My two best friends started dating
I’m not saying it could never work out, but I’d have to make sure that the guy I’m interested in would definitely be worth the risk of losing a friend.
Either way, if this is something you’re thinking of doing, be sure to cover all your bases.
Logic would suggest that you’d want two of your favorite people to be together right? One thing my girls and I did growing up was talk about the boys we liked, dated, kissed, hated, and then kicked to the curb.
But imagining my girlfriend talking to me about kissing, getting intimate or even hating my brother would probably leave me feeling a little uneasy.
I’ve also never been attracted to any of my girlfriends’ brothers, so I’ve avoided that conflict altogether.
But I would imagine that if I thought very highly of both my brother and my best friend, why would I have an issue with them dating?
I know the pickin’s may seem slim, but some friendships are just not worth losing.
Do not introduce your girlfriend or boyfriend to your parents just for the sake of doing so. Figuring out when the right time is will, of course, have a lot to do with how strict or relaxed your parents are.
If your friend thinks it’s a bad idea, ask why and really listen to the answer.At first, she started seeing her brother’s friend behind his back, but once it got serious, she confessed that they had secretly been dating.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.Then again, I had known many white people who had no problem dating their best friend’s brother, but no black folks. I don’t have any brothers, so I can’t say how I’d feel if my bestie wanted to date my sibling.
