What's your input on this topic.

How do you handle/maintain a relationship with someone who has a "Best Friend" of the opposite sex?

A friend of mine asked me saying he was getting serious with a girl, but she has a male best friend.
According to her, they (her & the best friend) have only kissed a few years ago, but nothing more.
Personally, I told him I couldnt be with a woman who has a guy as a best friend.
Just too many "What If's" and too many possibilities...

What does everyone here think...

Re: What's your input on this topic.

date her only if he just wants someone to date, not get serious with.

I used to have a female best friend. we always liked each other and she ended up cheating on a guy she was dating with me right before we got together

Any guy that is bf with a girl, wants her. as soon as she's not happy in a relationship he'll try to make a move

I was actually going to say if they're not in a relationship, I don't see a problem pursuing her. But the above post is a good point and I sort of agree with it. Especially if the girl is at all attractive.

That is 100% correct. When I was somewhat good friends with a girl, I wanted her. I'd just ask her straight up about her friend and get her opinion on it.

Re: What's your input on this topic.

This best friend is only a friend because he's in the friend zone.... He defiantly wants her but if she doesn't see that then there's some thing wrong with her.
I'm not the jealous type but if a girl told me that shit I would be out of there unless she's just a b00ty call.

there just needs to some type of change in the relationship she has with the close guy friend
trust will be key

that being said, I wouldn't do it from personal experience.

But I'm with RR

Re: What's your input on this topic.

IMO This isnt so black & white. It really all depends.

I consider 3 Females I'm friends with as "best friends". Ive had sex with 1 out of the 3.

With the one I hooked up with, it was an agreed upon FWB senario. Once we started relationships with other people, the sex stopped.

As for the other two, I would not pursue them to have sex. We're too close and they aren't the types to do a FWB thing.

Regardless of this though, being a male, its kinda difficult to say you'd NEVER have sex with a female "best" friend because in all seriousness, if shes hot and has the hots for you, chances are youre gonna have sex with her.

OP, it really all depends on how much you trust this girl youre seeing.

M.o.B.

Thus, my answer is no. Otherwise they can fine someone else to fuck with.

Re: What's your input on this topic.

It all depends on how long they've known each other, if they ever "talked", or their intentions.

I know some girls with guy best friends that are homosexual, that I can understand.

Observe their actions when they have some alcohol in their system, it usually tells the truth about how they feel about each other.

From personal experience, I don't believe in girls having best friends with straight guys. The majority of the time it's the guy trying to get in those pants.
