Rules to dating my best friend
(I'm going to use female pronouns for your friend, and male pronouns for your sweetie, for the sake of simplicity; however, every rule here applies no matter the genders of the participants.) Keep your friend's secrets.The reverse is also true; no matter how much you love discussing your dude with your besties, his ex can probably live without hearing the details of his current sex life. It's OK to come to your partner for advice if you're arguing with your friend, or vice versa, but absolutely resist the urge to belittle or insult one of them to the other.They wholeheartedly believe that it's wrong, disrespectful, and if a friend did that to them, they'd never talk to that person again.
You've already made a reservation for you and your best friend. Then they were into you, but maybe you found someone else, or moved away for college.I can count the degrees of hookup separation between my closest friends and myself, and usually come up with no more than two or three.In fact, when we met, my now-partner was on a date with my best friend.Queers don't tend to expect our dates to come into our lives completely free of prior complication.We know our backstories will be tangled and intertwined.
