Dating your bestfriends ex
And it’s funny that we see this kind of thing happen in films and on TV, like it’s the norm – it isn’t!
Anyone familiar with Friends will be fully aware of how often they swapped and shared partners.
Not only is that his best friend, but he massively betrayed him.
Despite that, the new couple have a short-lived relationship with Joey’s blessing. This kind of thing would NEVER HAPPEN in the real world because, and I don’t condone violence, Joey would’ve beaten him to a pulp and never spoken to the dude again.
Firstly, you break up with someone for a reason and, as rare as it is you may stay on talking terms, more often than not it’ll end in a series of heated arguments and final abusive texts.
So you’re probably not going to be keen on your mate bringing them down the pub. You’ve shared numerous steamy, intimate encounters – so knowing they’re now getting that from someone you’d have a beer with is a tad uncomfortable, right?
Or, they may say that they wouldn’t be comfortable with it. And if your friend’s prerogative is a them-or-me ultimatum, you need to respect that too.
Getting the latter response doesn’t mean you’re romantically sunk; it just means that you have to evaluate which relationship means more to you. I know that this isn’t exactly the most satisfying answer, but it’s the most realistic one. And if the friendship ends up being collateral damage, it won’t necessarily be that way forever.
So you’ll be damned if you’re gonna give someone else’s penis your blessing.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.Yes, you may (as many people tend to) get completely wrapped up in your own feelings and give the middle finger to anyone who tries to tell you otherwise, but if one of your besties decided to start humping your ex, would you be supportive or forgiving?
The sheer concept of seeing one of my mates with an ex is something that’d affect me for a number of reasons.
For me, the whole ‘follow your heart’ or ‘the heart wants what the heart wants’ cliches should be thrown out the window here.
