The best friend love interest with oblivious consequences
If the people walking around my school were that oblivious we would have gotten our federal funding yanked ASAP. If you've got a bestie of the opposite sex and they have feelings for you, it's usually pretty obvious. Unless your head is wedged firmly up your own love interest's ass. I had a couple of male friends that had some level of interest in me. If you're even half as observant as a lobotomized chimp you can tell they look at you differently, pay attention to you differently, act a little differently around you. It's there if you're willing to see it. If not then denial can be a really strong thing.
