    This just came to mind since it's close to Valentine's Day.

    Will you pursue romantic feelings for a friend/buddy of yours at the risk of affecting your friendship (as status quo)? What are your thoughts?

    This has been done a few times before...

    It's ok if your sure of the answer
    ....... because - if not you might just end up with neither

    I usually wouldn't...particularlly if we're good friends. Feels like too much is at risk. If you don't know someone and you embark on a romantic relationship there's less risk...(it feels...)

    The others are right. Do you think its worth the risk and do you have a chance? If you can answer that with yes, then I wish you good luck in trying. Its always a 50/50 thing.

    Yeah, but would you do that? Risking a friendship for an hour in bed?

    I tend to keep friendships if I feel there important it's not worth it to me to risk that for something that might not work out.

    If we were truly both on the same page then maybe, if not.

    No! Bonds of frienship are sacred...why risk it?

    Guys - If you can't make it last for more than an hour then you are definitely not doing it right. OTOH - If you can't complete in under 15 minutes and make both partners happy, you're probably not doing it right either.

    It depends, does the other guys have a choice in the matter? A relationship is more than just how you feel. How does he feel?

    Other than that, if a person is a good friend either he knows already or you just are not being yourself around him. I think if you can't tell your friends how you feel then maybe they are not as good a friend as you think.

    I think until you find out one way or another you will just be dangling a carrot in front of yourself. Be honest with yourself and what you want and be willing to accept the fact that it may not turn out the way you want. I guess this is growing up like the song goes.
