    Is it wrong to date a friend's sister?
    I really like my mate's sis who I have met a couple of times.
    I asked him if he would mind if I asked her out, and he said something like it was a 'rule' that you don't date a mate's sis??:confused:

    If you both like each other then go for it.
    I'm guessing by the fact that he said that it's a rule that he's not too comfortable with it. I'd play it a bit safe if you're both around him.

    If anything is to happen between you and her, or if you break her heart or whatever, then you're probably putting your friendship with your friend at risk.

    Haha! The age old question.

    IT can get messy on a break up. But yeh he's on about the 'mans code' as said above. LOL

    i dont see why not as long as its not just a fling or something. Ive got a friend who fancies me and i fancy him but i suspect he wont make a move cos hes worried about what my brother would say

    If I were you I'd sit your friend down and explain you're serious about her, (assuming you are) not just ****ing around. If you're his mate he must think some good of you, right?

    Otherwise, ****it and go for it. Life's too short.

    The "rule" was invented cuz if you guys were to break up, it would be an awkward situation. In most cases he knows your habits with girls and doesn't want her feelings hurt. But if you really want to be with her, talk to your friend. Prove to him that you really want to be with her.

    Depends how much you value your friendship with the guy. If you can talk to him, show him that you arn't just fooling around with her etc then he should be cool with it, but if it all ends badly you'll end up on the recieving end of his anger.
    You should go for it with her if you are serious about her and likewise but watch yourself around your friend, and any mutual friends you share because anything you say about the sister will always get back to him and that could cause some problems

    i wouldn't recommend it. my ex was my best friends brother, and although we were ok for the first few months, after a while she started complaining that she felt like a 3rd wheel and that we were leaving her out all the time.
    now i speak to neither of them.

    I wouldn't do it... It tends to get a bit uncomfortable.

    i couldnt nail my best mates sister, you cant exacly go down and tell your best mate how great it was nailing his sister, though its fine to say that about other girls, and thats usually the type of thing you talk to your best mate about. 'damn she was tight', 'who, my sister?' Dodgy.

    Let nature take it's course if there's chemistry it'll probably happen anyway, if not well there you go.

    The mans code, yea right. Hormones is hormones

    For the friend, I imagine that it'd be better for his sister to go out with someone that he knows he can trust than any other guy... but if he really doesn't want you to, it's crunch-time, gotta make a decision!

    From experience I wouldn't. I went out with my brothers mate a few years ago and it ended really horribly! If he didn't mind then it'd be ok, but I've been totally put off brothers' friends ever again. It only lasted a few months anyway as I was in uni but my brother hated it and fell out with his best mate for a while....then I broke up with him and they moved in together - it was awkward as **** when I went to visit him!?

    well I wouldn't go and tell him that of course. It's not really a problem.
    You make it sound like I just want a shag or something.
