    Well I have this friend who went out with a guy for about a year, anyhow they broke up.. and since haven't really got on mainly due to her fiercely arguementative nature and her belief that he hasn't gotten over her... I then have another friend who is dating this one of this guy's mates.

    I like another of their mutual friends (my friend's ex and my other friend's current bf) and he likes me BUT the friend with an ex has said she would be very pissed off with, ie. not talk to, anyone who got with/went out with/hung out with her ex's mates... in my eyes, and that of a few friends who I have asked, this is a bit of a ridiculous thing to say and to request especially as I view the guy I like as a friend of a friend's current bf, rather than that of another's ex... if that makes any sense???

    I know this is confusing, but I would appreciate people's views. Thing is I know that friend's come before bfs/gfs but this friend has a bit of an irrational/that-doesn't-make-sense-at-all nature and she gets pissed off at ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING......

    If i read this right, the person you like is still going out with someone? If this is the case, you need to back off and allow the relationship that they are currently in to run its course and then think about something or move on, as its not nice to be wanting someone you cant havre obviously.

    If i read it wrong, i think you need to tell your friend that you cant help who you like and that you want to see where things will lead, she cant get in your way, and hope she sees sense.

    You have no such obligation to your friend, she's being ridiculously petty. And besides, does she not have a problem with your other friend seeing one of his friends?

    It was confusing but I think she means a mutual friend of her friends ex and current boyfriend, so it's a single guy.

    OP I'd say go for it, it's not like you're going out with your friends ex. She should get over it and understand it's your decision and she's not even got any issues with this guy apart from the fact he's her ex's friend. Your other friend is going out one of his friends so if your mate has a proper issue with you surely she wants your friend to break up with her boyfriend too?
