    Well we have different versions of the story but he says I cheated on him with his friend, I didn't even cheat on him I just ended up getting with another boy but I didn't know it was his friend I barely remember it
    You cheated on him. Stop trying to get sympathy.

    Two issues:

    1. Him. You split, so no reason to feel sad becayse hes shown by doing this that he didnt really consider your feelings, so in effect lucky escape.

    2. Her: She could have had the courtesy to tell you. I presume she wasnt the one.How did you find out?

    Dont beat yourself up about it. there will be more exes. Just dont do the same and its one step closer to finding someone you like.
    heard it through someone who knows my friend, yeahh i'm feeling a little better already

    It was named in honor of Mr Obama. I do not know if B&J are planning to produce any Trump related recipes ?

    no, this was a separate issue. we weren't together at this point as i said we were on and off all year. he slept with 2 girls on our "breaks" and all i did was kiss a boy and i had every right to so don't try to twist my words. I dont want sympathy either i mean its nice most people are being lovely but i just wanted to distract myself

    You dont believe in loyalty or friendship?
    Why do you think that I don't believe in friendship? I'm not sure whether to say "yes" to loyalty, because it depends how you define it to be honest.

    That's a potentially gross assumption, though. Relationships can end without either being "wronged", etc. Relationships can end with both individuals continuing to hold a friendship. I would not infer this from the fact that the OP is upset, since people apply this attitude, even when the relationship ended "peacefully", and I somewhat understand that, but the discussion of "loyalty", is simply nonsense to me.
    No, I did not assume anything. I replied to the post where OP stated:

    lol i think i had every right to assume my best friend wouldn't go behind my back and date the boy who broke my heart a million times
    - from which can be reasonably inferred that he had wronged her, or been unjust and contemptible towards her.

    How is loyalty nonsense? We keep our friends close to us and it is wrong for friends to get romantically involved with ex-partners as there was once an element of romantic attraction present. Mixing these things up is going to evoke feelings of jealousy, mistrust and confusion.

    Humans are naturally competitive and mostly cynical so to assume that everything will be fine even if there was an amicable split is naive.

    Therefore bonds of friendship will be broken and there will be no trust there. It is important to stay loyal to preserve friendships, and if someone is not loyal you must really question how dear they do hold you.

    I did miss that post.

    I wasn't calling the concept of loyalty nonsense, of course, and I'm not disregarding the concept entirely, (it seems that I either haven't made myself clear or wrong deductions have been made) I just do not personally understand the statement that I have bolded.

    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.
    But I don't get it.

    Why does it hurt them?

    Why can I be friends with this person, but then go out with his/her ex? They're not dating my friend anymore, now I can.
    What am I missing?

    It was the post I was replying to...

    I went on to explain it - where there were once romantic feelings there will fester jealousy because humans are primitive in feeling like they have a claim to people - we are territorial. Even where the sparks have fizzled away or the relationship has withered away, there is always a part of your life represented in the relationship between you and an ex. If the new relationship works out, it can lead to the ex feeling lament or wondering what could have been.

    You might see your friend happy with your ex and wonder why you never felt that happy, or you might feel resentful that you never brought out the best in that person. This is why it is best to stay away.

    Imagine you have pizza
    and the pizza runs from you
    You are sad because it was yours
    now the pizza ran to your best friend and they are eating your pizza
    even tho they know the pizza was yours first
    and you love the pizza

    This is the worst analogy

    if you respect and love someone like my best friend should, then she wouldn't date my ex who she knows i don't want in my life because he hurt me so much.
    when you've been best friends with someone for 6 years and always had their back and you assumed they always had yours, then to your surprise you find out they're going behind your back and lying to your face as well as not staying loyal to you, that's a HUGE betrayal.
