Dating your girlfriend best friend
Unless for some odd reason your bestie is 100 percent OK with it, even considering her ex automatically qualifies you as a bad friend. I love my friends, but sharing the same sex partner as them just doesn't strike me as a turn on. You've heard every terrible thing that they did to your best friend.
That goes without saying, but since some seem to forget this, it bears repeating.
If not, you might have to find yourself a whole new group of friends.
Take a moment to consider the pros and cons of taking your relationship to the next level.
Jennifer Aniston and bestie Courtney Cox were both romantically linked with Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz - and Katy Perry and Taylor Swift both had relationships with John Meyer (though that one did cause Bad Blood).
Honestly, it should never have been considered anyway, so do yourself a favor and don't put your friendship at risk.5. Not only are you pissing your best friend off, but your new bf's family has always viewed you as his girlfriend's best friend. Considering they always associated the two of you together, there's a real good chance you're gonna get called your bestie's name. If for some reason your best friend chooses not to defriend you, your social outings are gonna be awkward af from now on.

You may secretly think your friend is a loser and the luckiest son of a gun for getting a girl who’s so good in every way. In such cases, you may feel like the knight in shining armor who’s doing your friend’s girlfriend a favor by rescuing the damsel in distress from a bad relationship. You’re only creating more confusions and complications by flirting with her and leading her on.
But hey, you wanted her boyfriend so maybe you'll want her name, too. The chances of successful group dates are highly unlikely and if you want to ever bring your bf to those concerts you always attend....well, think again.
Basically, don't be the bitch who dates your best friend's ex. The things that used to annoy you kinda start turning you on.
