Rules when dating a friend
If a girl doesn't approach or initiate contact with a shy man, nothing will happen.
This is true, but handling this situation isn't as simple as you might think...
She might be seeing other people, and he might as well and she might not care, but she is a close friend and obviously still has hostile feelings towards him.
Talk to her about it first, and if she isn’t okay with it I would suggest not going for it, at least not until she is fine with it. Sometimes, you really can’t help who you have a crush on – so if you end up crushing on your BFF’s ex, don’t make yourself feel horribly guilty. Would you ever meet up with someone you met online?
We saw this topic in the message boards and we wanted to know: do you think it’s fair to say that all of your friends exes are off-limits?
Once your friend is done with the dude and she’s over him, then what’s the harm in you liking him or being with him? Read what these girls had to say about the topic and then tell us what you think in the comments. My close friend had a boyfriend and they went out for a while before they ended things.
In many relationships, men don't get emotionally invested - they just get laid for a while.
This post has been expanded and rewritten as a chapter, along with other chapters that explain how to think about dating and relationships in a way that will help you attract solid, confident men.
Basically, it means that you don’t date your friends exes or crushes – unless you get their approval.
I've dated countless women and it has always amazed me how little they know about men. But the ridiculousness of my situation was embarrassingly obvious in the very instant he asked the question.
If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female's ignorance of the male mindset. I knew that - in light of my certainty - my relationship with her was pointless.
