It’s old news that we all sometimes want what we can’t have. That doesn’t make it less perilous but we dare ourselves sometimes believing that we can get away with almost anything. Here’s a list of some of those occasions you know you ought to run away from but you just find that you can’t help the craving to be otherwise.

A Friend’s Ex

Resist the urge. Date these women at your own risk.

In most cases, it’s usually in the scenario where your friend has divulge one too many information to you about the person and once they are seemingly through, you want to give your charm a shot. However, if the separation between your friend and the lady wasn’t mutual, beware. There’s no bigger blow to a man’s self-esteem than to be rejected in favor of a friend.

A Friend’s Sibling

Proceed with caution. Tread carefully while pursuing these women.

It will interest you to know that about 20% of men have indulged in dating their friend’s sibling and about 24% of women couldn’t resist this as well. In most cases, it just feels like the familiar zone to be because of the affiliation with your best friend. However, if the relationship sours, don’t expect your friend to back you up. Chances are, he’ll protect his sister.

A Close Friend or a Co-worker

Make your move. These relationships assume a strong foundation.

It will interest you to know that about 61% of men and women have indulged in turning a close friend into a love buddies. It often feels comfortable because the lady already has the potential to be everything you need in a girlfriend by virtue of being your close friend. However, if you’ve been a confidant for her most lurid dating stories, chances are she’s not open to an upgrade. But if, after hanging out, she starts referring to the two of you as “us,” then you’re in. Otherwise, learn to be comfortable in your zone – friend zone.

Your Boss

Resist the urge. Date these women at your own risk.

While about 8% of men have fallen prey to this, 7% of women also have yielded to this temptation. It may appear that your Lady Boss is great at telling you what to do and perhaps you’ve often fantasized how that boardroom attitude may transfer to the bedroom. Another aphrodisiac for you as a man is the secrecy required in this kind of relationship. Well, remember how your broke ex-girlfriend destroyed your expensive gadget before she left good to leave you? Now imagine dumping your boss at the expense of your job, of course. And to make matters worse, once coworkers get wind of the situation, they’ll assume you’ve been merited on favors.

Your Own Ex

Resist the urge. Date these women at your own risk.

While about 38% of men have indulged in dating their exes, 54% of women have. It’s almost like the perfect comfort zone. You’ve been there before, it’s safe, and there should be no surprises. If perhaps both of you haven’t been able to date other people, the urge to come back together is even stronger and it has nothing really to do with love. You’re just hungry for sex or companionship and she might be, too.

Perhaps going after something we know we can’t have is intriguing and when we get it, we feel like we’ve achieved something out of this world, let’s be mindful of the things that really matter. Ask yourself really, why do you want this? If it’s for show, you should know it’s just a matter of time before it blows over your face. Well except you like drama and live for the psyches, it’s usually safe to stay within limits. Or not, just my thought. What do you think?
