I'm not really an expert in "awesome guys" ( though I used to ondly believe that I was one ).
You're all presumably adults. If our mutual friend chose to introduce you, she cannot, logically or in terms of sheer good manners, expect to therafter dictate what the pair or you can or can't do. And if she thought you "weren't at the right stage in your lives" --- why on earth did she introduce you at all ? Its your point two that makes sense --- she fancies him herself, and wants him for herself. So she's being selfish, not considerate. And then they quarrelled, so she doesn't fancy seeing you make a close friend of someone she is no longer friendly with.
She has put you in the dilmma, and should be Big enough to get you out of it by not objecting. Friendship is important to you --- but she is insisting that her friendship with you must be held more important than any other friendship you might form. Is that fair ? Is that friendly ?
