If you decide to date the guy anyway, keep your friend out of your relationship.
Make sure you talk to your bestie first to see how they feel about the possibility of you two dating.
Not that you need permission, but definitely consider their feelings and their point of view.
He’s cute, he’s funny, smart and you two really seem to hit it off. A girlfriend of mine found herself in this predicament.
You like him and he likes you, so what’s stopping you two from hooking up? I didn’t quite see anything wrong with it…at first.
But imagining my girlfriend talking to me about kissing, getting intimate or even hating my brother would probably leave me feeling a little uneasy.
Who wants to picture their sibling getting busy with anyone, let alone with your best friend? Just the thought of all the “what ifs” is too much for me and I’m not even in the situation.Needless to say her brother wasn’t too thrilled about it.When I asked her why her brother was upset, she said her brother’s explanation was simply, “That’s just not what black people do.” I could see if he was upset because she kept a secret from him or because maybe he thought his friend wasn’t good enough for his baby sister, but to make it a cultural thing seemed strange to me.I mean, what’s the big deal about dating your best friend’s brother?She had known him for years and he was a great friend of the family.I can see how it would get tricky and, possibly, messy. Once I weighed the pros and cons of dating a friend’s brother, I began to see how it might not be worth all the potential drama.
