What do you do if someone shows interest in you, but you are not interested in them, but you are interested in their friend?

    This guy has been checking me out at the gym, but he does nothing for me. His friend on the other hand is way hot! Is it rude to get to know the guy that's interested in me, to get to know the guy I'm interested in?

    No, of course it isn't rude. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. All fair in love and war and all that...

    depends on how you get to know the guy, if you make it clear you aren't interested in anything and he still would like to persue some sort of friendship then go for it

    if you let him think he's got a chance so you can attempt to slip in under the radar and try and pick up his friend instead then thats low, underhanded and no.. you shouldn't

    but I don't think you really needed to ask that question, its basic being a good guy stuff...

    I have to 100% agree with lilTanker. You should let the guy know that you are not interested in him sexually. But hey, you might make a friend in meantime. Then if things work out you can meet his friend.

    But don't lead the poor bloke on. Just wrong.

    Cheers,
    Keith

    I agree too. Consider it networking. Don't play games with him. Let him know you're only including him in your circle of acquaintances for business purposes. Then make the most of your relationship to get introduced to the hot friend. Now, you have to remember, that hot friend might not have any more interest in you than you have in your new network buddy. What goes around comes around stud.
