Does knowing you can’t be with someone make them more desirable? One in four people are currently ‘crushing’ on somebody who is completely ‘off-limits’, according to new research.
Additionally, seven in ten of those currently crushing have either acted on those feelings or are planning on acting on them.
The most off-limits person, according to the poll, is a friend’s partner (50%), with second place going to anybody who’s already in a relationship.
Is it okay to date your friend’s partner if they break up though? According to the results, it’s never okay, as a friend’s ex-partner was the third most off-limits person.
An ex-partner’s sibling (34%) and somebody 20+ years your junior or senior (32%) also scored high marks.
