, 2007 was the first night I ever spent the night at my best friend Leslie’s house.
Although this date has gone down in history as just that, celebrated annually as our friendship-a-versary, there was something else about this day that changed my life forever: it was the first night I met her brother.
And let’s not forget what happens if your relationship ends, whether it be a nasty break-up or a mutual agreement.
You will still have to see that person anytime you wish to see your best friend and nothing good can come of this.
He doesn't think it's strange, but I do feel a bit weird about it(quite possibilty because we slept together a couple months ago). Years pass, circumstances have it so my friend group and his have become overlapped due to our jobs. They turned out to really like each other and stayed together, moved in, etc. It's actually been super awesome to have a BFF as a SIL. Well my best friend is a guy and he's not gay so this would be unexpected.
She's there on all the holidays, family trips. Only drawback, probably more for her than me, is she can't get real personal about her sex life on girls nights with me around because that would be real weird. My brother's ex became one of my best friends. A few years later he dated one of my other best friends (also, one of said ex's best friends). First of all, because he's a commitment-phobe; secondly, it was long distance; third, she obviously was so uncomfortable about it that she refused to tell me (tells me everything) and agonised about it to the point that she stopped talking to me altogether. Shortly after he started trying to manipulate her and then tried to convince her to move interstate to be with him. But in terms of any of my friends dating any of my brothers: Not the older one, he's married. Not the middle one, he's selfish and not ready for commitment. The youngest one is 19 now, and my friends are probably around my age (25) so that's...a little young.
In this case, the rivalry was the equivalent of a third World War. Then I had to consider splitting time spent between the two.
They would fight and of course, your friend expects you to have their back. Whosever side you took, you would still have to face the wrath of the other person. This would cause fights as well because your best friend feels like you are leaving them for the one person they can’t stand and your boyfriend thinks that his sister is taking you away from him.
I think they'd be incompatible for a number of reasons - they're into way different things - and also my brother is engaged and my best friend has a boyfriend. This friend is way younger than me so he and my little brother are only three years apart, thus within an acceptable dating range.
To see if it would have made much of a difference if time allowed me a do-over.
After our introduction, the more I would spend the night, the more he would joke about us being together. But jokes turned to more jokes, more jokes turned to feelings, and the rest is history. Apart from the blood ties that make you love your family, siblings have a tendency to despise one another.
My 'sister-in-law' is marrying her brother's best friend this summer and it seems to be going great for the three of them.
I'd be down, but also disappointed because I LOVE her current boyfriend and they're great together.
