    Always been a cynical so and so (raised that way), so I have never believed in such things as loyalty between friends. And from the people around me, I have been proved right.

    As such, I don't see a point in things such as avoiding getting with who your friend likes etc. Chances are they would screw you over in a millisecond if they are presented with a chance. If they are a good friend, I let them try and get with the girl first, but other than that I don't really care and will do what I want. I never make myself seem really available so it's more of a waiting and seeing game.

    E.g. Was at a university party once. Group of friends all trying it with one girl and one guy succeeds. They all tear him a new one verbally behind his back because he did it at the party when they all had failed and of course she was given the magnificent ego boost. But yeah, I saw these things and studied them, always been more of a 'wait and see, then act' type of guy.
    I hate inflating a woman's ego, and only really validate her if she is nice.

    I find women a bit boring so I never really stick around, I enjoy the conquest and the mental challenge though. I have bigger fish to fry these days though, I want to make a lot of money in my 20s so my aims and what will make me happy (money, it is what is missing in my life) are a bit different from theirs. Problem is when you have friends that don't have it often/easily or are in their first relationship. Any loyalty/respect for your time quickly goes out the window (not that I let it get to that as I keep my distance first). That is the problem I have with the whole thing, as it affects my social activities.
    At the same time, they seem so bothered by women, that any time I do have with them becomes bloody boring because all they do is talk about their women and their problems with them.

    I wouldn't necessarily call it the bro code, but I think it's fairly common practice to not get with a girl your friend fancies without discussing it with said friend.

    It's part of the larger don't be a **** code.

    No one gets hurt if no one gets caught. It's just an ego thing. Besides they would do the same if they could, it's just common sense.

    I don't engage in that activity anyway so the question doesn't apply to me.
