Just because they did it in Friends, it doesn’t mean it’s OK in real life, guys.Where relationships are concerned, going out with one of your mates’ ex partners is, whichever way you look at it, wrong.Depending on the situation, it might either be a funny coincidence or something that could tear apart a friend group.

dating someone your friend likes-35

Five years down the road, if you're still single and interested in her leftovers, then perhaps you both can consider it. You've been compared to your best friend your whole life, do you really want to add your role in bed to that list? I'm just curious what makes you think that they will treat you any differently?

If he cheated on her, he'll cheat on you, regardless of how perfect you think you'll be for him.4. Just because your best friend wants the best for you doesn't mean she wants you to date her ex-boyfriend.

For a moment, things got so bad that my ex and I stopped talking for a bit, but we're fine now, thankfully.

We met up recently, and it turned out, like with most things, to be a matter of miscommunication. I thought it was understood that exes are off limits to best friends, or hell, even good friends. Here's the thing: I don't ever want to date my ex again.

Basically, I encouraged my gay BFF to hang with an ex of mine because why not? The second I set it up though, I regretted it, because I started thinking about what would happen if they hit it off and crushed on each other. If you're ever feeling temptation island, I advise you to think about how YOU would feel if your ex and BFF hooked up.

Even though I no longer had feelings for my ex, that didn't mean I would want him shacking up with my best friend! Luckily, they didn't hook up, but I felt like my ex would have if given the opportunity. As far as I'm concerned, there's only one rule when it comes to friends dating exes and that is: YOU CAN' T DO IT. If that doesn't get your dick limp, I don't know what will. Often it’s hard to tell the two apart, especially if you’ve not been in a relationship or hooked up with anyone in a while.If you can distinguish between the two and it’s nothing more than an urge for a wild boot-knocking, then stop right there because it’s definitely not worth it.But hey, you wanted her boyfriend so maybe you'll want her name, too. The chances of successful group dates are highly unlikely and if you want to ever bring your bf to those concerts you always attend....well, think again.Basically, don't be the bitch who dates your best friend's ex. The things that used to annoy you kinda start turning you on.I’m sorry, but there’s no way I can hide my unshakable, moral compass on this one – it’s weird and wrong and awful for a number of valid reasons.
