Our expert says:
it sounds like you have a difficult decision to make. On the one hand if you have really strong feelings for John you need to consider whether having a relationship is the most important thing to you. Whether it lasts forever it is impossible to say, but you have to question if it ends after a week and you have lost your best friends would it then be worth it?
How well do you know your friends and how well do you know John? If you don't kow him that well, it may be that he is just wanting to date Kelly's friends to make her jealous?
Before you do anything you need to think about why your friendships are important to you, and how you may feel if you give them up, and then you and John break up. Your friendships may just be too much to lose, and thinking about these is also thinking about your own needs as at times friends can be more helpful and more important than a boyfriend.
Have a think about these things and then if you want to chat more, post another question here on the site. Take your time as reacting without thinking may lead to you making a mistake you later regret.
