    Think of it as a blessing in disguise. If they can be such snakes do you really want them as your best friend and boyfriend?
    trueee its just a huge shock that she's done that to me wouldn't have ever seen it coming

    Yes, I did just assume. What's wrong with that? I didn't say everyone is straight and I didn't say anything other than straight is the wrong way to be. If the other person was a girl/boy whatever, what I said still stands. You don't need those types of people in your life. Relax.

    I was unaware that you had exclusivity over an ex-partner.
    You do when it comes to your friends, that's how it is with most people anyway.

    Personally don't care if they have sex but date? that's beyond disrespect.

    it was kind of mutual, he kept thinking i was cheating on him when i wasn't
    it was around a year on and off
    she was my best friend for 6 years but now shes nothing to me

    What is your favourite bird?

    Between Stephen Hawking and Alex Trebek, who would you shoot? Assuming you HAD to shoot somebody...

    Skittles or M&Ms?


    Can you explain, to someone who doesn't ****ing understand relationships, why this is a big deal?
    Why is it problematic if a person whom you are no longer in a relationship with, and do not want to be in a relationship with, is in a relationship with someone else?
    I don't get it.

    whether she refers to exclusivity or not depends on the way the partner gained the prefix.

    It probably feels like the end of the world right now but he'll probably end up doing the same thing that he did to you to her, except she (possibly) won't have her best friend to turn to.

    well, firstly he hurt me so many times and she was always there for me telling me that i dont need him and can do better and that she hates him, so obviously that was all a lie. I might want nothing to do with him but its a best friends job to be loyal, and dating your best friend's ex just goes against anything being a friend stands for

    So how did you find out? I dated my ex's best friend after he broke my heart and almost my neck, as a way to take revenge and to show him that they're not that good friends after all. (btw he hit me because he thought I was cheating with his best friend which I 100% wasn't)

    You can't stop people doing that kind of thing of course, but why on earth would you keep them around as your best friend? I wouldn't want to be friends with anyone who thought that was ok.

    Yes, because I am capable of moving on from previous relationships.
    some people need to block their ex and forget about them to move on though. If your best friend is now dating them that makes it impossible to completely avoid the ex and puts you in a dilemma. Means you have to stop seeing your best friend now until you've moved on properly.

    Honestly
    if something had to happen it had to happen
    If the perfect man was dating your bestfriend and they broke up
    WELL first off this happened and i told my friend its ok make sure you treat them right
    You cant stop someones happiness because of friendship
    a real friend wont mind and will allow it to go on
    So far that happened to me twice in one year
    but im care free and know its for the best
    quite frankly now the 2 pairs have been going out for 2 years

    I don't get it.
    Because if you are friends with someone you don't do things that will hurt them? If you value their friendship and care about them. It is about the friendship not the partner. It is a sign they don't give a crap about you and are selfish and just generally not a nice person.
