Hookup in the same social circle

Once when I was in college I hooked up with one of my guy friends and it was super awkward for a while before things went back to normal. Everyone found out about it because we were all friends and I sort of lost my credibility for a while.

More than the other way around, I would say. It was totally unplanned and unexpected, but it was nice. She was one of the above Hookup in the same social circle No.

Most of my close girl friends are straight-shooters. The advice and perspective they give. Guys are really good at giving dating advice. I also like talking about sports, food, and sex, and most of my guy friends are on board with all of those topics. Probably just the one girl I mentioned above.

Even then, they are not strong enough to where I feel that she needs to know. I have a really close guy friend from college who actually started out as a crush and then turned into a friendship.
