So have you crossed the line from best friends into something more? Friends know best, right? Sometimes, our friends catch on to things before we do. Or do your friends expect that if they invite one of you to a party or event, the other one will inevitably show up as well? You and your best friend are now so in tune that you could have a whole conversation using your body language alone. Someone annoying you at a party?
Sometimes when you develop feelings they happen to be for your friend's ex. But, pursuing these feelings might not always be worth it. Here are some potential red flags to consider if you're trying to decide whether or not dating someone your friend has dated is a good idea. Whether the relationship went down in flames or if two people who truly loved each other realized that things just weren't going to work out, most breakups can be tough. And some can be worse than others. If your friend is still reeling over their split, it's best to be there for them - not move on to their ex yourself.
In college, you'll make your college friends - and perhaps your future best men. At work, you have work friends. If you're a guy, it's completely fine to have a female best friend. If you're a woman? It's no different, either. While you might have love for your opposite sex best friend, there are bound to be some cts of the relationship you don't love so much. Don't fret.
