This just in: it’s possible — and common — to spend an adequate amount of time with more than one person. Instead of assuming that they’ll completely dismiss you, have faith that they’re a true friend who wouldn’t toss you aside.
Instead of saying this, try something like, “I’m excited to meet them.” Perhaps that’ll convey your wish to continue prioritizing your friendship while supporting their newfound relationship.
As a close friend or family member, your job is to support and cheer on this person. They’re not telling you because they want criticism or inappropriate questions; they just want you to be happy for them! Just remember: If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it.
