I have been trying to navigate this new dynamic, and I hate that I feel like this.
I really enjoy spending time with Eric; he is a great guy, and I have a possibility of something serious with him, something that Max won't give me. Granted, we were wasted when the conversation happened, so it was a little blurry, but we both know she approved before we did the deed. He has repeatedly told you he doesn't want anything serious, and you do. It would also probably make your best friend dislike you more. Handle it in a mature, discreet way so that all parties can remain friendly afterwards.
Okay so about a year ago my best friend started dating my brother which my mom encouraged and I agreed upon. My advice is to tell them each discreetly, creepy things about the other. My twin brother, Griffin, and I were very close when we were younger. Well, considering your his sister, I'm not too sure this cliche plan would work. Not even a minute later, he came running up the stairs louder than your drunk uncle telling inappropriate jokes next to the kids' table at Christmas. It's your life; who am I to tell you how to live it? My brother and I have always been very close, and obviously my friend is my best friend, but now when I hang out with them I feel like a third wheel…with my two dearest confidants! I got sober after going to treatment. After years and years of growing apart, fighting constantly and genuinely believing I would not talk to Griffin after we left for college, I actually began to like him.
It's a pretty normal thing to feel possessive over your best friend - I got a little jealous of my best friend's boyfriend when they started getting really serious, because she was confiding things in him that she had previously confided in me, and I felt a little pushed to the side. But remember that your brother knows this guy, may have heard him talking about other girls before, and knows how he respects them. You may privately set yourself some ground rules that may help. If you have even the slightest feelings for the brother or sister, you need to make a quick decision. Luckily, it's not awkward around her brother, but I still won't look her parents in the eyes.

Not that you need permission, but definitely consider their feelings and their point of view. But seriously, I would be the perfect best man. She can still be your best friend, but the friendship will have to change. I think it's entirely legitimate to be upset that your best friendship has been supplanted by a romance with your brother, but obviously it's something you'll need to work to get over. It's a widely known fact that people all over the world fantasize about their friends' hot siblings and vice versa. It would be normal to acknowledge that she's not the most beautiful girl in the world, but for a relationship to work, there should be physical attraction.
I eventually cussed her out and told her how I feel about her, even though I probably shouldn't have, and ever since she still holds a grudge. Then this past November I decided to give it a try again. Are you sure this lady's still your best friend? Don't tell him that you're already seeing his friend. Resentful would be a word I could relate to more than jealous. She probably did fall in love with your brother, all of what your expirencing are simply different phases of her grieving. I was actually on one of their first dates, which was fun for me but awkward for Griffin. It was in that moment that I thought, his mom fucking knows.
I could have locked the door to the bathroom. Who wants to picture their sibling getting busy with anyone, let alone with your best friend? Is it rude to say that I think I am the prettier identical twin? Have you ever dated a friend's sibling or other family member?

Normally, girls will play off the hookup and act like we don't like the guy, but when he smiles at another girl after she holds the door open for him, we plan a carefully worded text to let him know he is ours and should not be giving another girl attention.
