So I work at my family's restaurant (cook). My older brother (24, married for a year and a half with the girl he's been dating for most of the past 10 years with their first child about 5 months old now, they're perfect together) owns it and is partners with my father. I like a girl who works for us (waitress) and we are pretty flirtatious sometimes, and I think there's a good connection between us, and she recently became single. So I want to ask this girl out, but my brother can tell I like her, and has basically told me that he really doesn't like her as a girl for me (she smokes weed, does shrooms and LSD, but I don't, anymore). I respect his opinion a lot, he is truly my best friend (and I have a few close friends, and another brother, but he and I are extremely close), and can understand where he's coming from because the work relationship might be strange if it didn't work out, along with the fact that when he and his current wife broke up (about six months) he went out with a girl that worked for us, and I think that might be part of his rationale. Should I go with my feelings and see what happens with this girl, or should I back off of the situation?

If you start a relationship with this girl, will your brother be really mad? He has valid reasons for not wanting you 2 to get involved. (Possible disruptions at work, drug use.) I think he's just looking out for his little bro. Only you can decide if getting closer to her is worth the risk to your work and family life...and hey maybe it is, what do I know? haha
