Most Helpful Guy
I would say that you should for sure.
Firstly, you found someone that you potentially like, and even better-- the guy likes you back. That in itself is a good thing and doesn't exactly happen too often. There are many relationships that become one sided.
Secondly, your friend gave you the green light. No matter what happens, she told you that you are ok to go for him. She can't blame you now for starting a relationship with him because she can't simply take back what she said, even if she didn't mean it completely. Personally though, I imagine she did mean truly that it was ok... Considering she is your friend she is most likely wanting you to be happy too.
I'd go for it and see where it goes.
