    Is the BFF of a woman that I dated 3 times off limits?

    My Main question: Is the BFF of a woman that i dated 3 times off limits and if so is she permanently off limits, or will that eventually change?.

    Secondary question: How should I proceed at this time?

    I met a lady through a dating website and dated her 3 times over a 2 month period. I didn’t feel any strong chemistry after the first date, but she seemed like a nice lady and so I decided to give it a little more time.

    On the second date I met her best friend and I felt an instant chemistry with her. After the third date I decidedd it wasn’t going to work and said that I would like to remain friends. She seemed OK with that. A few weeks later I was at a bar and the best friend was there and we became very friendly and I thought she liked me.

    However my original date found out about it and was VERY upset and said that I needed to learn the rules of dating. That a woman would NEVER date a man that her best friend had dated.

    So my questions — Is this a rule of dating and if so is the best friend off limits for ever? Second question – what should I do now?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.
