My (23F) friend (23F) who is in a relationship is asking me not to date a mutual friend (23M) because she has a crush on him too.

The fuck? You don't get dibs on people when you're single, let alone in a LTR with someone else (and good fucking luck that guy). You should 100% date this nice sounding guy, and your friend can work on getting over these apparently strong feelings she's having for not her boyfriend. I cannot imagine preventing one of my friends dating someone I also like while I'm literally with someone else. I straight up don't understand her thought process on this. What's to prevent her from crushing on some other primo dude that you could also be into in the future? Does every guy that catches her eye belong to her, even though according to her I assume monogamous relationship she can't have them?
