If dating itself was not a part of your life that required much caution, getting into a relationship with the sister of a friend of yours is totally dangerous territory.
Not only do you induce chances of altering a perfectly cemented friendship, you also land up treading an established comfort zone. Confused? Read on to know what this could imply.
Ok, so you have known her since you were kids, because she happened to be around each time you visited your friend’s house. Or, you have literally grown up together since you and your buddy have been best pals since you were boys at school. It could also be that you recently made friends with a guy and have only just met his hot-looking sister. It does not matter which way it has happened. What does matter is the situation itself: that you are attracted to your pal’s sibling.
So, why is it a topic of discussion at all, you ask? Well, due to the following possible repercussions:
1. Awkwardness in Friendship
Dating you friend’s sister can imply a sense of awkwardness creeping into the rapport you share with your buddy. While earlier you may have been able to talk about almost any topic under the sun with him, you would know only too well not to broach the subjects of sex and girlfriends any longer.
2. Public Display of Affection
While holding hands with, kissing or hugging your girlfriend in front of your buddies is considered normal, you would be uncomfortable doing so if your date was your friend’s sister. Imagine a casual smooch with your girl, with your best buddy – HER BROTHER – watching! If that isn’t creepy, what is?
3. Make-Out Issues
While your best pal’s pad is usually the best option when you need a place to make out with your girl, her being your friend’s sister rules out that alternative completely. Moreover, making out with her in HER room, in the house that also happens to be HIS, sure is weird!
4. Long-Term Considerations
Considering a long-term relationship with your girlfriend under normal circumstances is rather different from contemplating something serious with your buddy’s sister. For one, he will always be there when you visit her, pick her for a date and spend the night at her place. Then, you may start contemplating marriage and you can do so ONLY if you can digest the idea of your friend turning into your brother-in-law!
What to Do
Weigh the odds well before you plunge into a relationship with your friend’s sister. While she may be sweet, hot or sexy, do you dare tread such discomforting territory? Only if the above scenarios appear easy to handle should you go ahead with the relationship.
