My brother is jealous over how close his friend is with the girl he secretly likes.
I have saw my brother and this girl together and he never bothers with her and just hangs around with his other friend, but this girl gives him chances to get close with her. His friend and crush are always fooling around with each other, touching, hugging and always talking and people confuse them for a couple, even though their not. His crush tries her best with him, playfully insulting him, trying to get him to join in and offering him help, but he always pulls away and he never truly bothers with her but gets jealous when he sees his friend and crush together.
How can I get him to start bothering before its to late?
Does he have a right to be jealous watch

Maybe he's just nervous. But he shouldn't be jealous anyway.

"Right to feel" is a tricky one. I often tell myself I have no "right" to feel a certain way but emotions often can't be helped. We all have a right to free thought.
In the end, it boils down to actions. If his frustration is being projected through complaining and acting negatively, it's an issue he needs to resolve. If you've already tried explaining nicely that he should make a move, then be blunt and make it clear he has no right to complain and ruin things for others if he's not doing anything about it himself. The harsh truth is often best. However, try the nice approach first.

You're the one with the crush. If you like the girl, ask her out and stop being jealous when her guy friends are hanging out with her cos there's nothing going on between them.
