So, if after date two, you sense your bud isn’t cool with the situation, even though she said she would be, you’ve got to talk to her and figure out what makes the most sense for your friendship. Basically, it means that you don’t date your friends exes or crushes – unless you get their approval.If he keeps mentioning her every now and then, drunk dials her after every party, compares every new girl he meets to her, then he’s clearly not over her. Don’t tread those waters unless you want him to hate you for life. We tell you when it’s still okay to pursue things with your bro’s ex. If they’ve moved on and apart in life, you dating his ex might not be a big deal eventually. If you two genuinely like each other, your best friend would eventually understand, if not immediately.If she dumped him, or worse, cheated on him, chances are, he probably still hasn’t forgiven her. Quite blatantly put, you’d get a lot of chances to hook up or casually date a lot of girls. Getting involved with his ex is definitely going to be messy, so make sure at least the feelings are genuine.
If she’s not over it, it’s going to ruin your friendship, and you need to seriously consider that being making a move.
Do you go for it, even though your friend was with him first? She not only said it was okay, she was the one who made it happen!
Dating your friend’s ex can be a really, really bad situation. But the more I hung out with him, the more I realized he kept asking me about her, asking if cool things I did were her idea, what she was up to.
First of all, pray to God you never get stuck in this dilemma – it’s the worst ever.
Ideally, the Bro Code demands that you should never date a bro’s ex. It may not the most ideal situation, but it happens, and it happens to the best of us.
