Rules dating friends friends

But once you do, remember, those fragile threads now binding you together are, in fact, titanium.

There’s no acceptable time limit: probably around date five or six, but thirstier types may make it to the second round of pina coladas on your first meeting – being tagged or photographed for someone else’s socials supersedes all other societal norms.

Will this window into their world enrich your relationship or destroy it?

I don’t have any official figures on this, but I imagine many smouldering hearts are bluntly doused by a poorly worded caption, shirtless poses, witless #sponcon, over-filtering, the permanently puckered pout and matching ironic eye-roll – why ruin this for yourself?

Or, you made friends on Instagram, hooked up, but noticed they’re big on Twitter and are dying to @ them.

Or maybe, for reasons I’m sure are clear to you, you’re desperate to see what their racist aunt comments under their profile pics, and wish to friend them on Facebook. What will it add to your life to know where the person you had sex with twice – once at theirs, once at yours and, if you’re counting, a kind of halfway affair at a party – goes for eggs Benedict, or what kind of outsized pool inflatable they favour on their holidays?
