What's the proper amount of time before dating someone who has been going with one of your good friends? Do I ask for permission or what?

There is no formal proper amount of time. There is the unwritten "guy" rule that says if it's within about 6 months, you should just inform them. I'm not in favor of that, but some guys feel obligated to their friends. I know that many females also have this unstated rule.
