This week’s dilemma:

You and your best friend are both in your forties. You’ve grown up together, and you’ve also watched her two sons grow up. You even used to babysit for them, when their parents needed a break.

The eldest, (Let’s call him Ryan, shall we?) is now twenty-five years old, and lately, you’ve been looking at him differently. You also sense that he’s attracted to you.

One day he tells you that he finds you hot, and would like to date you.

You’re very flattered, but although you also find him attractive, you can’t help but think about his mother’s reaction.

What do you do? Do you honour the friendship and leave Ryan be, or do you date the young hot stud, and worry about the consequences later?
