The only opinion from guys was selected the Most Helpful Opinion, but you can still contribute by sharing an opinion! I have three older brothers who have all been quite overprotective while we were growing up. Now they are just overprotective when it comes to their friends. However, we are all really close and usually hang out together on the weekends so I've gotten to know their friends pretty well. They have this friend that is really good looking and he's a really sweet guy. We've always kind of flirted with each other but up until recently I was in a relationship and never really considered dating him.
My one brother told the guy he should take me out sometime to I guess get me back into the dating world but my other brother seems to have a problem with it. I understand why it would bother him but I can't seem to get this guy out of my head. I would never want to screw up my brothers friendship and I have thought of the consequences if we date and things end badly.
Jun 02, † Many people would say that your brother don't dictate who you should date. And that you should have the power to do what you want. But that choice lies with you, and on whether or not you are okay with the possible complications of a breakup. Firs. Or he decides that he doesn't want to date you anymore, he may worry that your brothers will be p*ssed. Maybe the one brother knows things about his friend that makes him feel this guy is not the best for you, who knows.
We really haven't had too much alone time to talk about our feelings so I'm not really sure where he stands. We don't have each others phone numbers so we only see each other on the weekends when we both go out with my brothers. Since my one brother is ok with it he told us both that he would handle the other brother but I'm not sure if it is even a possibility to date this guy or not.
