Best friends

Hi all, So what's a best friend, in your opinion? The reason I'm asking this question is because I've just finished reading the post about secrets by our Cl. Another question I have regards friends exes. Is it okay to date them? Im asking this because lately I've been thinking of my high expectations and contemplate lowing them. I have high expectations regarding dating, but sometimes, I think Im too nice and should break some rules that I have.

As the 12 Step Program says, "Expectations are premediated resentments."

Not sure what you are asking here. What makes a friend a best friend? OK to have secrets? OK to date friend's ex? OK to lower expectations?

Too many questions. Not enough information!

Just to answer your question about dating your BF's ex (cause I don't really understand the rest of the questions), I'd ask the BF first if she minded.

My best friend and I have been friends since we were 2.
