my girlfriend has a male best friend that was there long before me but he has had a VERY big crush on her but claims he doesn't anymore and my girlfriend does not like him nor ever has in that way and he has a girlfriend currently.. But I was told that he was hugging her with one arm from behind (almost a choke hold type hug) which is what I do. I never have heard of a best friend hugging another bestfriend like that when its usually a couple's thing and more of what boyfriend's do, or atnleast I've never seen it at all. Its not often you see that in "bestfriendships". And many of my friends tell me I should be careful and to be wary.. I never had a problem but thinking about it from my friend's perspective makes sense sometimes because of the fact this was a huge crush her bestfriend once had for her and that never goes away 100%.. Should I be careful with them or just keep doong what I've been doing (not making a big deal out of it)?
