Maybe when I get to the bottom of this drink.

Damn it. Get me another drink.

/a lot of drinks later maybe

Seems appropriate:

Oh no, I'd never date her. I'd FARK her... but I'd never date her.

No. There are plenty of people on this earth. You just do go there.

I did my best friend's ex half an hour after they broke up, in the back of his van, while he drove us around.

We didn't have all these weird rules and hang-ups about that sort of thing like kids do today.

brap: My best friends are my exes so this is a little complicated. Sure, I guess I would date me if I wined and dined myself and regaled me with witty banter held the door for myself and didn't get too pushy when I made the first move on me, why not?


Yeah, but are you clingy? I mean, you know, are you going to be whiny biatch if you get tied up at work and don't call yourself?

T. Dawg: I married my ex's best friend, and my ex is the one that set us up. He was even one of our groomsmen. He and Mr. Dawg are still really good friends.

Really, all it did was set me up to be able to tell jokes that would make both guys blush at the same time.


This is strange. So does the topic ever get brought up about how you've had several sexual encounters with both of them?
 
2012-03-24 11:15:32 PM  
This has to be in theory, since in practice my female friends don't have men I can contemplate being interested in.

Most of my friends are male. I guess in theory one of my male friends might have a bi ex who was cute. I'd ask my buddy for the straight dope on why the guy was an ex.

As for my male friends and one of their female exes, I might bang her in a threesome, but I don't think it would be fair to date a woman no matter how much I liked her. I like men too much. Any woman I was dating who was worrying that I might be craving a little bit of beefcake...would inevitably be right.

Would I date an ex's buddy? It would depend entirely on how long I had dated the ex, why he was ex, and what the breakup was like. An example of a no harm no foul breakup is the ex and I were just sexing and he finds this girl who's the love of his life and wants to get exclusive with her. He wasn't planning to keep me, I wasn't planning to keep him, he found True Love, good for him. Great. Don't cock block between me and your cute bro. Thanks, pal.

Plus there's the chance that he might cheat on himself with his other hand. Bro Code or not, you never let your left hand know, and who wants that kind of potential drama hanging over their head.

Stay friends with yourself. Have fun with yourself. But dating yourself is only a road to ruin...
 
2012-03-24 11:23:19 PM  
Hrms. That sounded like I was being horrible about my female friends' men. I think it's just that something about being in the "man of my friend" zone makes a guy less "noticeable." More platonic than friend zone (since, unlike most women, I will cheerfully fark in the FZ).
 
2012-03-24 11:24:08 PM  
I did/am.

One of my best friends in college started dating a girl who was in our mutual large group of college friends. She broke up with her HS boyfriend and they started dating. They dated for a few years and we were all good friends.
Then they broke up. Her and I had stayed good friends the whole time and once she was single things just sort of clicked.

We've been together for about 4.5 years now and I have every intention of marrying her :-)

A Bloody Disaster: Marysue: She must have hurt you pretty badly.

Heh... While completely unrelated and admittedly, I'm a bit snockered... I miss my ex soooo much. Yeah, it's been 5 years and yeah I've laid others as I'm sure she has as well... I'll always wish that she didn't forget to love me. I could wrap piano wire around my heart and divide chambers for hours upon end and it would only be a fraction of the difficulty of 2 minutes of life without her.


I feel you, I just broke up with a guy who's been my best friend since I was 12. (I'm 27 now.) He's turned into someone I don't recognize and I look at it and I want to scream in his face that it doesn't have to be this way but he's so far gone... I don't know. And he doesn't love me anymore. Which sucks.

Interestingly, his best friend who got out of a jail a year ago is coming up to stay with ME for a week on Tuesday. I think he's trying to bang me. We'll see what happens.

Given that my best friend had a habit of dating strippers...

No, notsomuch.


I guess I should expand on that.

Some strippers are the best housemates ever. You come home and the dogs are walked, there's hot food on the stove, the place is clean, it's everything a bachelor place is not...

And then the screaming starts and you come home the next day and all your cookware is stolen.

I learned not to leave ANYTHING valuable downstairs when there was a stripper g/f in the house.

And remember to discard worn-out sex toys when you replace them. I don't care how bored you get, that black patent leather ankle-strapped 5" stiletto with the rough spot that catches just wrong is ex for a reason. And don't even talk to me about the bottle opener.
 
2012-03-24 11:39:58 PM  
This was actually offered to me by a friend's ex who I was into. I played the bro loyalty card and was pretty much out of the running.

Then he got married and stopped hanging out with anyone. She got even hotter and started dating this other guy. Kicking myself ever since.

/lame story, bro
 
2012-03-24 11:47:43 PM  
My wife is a friend of my last ex-GF. Who married one of my best friends. We're all still friends, and when geography and work schedules allow, we still get together.

The amusing part about the whole situation is he asked my permission obliquely with a "hypothetical." My response was "hopefully he can do better than i did." I found out at a party about 3 months after we'd broken up. As I was about 1/5 of Maker's in, I was more confused and irritated that I was the only one who didn't know. She was my ex for a reason, so I had no anger at them dating.

The best part was when my wife and I were going through the per-marital counseling with our pastor, and seeing her face when we answered the "how did you meet" question.

//well, in fairness, so did my ex
 
2012-03-24 11:53:11 PM  
How ever long your best friend dated the girl for you cannot date her for that long, it is bro code.

Since my Best Friend is of a different ethnicity than me and both of us generally date within our own ethnic groups that generally rules out either of us going after each others exes though/

Wow. I knew a guy who married a stripper. This was the same guy who was so tolerant he stayed friends with the creepy, sociopathic loser all the rest of us (from the same college) had, one by one, cut from our social circle. He was one of the last two friends defending creepy loser. Guess who the stripper ran off with?

Gay men can make fantastic roommates. Straight men can find dirt and clutter and such invisible. "See no evil." A gay guy didn't grow up subconsciously taking for granted he was going to have a wife picking up after him, so he's more likely to pick up his own shiat. Makes all the difference in the world.

The downside is it can be a bit frustrating to be a straight chick and have a cute gay roomie. I was in my 20s at the time--getting hit on all the time by perfectly acceptable, cute, straight guys. Just too darned bashful to actually get some, most of the time.
 
2012-03-24 11:55:32 PM  
Dated my best male friend's ex-wife. He's still my best male friend and she's now my closest female friend. By the time I dated her he was already married to someone else so that wasn't a real issue. After we broke up she and I didn't talk for a couple years but we've been close friends again for the last 3 to 4 years. We make great friends but not such a good couple.
 
2012-03-25 12:10:01 AM  
my best friend and i have similar taste in women. if they are an ex it's probably because they were just not compatible with our lifestyle. we hooked up with the same girls a couple times, but that wasn't about a relationship. we were just young and dumb.
 
2012-03-25 12:54:28 AM  
Friends have done all the hard work. My job is to swoop in, point out the flaws, show them how fun "new and different" is, spill my seed, and leave them in a puddle of shame and embarrassment. Oh, and blackmail my way into BJs every Thursday.
 
2012-03-25 12:56:33 AM  
No, I didn't catch it the first time around.
 
2012-03-25 01:04:48 AM  
Didn't just date her, I married her. Our 20th anniversary is in November. He is still one of my best friends.
 
2012-03-25 02:21:26 AM  
No.

I might enjoy being with Jack since she owes me one, and I'd go for Miranda since I've always liked the crazy girls, but not Liara, because I need Garrus in a great place to do firing algorithms.
 
2012-03-25 02:30:07 AM  
I had an ex-girlfriend that dated an ex-boyfriend. They both asked if it was ok first.

//of course it was fine, but it was neat that they asked
 
2012-03-25 03:18:13 AM  
Ex's, cousins, sisters, once even a fiance.

I'm amazed people still talk to me, but they do...
 
2012-03-25 03:43:27 AM  
I would under any circumstances touch any of my best friend's exes. He goes for the bat shiat insane ones because he thinks he can be the shining knight in armor and save them from themselves.
 
2012-03-25 04:27:01 AM  
My Ex-wife is an ex for two reasons: 1) was caught with someone other than myself in our bed, and 2) I was young, dumb, and stupid at the time trying to be a White Night. In retrospect I should have just been patient, I ended up marrying my better half in the end.

As a side note, the Ex has tried to contact me three times since then. Once before I married my current and twice after (hopefully, after she talked to my daughter the last time she won't call anymore). She is very bat shiatt crazy.

/As I understand she has driven away more men from relationships since then....
//Back to our regularly scheduled programming.
 
2012-03-25 05:12:13 AM  
HELL NO

Said best friend had a penchant for dating first class psycho cases. Above & beyond the Bro Code, that would be a crime against Reason itself.

I am dating my best friend's ex.

/With his blessing
 
2012-03-25 05:26:15 AM  
If they've been broken up for longer than they were together, it's fine.


Although I tried it, turns out my friend really farked this chick's head up. Shame, she was hot.
 
2012-03-25 06:55:35 AM  
Yes, cause she should have been mine anyway, the coont.
 
2012-03-25 07:43:50 AM  
Yup. Married her. He's no longer my best friend.

I just do that because they are really stellar in bed. I mean like WOW.
 
2012-03-25 08:45:41 AM  

dezba: Nope. Never.

3 months after I left my husband my (former) best friend moved him into her home and they began a relationship that neither one cared to tell me about for obvious reasons. I found out about them 3 months into their relationship when his other girlfriend contacted me via facebook and told me about it. At the time, BFF was on the road driving from SC to FL to spend a few days with me. When she got to my house I got to let her know that I knew about her new boyfriend and also got to inform her that he'd been cheating on her through the duration of their relationship.

We're not friends anymore. Husband and I have since reconciled. Every couple of months she gets trashed then sends him an email telling him that she hates us both, feels sorry for our kids and wishes she never met us. I couldn't care less about her misery.

You sound like a winner.

2012-03-25 10:28:28 AM  
Never dated 'em, but my BF was a frat boy, and when he went camping with frat, I nailed his sorority girlfriend. She was a hot one. Pity she would not date me after they broke up. She's into bugs and works for Dole, last I heard.

Well some of his exces have mentioned to me that he's lousy in the sack because he's small and only does missionary. Which just makes it more sad, but yet at the same time hilarious.

Wait, what?

There are guys that only do missionary?

I thought they issued Average Guys (TM) a quick tip sheet on How To Appear Experienced In Bed because at least in my 20s it was like every guy I met was working from the same play book for the first time in bed together as far as what he wanted: Missionary, me on top, my ankles on his shoulders, 69 somewhere along in there, finish missionary.

I guess it was just weird coincidence.

Things would get individual later, but it was like that first time they were working from a checklist and were trying to show off their moves. Me, good Southern gal that I was, was in the early dates mode of smile, nod, be impressed, let the guy lead on the dance floor.

Bro code would dictate I'd have to get his permission. Which, he'd happily give.
But my best friend is fat and only dates fat girls. So, no. No fat chicks for me.

2012-03-25 04:08:51 PM  
No way would I do that. Granted, I have been married almost 13 years so my wife would probably have a few issues with it too but even before we got together I wouldn't have. There were a few times where various friends and I would both have a thing for the same girl but even then I would back off and wish him luck. One of my friend's ex's was ok looking and all and made it quite clear she wanted to fark me like mad. I told him about it so he wouldn't get upset about any rumors he heard going around but he was just fine with it. I didn't care though because I wasn't going to date or fark a friend's ex.

I had a few friends end up dating my ex's though. One, I wished them both well and thought they were really good together. Granted, we weren't together any more because we just weren't a good fit and happily moved on after though so no hard feelings on my part. My buddy even stood up and told me face to face so I wouldn't find out any other way about it and I congratulated him on it. Another time a friend started dating my ex almost as soon as she had dumped me. Try as he may to apologize for that I never did even come close to being friends with him again. Funny thing is a while later the girl and I ended up making our peace with each other and she would forward his sappy "I want you back I love you!" emails to me and laugh about it so he really just ended up screwing himself on that whole ordeal. What's really funny is he passed himself off as some big bad punk rocker but in his emails he'd always be quoting these really horrible pop songs trying to win her back.

Sounds like you need to be farked what I named "quarterback style". Where you're on all fours but the guy (me maybe) is standing/squatting giving it to you, much deeper penetration. Just a suggestion to pass on to your SO.
