Would you ever date your best friends sister or brother?Page 1 of 1    
I have 5 sisters, and often times I would become friendly with the guys they date. I was always prepared to stop being friends with their boyfriends if they broke up. There were cases where I've had a sister tell me that I could remain friends regardless that she had just broken up. So I took it to heart and remain friends but while she was getting over her 'ex', I never invited him to our house because I didn't want to make my sister uncomfortable. Alot of time passed (and she had a new boyfriend) before I invited him over for family parties.

I feel that if you're going date or remain friends with a sibling's lover/friend you should get their permission first and respect whatever decision they have.

In your case you should've asked your brother instead of your brother's best friend, because family comes first. If your brother would said yes, who knows what might've happened. This best friend might've had less concerns about his friendship with your brother knowing that he approved of you dating his best friend.

Sort ofthe other way around:

When I was in high school there was a girl I wanted to go out with but I didn't know how to approach her. I played guitar and her brother played bass, so I befriended him a rouse to get to know his sister.

It worked!

I guess KZ would have to say "yes" to this one, wouldn't she?
