Can you date your friend's ex?

So my question is simple. Are you allowed to date your friend's ex-B/GF? That is to say: The only reason your friend met your Ex is because of you? (i.e. You and Frank are friends, and would never have met Wanda if it wasn't through your friendship.)

I personally think it's a no-no. I think it's a very disrespectful thing. No, I don't treat my GF as a possesion, but I think it's a bad thing to do, period. There are too many fish in the sea, so why would you chase someone I've already dated?

Having said that, are there exceptions? What if they're in different city/country and they hooked up? What if you were the dumper? What about time - i.e.: after 2-3 yrs, does that even matter? What if all three of you met at the same time, and after your relationship ended, s/he jumped in? Does not having sex make a difference?

Be fast or be last.

Hey, you let her go...so she's fair game.

Still, it has to be done respectfully though as it may be a delicate matter.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

Re: Can you date your friend's ex?

Though I don't know from experience, I'd hazard a guess here is no better way to screw up a friendship than by sleeping with the ex. Don't do it. Don't talk about it. Don't even think about it. As you said, there are other fish in the sea. Why risk it?

Or unless she was just a sex toy and is now being passed on which doesnt seem to be the case so my answer is still no

If you value the relationship with her more than the friendship yes. After all he either got dumped or dumped her and now the way to be around you is to be around each other again

Must obey the sheep dog

Re: Can you date your friend's ex?

Definately a no under any circumstances. If he is a good friend and you want him to stay your friend don't do it.

Disagree completely. And by experience.

Not only did I date my best friends ex, I married her. In April we will have been together for 18 years.

Oh, and my best friend? Still is. Known each other for 20 years. It was semi-awkward at first, but we're all still super close to this day. Hell, he came up and spent a few days with us when we first moved here to Mizzuo.

Re: Can you date your friend's ex?

Hehe, I'm not the only one chasing a friend's ex, BTW.

I think it's a dirty, rotten thing for someone to chase their friend's ex. I would never do such a thing.

But keep the responses coming. I think it's an interesting debate.

Be fast or be last.
