you had a crush on your wife's bff?

No. It's actually much funnier than that!
My then girlfriend left me for another woman after we'd been dating for three years. (The one who was six years older than me, who had three children, who had turned down my proposal of marriage.)
This left me feeling gutted and I didn't feel like dating, at all. And didn't, for several years.
After a while a married couple I knew set me up on a blind date with a female friend of theirs who was a dead ringer for Janet Street-Porter.
I fell for her, we dated for a while but the relationship foundered because apparently I treated her too nicely.
She was a lovely girl, but a bit weird.
However, I began dating again and eventually met the woman who became my wife.
One day we were passing a cute little cottage and my wife said: "Oh! See that cute little cottage? My best friend xxxxx from my school days lived there. In fact her mum and dad still live there."
She looked at me, saw the shocked look on my face and she laughed uproariously, saying: "Oh, bloody hell, no! You must be the Matt who she dated for a few months, several years ago!
"She told me all about you, how you treated her too well. You dated xxxxx? You poor sod! She's still just as weird!"
