Violet has a problem. She’s fallen madly in love with her best friend Grif, and he’s clueless. When she’s offered a huge promotion that would involve a cross-country move, she reaches out to the one person she thinks she can trust for advice–international relationship guru, The Love Vixen.

Dear Love Vixen,

Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t pick myself up! I’m totally, one-hundred percent in love with a guy who’s never thought of me as more than a friend. We’ve been through so much together over the years, and I’ve tried time and time again to hint at how I truly feel but he’s clueless… totally, utterly unaware that he’s the peanut butter to my jelly, the yin to my yang, the banana to my banana split.

Now I’ve been offered a major promotion that would mean moving across the country. Is it time to make a fresh start and leave my soulmate behind or should I lay my heart on the line and finally tell him how I feel?

Dear Almost,

I can tell you’ve read my book, Love is Like a PB&J Sammie. Re-read chapter four. Notice anything familiar? Yep, you’ve been Friend Zoned. The relationship you currently have with your guy is one sided. You’re the giver and he’s the taker. Stop giving so much.

Sweetie, you’ve got to step back and take a look inside yourself. Find a hobby that doesn’t include your guy. Go out and meet people. Make new friends. Start dating. You can’t change the way your crush feels about you. But you can change the way he sees you.

Wake him up to the fact that you are your own person with needs he’s not meeting. You are fierce! Focus on you but realize that you may need to take that promotion.

Good luck, hon!
