1. If your friend's bf/gf asks for your number (and you are opposite gender), should you ask your friend permission before giving?
No, just give. It is the only action that makes sense.
Lets break it down.
Why would you not give? Its either your friend don't trust you, or your friend don't trust their partner. Only a distrustful person will have problem with requesting/giving numbers. Either way, its not your problem.
A trustful relationship would just view the number exchange as friend circle getting closer. There are a myriad of reasons why exchanging numbers would be useful. E.g. emergency contact, asking you to know the partner better, making surprise plans, etc.
2. If you accidentally offended your bf/gf friend, you prefer the person (regardless of gender) telling you directly or tell your partner behind you and the partner coming to approach you?
I would expect my friend to tell me, otherwise I would think our friendship means nothing if he/she does not trust the relationship to withstand some confrontation.
