Quote from strixflash
Another least popular poll,right?

Well, it's relevance to manga be damned, the poll reeks of a tween-pop magazine...

Quote from RattixEmpire
I think do nothing is the best option, if my best friend and I liked the same guy, then I would support her, as she would support me and we would continue on with our friendship, often if you like the same guy, you can have allot to giggle over about him, like how he gets a twitchy eye when you mention the word rabbit (btw I don't now anyone who does that.)

Wouldn't that be closer to 'Keep your friendship and fight fairly'? I interpret "do nothing" as 'you' are the only one who's aware of the situation, yet decide not to confront or confide in your friend about it, and see how things play out. I could be wrong, though.

Quote from BlackOrion
What if i had know the guy all my life and i just met some random girl that i got a shot on but he has a big crush on her? If it makes me beta to step back, then call me what you want, i love my friends, other wise we wouldn't be friends.

In your scenario, you make it sound like you have no real feelings on the matter. Naturally, you stand aside if you don't really care, but that's not quite what the poll asks. I believe the poll asks what you would do in a love triangle, where your friend and you are in love.

You would kinda lose in all the situations, wouldn't you?

I guess the most non-conflict answer suits me best, so the last one.

that's assuming you're a guy. It'd be sharing a guy for girls.

Er yea, I'll agree with keep the friend and toss the random one out.

But it seems that 3rdGuy is picking friend over lover anyhow.

That'd be the "End your friendship and undermine them" option I'd say.

Wait, not at all. Though on discretion I won't delve deeper, philosophically. But its a free country. So far, anyway.

@ KJacket: don't multipost, use the 'edit' button

why not try and fight it fairly? Waiting is just a waste of time anyway, so you can as well do your best... One should be able to get over some unrequited love and a friend should be able to be happy for his/her (best) friend...
But I guess just waiting is the way to go for people who have enough time to lose...

No offense, mangaupdate's thread style allows both 'reply' and 'quote' options. I simply use the former because it would allow readers to read all relevant replies to that post rather than scrolling through the entire thread and reading multi-quotes that they might have missed or have no clue where the parent post started from. Also handy when the discussion stemming from that post gets long, rather than one person quoting the previous again and again, taking up lots of unneeded space.

Of course in the case of forums where my reply doesn't show up right underneath the parent post, one post with the relevant quotes would be the most logical way.

By the way, I am reading this from the comments section directly in the poll (or in threaded view).

If it annoyed you sorry 'bout that.

edit: good to know then I'll take this back, I don't use threaded view so that's news for me.

It is okay to double post in the news forum, since the threaded view relies on it if you're quoting other posts

Sit back and do nothing. I mean, even if I find someone attractive, I'm not interested in dating, and I consider myself asexual so I wouldn't wanna screw some random person either 0_0..
So yeah, if there's a guy my friend likes, I'll cheer her on ^-^.

My list:FMA, Death Note, DeadmanWonderland, Code geass, Detecive Conan, Pandora Hearts, Black Butler, Loveless, Kamui, Girlfriends, Murder Princess, PsychoPass, Steins; gate, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Ghost stories (English dub)...
