Can I be friends with my drug dealer?

I think my dealer wants to be my friend (or maybe he just wants to sleep with me.) Is this a conflict of interest, or should I cultivate this relationship?

To give a bit of history, I've been "dealing" with him for over 2 years now, and we've always been friendly; I make it a point to chat for at least a few minutes before I hightail it out of his place (and "hightail" is the right word - relief doesn't come much sweeter than the relief of a successfully negotiated coke exchange.) But lately, he's been more and more chatty, and just the other night, I got a rambling 2am "what's up" message from him that made me just a tad apprehensive. Is my interest in his coke translating in his mind to an interest in him? I've always paid full price... is there some etiquette here I'm missing? Come on... I'm just a naive white girl from the suburbs. Any help?

I wouldn't recommend it personally. Although if you rebuff him too often he may sour on you as a customer. Tough call.

i agree, keep it business. there's an imbalance of power there and too much potential for it becoming a "pay to play" situation. it's also a losing proposition for him, either you'll become unwilling to pay, or you'll get over his come-ons and find another lead.

Thanks for the advice T and anonymous... So far I've tried to keep it cordial but detached. it IS a fine line. Unfortunately there's no Emily Post on drug etiquette...!

First of all your stupid. Cocaine is for either people who want to kill themselves or their stupid. Secondly all guys want to fuck everyone. Truth? Yeah I thought so. I tell it like it is.

She's not stupid. She's a degenerate hipster. There's a difference.

I wish someone would spike New York's coke supply with Thorazine. That'd solve a lot of problems.

I'm leaving these last two up, because I think it's funny that 1)the first one is calling me stupid and yet he/she is the one improperly using the word "your" and 2) I don't live in New York, which I've made very clear.
