4. Thou shall not date or be-friend your bestie’s ex-boo
So maybe your bestie’s Idris Elba-look-a-like beau is a jerk, but that doesn’t stop you from wanting him in the worst way. No matter how strong the attraction is or how much chemistry is there, if your friend was intimately involved or invested into a guy, he’s off limits. If you choose to indulge your desires, you will most likely end up having to choose between your friend and a man. Even if she appears to be totally cool with it, the complication is usually not worth the risk. There are three things that friends should never share: underwear, perfume and ex-boyfriends. In a sea of Idris Elba’s also swims a dozen Laz Alonzo-s, Lance Gross-es and Mechad Brooks look-a-likes that all haven’t bedded your bestie or broken her heart.
