do you date friends? just wondering if anyone does. some people seem to be strictly against it, while others do it all the time. i'm also wondering about the various reasons people have for being for/against it. i actually find that i'd much rather date a girl who i've known a bit and hung out with for a while. i rarely consider dating a girl when all i know is that she's got good "statistics" (i.e. eye candy, good grades, likes to laugh. blah). this tends to become somewhat awkward sometimes because a good portion of my lady friends are against it. still worth the shot nonetheless.
