This week's poll is from Higanbana. Assume that you and your best friend like the same person. How would you act in this love triangle? And of course there aren't options like "I don't have a best friend" or "I would never love anyone" or something like that. Just go along with it, please. Humor me.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related):

Previous Poll Results:
Question: What's the best thing about summer in the manga / anime universe?
Festivals with yukata, goldfish, fireworks, takoyaki, masks, etc - votes: 4393 (41.3%)
People telling ghost stories - votes: 450 (4.2%)
The cicada background noises and nature scenes - votes: 1347 (12.7%)
Less clothes, swimsuits, and bikinis - votes: 1698 (16%)
Vacation subplots at beaches, hot springs, etc - votes: 1578 (14.8%)
Complaints about the lack of air conditioning - votes: 628 (5.9%)
Hot temperatures and hot tempers - votes: 547 (5.1%)
There were 10641 total votes.
The poll ended: November 17th 2012

In hindsight, I really should have had an option like "I don't like summer" or something like that, but oh well.

This happened with me and my best friend ince. We both met the same guy 1 week apart, and liked him. We decided to just see how things played out and let him decide. He chose my best friend and I backed off. They were together for 2 years and once I got to know him better, I discovered that we weren't really compatible anyway. For both me and my best friend, our friendship is more important than any guy. We would never undermine each other, but would let things play out and see what happens.

The pen is mightier than the sword...and considerably easier to write with.

I'm very much someone that likes to sit back and let life flow, so I'd probably choose to do nothing and watch how things unfold.

If you fight with dirty methods and get him, but then you lose your friend, how will that be that be any good? Starting a relationship with guilty feelings and recklessness will just make it harder for everyone in the end.

Omg, this poll would reveal the b*st**ds in this world none
Some of the options, if you chose them, you can't be considered a friend. dead

I had a situation similar to this happen to me as well.

My friend didn't know I we liked the same guy, so I lead her to believe I was more interested in the guy's best friend. I would constantly talk about all of his good points in front of her, in an attempt to convince her to forget her interest in the first guy. My plan worked, but a bit too well. In all of my effort to convince her I managed to convince myself as well, and we both ended up liking the same guy again.

It has to do with "love triangles" being a common development in manga.

i chose "do nothing" because ive never confessed to anyone before..and before long whatever circumstances bounded me to this person would be lost and we part ways without him ever knowing that i liked him. i think i would react the same way to a love triangle; i'll probably just sit back and do nothing.

I would never tell anybody which person I like, it's too embarrassing.

Same here... Most I've ever done is try to get closer to the person and drop hints... So yeah, nothing DX But I'd never undermine a friend, even if I had the guts to say anything...

I choose do nothing because that is probably what i would do, i'm not the kind of guy to plan ahead of time.
