Is dating friends a good idea

Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. and if she gets upset for you wanting to be with a guy that appears to make you happy, well she's not a true friend and kick her to the curb.

Okay let me see if I get this straight, and correct me if I'm out in Right field, your best friend liked this guy, but was never with him, and she joined POF thanks to you , and met this guy she's been with for 2 years and they are happy? IF that guy was just another guy you met socially and had NO connection to your friend, so he WAS available and interested in you, would you STILL be interested so much in him, compared to all those other guys out there that may want to date you?

You really do not need the permission of a woman in a long term relationship with another man to date a man you are interested in and who seems interested in you but, if you are worried about the effects of that on your friendship then simply get it out in the open. I mean, how would you feel if your (future) long-term boyfriend got pissed at one of his buddies because he was going to ask out a gal he had a crush on years ago but is just-friends with? If there IS a current crush, she could lose her boyfriend if she throws a hissy fit -- let her know that. if not for that word..the fact that she was...besotted...here's a random - she's dating guy #2 and talking to guy #1 on the phone some right ?

If she says she is not comfortable with you dating this guy then that says a lot about how she views her own relationship and also how she views your friendship, none of it positive by the way. If she's taken and it was just a crush -- and she's been taken for a good long while -- NO, you're doing nothing wrong. But let her boyfriend in on the action of announcing that you're making/accepting a move with Mr. what are the odds that she and he would suddenly STOP speaking to each other cuz you and him started dating ?

It really depends on the situation and the type of relationship the friend and the guy had.

I mean, there are some men my friends were with that I would never dream of getting involved with, while others I know wouldn't make a dent.

She never dated that guy, just liked him and now you want to date him? You may have to step back and take a fresh look, to see if what is going on is just that common "forbidden fruit" syndrome..
