DEARSUGAR Needs Your Help: My Handsome Handyman

DEARSUGAR and Intrigued Isabella need your help. She's crushing her contractor, but he's about to be married. She says that it's tough to meet someone as fabulous as him in her small town, but if she acts on her feelings she could break up her relationship.

Personally Isabella, as much as you like this guy, have you ever considered that maybe you want what you can't have? He is taken and that means hands off! I believe in karma, and if you steal him, then just think about what lies ahead for you? What do you guys think?

Dear Sugar
I know I am going to come off as a home-wrecker, but I am falling in love with a guy who is practically married. He's my contractor and has been working on my house for the past three months. Over the course of many trips to Home Depot and a recent plumbing crisis, we have gotten to know each other pretty well.

He hasn't tried anything or has even remotely made a pass at me, but I think he's falling for me too since he's stopped charging me for work a while ago and has dragged little projects out longer than necessary to spend time with me.

How do I let him know I'll be available if he breaks up
with his girlfriend (hopefully sooner, rather than later) without sounding desperate? We live in a very small town so it's not easy to find someone that I feel compatible with. Intrigued Isabella
