I've been close to this girl for years, shes 17 and I'm 19, but I'm best friends with her brother, my age. Like I said she's been this close and at a house party last week she was drunk sitting on me all night and hugging me, I thought it pretty normal but when she held my hand out of everyones view on the balcony, it was pretty nice and I thought somethings going on. She wasn't uncontrollably drunk, and so I kissed her before she went home with the sole purpose to let her know I'm interested if she is. It was harmless for me and her, her brother even knows and while he wasn't happy he got over it, he thought it was a drunk mistake, lol. But the next day was far more interesting, as we both confirmed our likiness for eachother in the most charming way we could, and we've been texting since. She's a very nice girl So today I had to ring my friend and tell him about this. Should've told him earlier perhaps but I wanted to meet him to explain, and then 4 nights of work showed up. I ended up having to talk about it on the phone, because we all had planned camping tomorrow night and he obviously needed to know. Now it's awkward! He said some about the two of us being old enough to make our own decisions, and some about it getting in the way of our friendship if it ends in disaster. Well that can happen, but none of us are the wreckless type, should he let this stop us? I want to know what people think. I don't think me and her will get on with it if it really pisses her brother off, but it's not going to be easy for us, and he currently is kinda pissed off. I'll try to meet him soon and have another word about it. His main concern is that about what happens when things are finished up. That and how strange it would be, and how "strange" it is for me to want Claire "of all the people", but the answer to that isn't very convoluted. Thanks.
