My best friend just announced to me that she is dating my ex, who we have both remained friends with for the 5 years since we broke up. I know it is pretty selfish of me to be upset, but it is really strange seeing her with the guy I lost my virginity to. And also because they are so wrong for each other. But she is too good a friend to lose over something like this so I guess I will just have to deal with it.

ok it really depends on the situation...i would never date anyone of my best friend's boyfriends...however i had a friend in high school. we were in our senior year and i started dating a guy she dated for one week. one week i tell you a year prior! but i have been dating him since and its been 4 1/2 years and she had the same bf for over a year when i started dating him...i asked her first even though she had only casually dated him for a week a year before i thought it proper to ask and she said it was ok, and he had been my friend for a while...after i started dating him she hated me but seriously they only CASUALLY DATED FOR A WEEK and she was seeing someone else for over a year and it had been a year in between and yikes...oh well he was worth it! but i would never in a million years date my best friend's ex ever...i love my girls too much. i hope that doesnt make me sound like a boyfriend stealer but seriously they only dated a week and a year before i dated him and she didnt even like him! and its hard around here to not date someone that none of your friends had ever dated...its a small town and i have a lot of friends. I make it more of a point to never date anyone that they were serious about or cared about or even said they didnt want me to date them.

I did that once and our relationship lasted 4 years so it wasn't that bad.

I am married to my ex best friend's husband...things are not always as they seem. I'm probably a little older than most here, so give it time and you may find yourself with a different outlook. Walk a mile in someone else's shoes... Revolution People. Revolution

Well, I married my "best friend's" husband - things are not always so cut and dry. She was cheating, (I did not rat her out),and they broke up. My then husband and I broke up and we acted on something that we had always felt. Would I cheat? No. But often you are attracted to those people you spend the most time with. He and I have been together for 5 years, married for 2. We couldn't be happier and isn't that what it's about? We had been miserable with our previous partners. I miss my friend, but I wouldn't change a thing. Revolution People. Revolution

I would never do that to my bestfriend, you have to know your limit, what goes around comes around, I love my Bestfriend, and i won't hurt her on purpose.

I would never do that, no matter what. Its just crossing a boundry and I know weither I was with someone new and was happy and what not, it would still kill me to see him with her. Unless it was a short relationship..i dont see too much harm..but its just not cool. period.

Had it happen to me and it sucked big time. Two people who know pretty much EVERYTHING about you hooking up? No way. I could never do that. I mean, years down the line, probably no big deal, but when the breakup is still fairly fresh, no way. Just remember, anything you told your ex about your friend and vice versa is becoming pillow talk.

Did this once in high school and it ended a great friendship...wasn't worth it!

Domiva if everyone was really OK with it then I don't think there would be a problem.. but a lot of people would be really uncomfortable and/or feel like it was a huge betrayal of trust. It just depends on the situation and the people involved.

it would be very weird to see a friend dating one of my exes and so i would never do that to a friend. it would also be really weird to date a friend's ex especially if they've slept together.
