Incase she's in a relationship, I'll save us both the hassle and not actually approach the one i like..
How do girls feel about this?
I suppose, but I'd just ask the girl directly. It gives her an inkling that you like her, if your friend tells her then they'll discuss you afterwards... Who wants her opinion influenced by her friend? Especially if she's never considered you romantically before, do you want the first time you considers you that way to have her friend put her off the idea?
Or her friend might be protective and say she does have a boyfriend to make you back off. And then you bring a third person into this who really doesn't need to be there.
One of my motto's is only take it from the horse's mouth. Bringing other people into situations just causes trouble.
Ask her yourself :)
