good friends, I do not want to pass up another opportunity like I have done at least 3 times in the past.

Yes I know this is a sticky situation, I could either hurt the guy and turn him down and make my friend happy, or I could go out with him and hurt my friend.

I don't want to hurt her, but I'm sick of hurting guys that I really like just to spare her feelings. ( I know this sounds selfish, but seriously I have been single for SO long, and she is the only one stopping me from getting a bf)

Any advise of what I should do and how I should deal with my situation. Should I go out with him, should I pretend not to like him? Help please!

**also if you have been in a situation like this before, what did you do, did it work out?
