Not w dating my best friend
Be open about the importance of the relationship and how deep it goes. It also works when it comes to communicating with your best friend while in a new relationship.
If your girl best friend is your first phone call on a bad day, if you spend hours together on a daily basis or if you’re going to respond to her texts while out on a date, your new girlfriend needs to know. Let her ask any questions she has and kindly let her know your best friend is a non-negotiable. We know you want to give all of your hours to your new girlfriend but give us your minutes. Keep telling us the same things about your life that you used to. Help us know we’re still important to you by spending the time to tell us through your actions. Your girl best friend is probably best friends with you because girls aren’t her favorite kind of friend.
The sheer concept of seeing one of my mates with an ex is something that’d affect me for a number of reasons.

My best friend has recently started dating my brother.
Just to encourage you to think about why this fills you with dread rather than it being a cause for celebration?
Follow these few steps for an easier “my best friend is a girl” induction process.
If you’ve ever been romantic disclose that information and where things are now.
Ask yourself if they were describing the same relationship but with different people would you still be feeling anxious or using words like ‘disgust’?
Doing this may help you identify what anxieties you have that are understandable but probably aren’t going to become an issue, and ones where you feel you do need to say or do something – although not necessarily with them. Like this, “I have a dog, I live in an apartment in Queens, I work at a bakery, I have a son, and my best friend is a girl.” Yeah, we know that seems weird, and it’s probably going to be hard, but if you want to continue your friendship your new relationship this is absolutely vital.
