    If you were single and someone whom you knew had a boyfriend/girlfriend came onto you, would you consider it wrong on your part to do anything? The other night I was sharing a bed with my friend's brother after a night out. He's 6 years older than me and has a girlfriend, but he made a move anyway. I told him it was wrong because he had a girlfriend and he didn't understand why it was my problem in any way. What would you have done? (Assuming you were attracted to them.)

    I wouldn't think twice about getting it on with a girl that was with someone else... like the poll says - not my problem

    I'd probably reciprocate. Not necessarily because I think its right but because I always seem to end up doing things like that. I'm bad

    He's in the relationship, not me. Therefore it’s not my problem. However, karma is annoying, and it would come back…so no.

    Personally, it wouldn’t feel right. I find it hard to be attracted to someone without integrity…no matter how gorgeous he was - unless my feelings are purely physical. But even then, I’d feel guilty.

    I was indeed! But MNBStyle called me Apricot by accident and it kind of stuck!

    Yeah but at the end of the day, say I'm in a bed with a girl and she tries whatever with me and I say "no, you have a girl/boy friend" then who's to say they don't go out to a club the next night and get off woth the first person they see??

    If they're gonna cheat, they're gonna cheat - and if they're fit then, why not you be the one?? :p:

    Just don't get involved is the best thing to do!! :yy:

    See, that's how I felt. Was very tempted though, he was cute. And he kept complimenting me.

    Not really, I don't see how them cheating and their relationship has anything to do with me at the end of the day!

    I know it sounds ****gy and immoral but why does it make a difference to me if the person I'm copping off with is taken or not?? :confused:

    Maybe I'm just evil??

    Not so much teasing as being rude to him! But in a semi-nice way...

    Me: "Bugger off and go to sleep!"
    Him: "Oh but you're delicious, I can't resist!"
    Me: "Well it's a good thing I can resist you then, isn't it?"
    Him: "You're very mean!"
    Me: "Yep!"

    I don't know, I could just never live with myself, it just seems inherantly wrong.

    I wouldn't hold myself responsible for breaking up the relationship. If they're going to break, it'll happen whether I pull him or not. That's why it's weird - just this "feeling" that it's still wrong.

    Because it will be directly your fault, as opposed to somone elses fault. You cant know for certain that they will 're-offend'.
