    I think it’s really uncool and pretty trifling to date your friends ex. I mean honestly is the female and male dating pool so limited that you have the go behind your friend like a desperate dog and pick up their leftovers? Also I’ve found from past experiences in dealing with now ex friends and ex boyfriends; that alot of times they go behind you and date your exes because they’ve been attracted to your significant other the whole time. So alot of the so called hanging around you and your mate and relationship advice about breaking up is all just a way for them to pick up your sloppy seconds. Smh

    Never! And if there is someone that thinks it’s OK, they’re just triflin’ and grimey!

  • brenda

    never!!! … stupid question smh

  • jdmann

    A real friend would want you to hook up with their ex if it made you happy.

    • Sha

      That’s an interesting point of view…but i disagree.

    • AngelEyez2187

      @jd, are you right outside of your mind? a real friend? a real friend would’nt be eyeing your ex in the first place. smdh.

    • jdmann

      A friend wants whats best for their friends. Why would someone care what a ex does anyway.

  • Hotmama

    NOPE!! Morals, Ethics, Boundaries, Limitations, Trust, Respect, etc. I can go on with a number of reasons it’s NOT cool!!

    • resurrected

      I like this if you are the type of person who is considering any of these words it would take a long time and a lot of selfishness to even get to a yes it is cool.

  • Hurt

    That actually happened to me. My own cousin did it to me with a guy I was seeing for 4 years. I caught them creeping on my way back from school. I came home early and they were doing them while I’m out trying to get educated. To this day I can’t look at neither one of them and that was 5 years ago. So my answer to that is a big fat HELL NO. What a dumb question!!!

    • AngelEyez2187

      i luv that. so true.

  • clinique


    Awesome line.

    While you can’t stop people from doing what they want to, its not something I would do nor is it something I’m cool with.

  • Miss Perfection Trini Sazon aka Anti -Coonery .

    why would you want your friends leftovers ..nope that disrespect and tacky theres millions of men in the world and to me when a guy goes after his ex’s friend it shows whats to come if we were to get into a relationship

  • ZeZe

    Everyone has they’re own standards but I would never do it.


    It is NEVA OK to DATE a friends EX! YUCK! If you’ll date their ex, you’ll screw their current girlfriend/boyfriend.

    Have some morals!

  • TheOriginalBlkBarbie

    I would never do it. But if one of my friends wanted to date an ex of mine, then so be it. My boyfriend now is the only guy I`ve ever loved and the rest were just temporary amusement. So I don`t think I`d care.

    Still, it`s sad if people want to pick up sloppy seconds. Why not find something new and fresh…

  • AngelEyez2187

    whoooo, girl that’s brutal, that is definitely NOT ok.

  • realmrscunningham

    HELL NO!!!

  • thewife

    In my circle it’s never cool, and for any chick that crossed the line she was cut off ,done, no questions asked.

  • grow up

    He or she is an EX for a reason y should you care about who he/she is dating? If your friend wants to deal w/ them let them just because it didn’t work out w/ you doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work w/ your friend!! Nobody is bound to you just because you kissed them or slept w/ them!

  • Marquis de Sade

    Awwww c’mon people. Certainly, there has to be some sort of MORATORIUM on the ex and a friend to start datin’ eachother without you havin’ a HISSY fit? – Especially if you’ve moved on, and/or are involved with someone else…Cuz if you get angry at a friend for hookin’ up with an ex just proves you haven’t moved on, which isn’t fair to your current bf/gf/husband/wife, eh?

  • deesac

    what is sloppy seconds if that was the case we all have someone seconds or third etc. And if those two found true love and we never had a true connection who cares I’m happy for them because we were not a match. It’s not that serious folks.

  • one andonly

    I think it may be out of line to become cut buddies with a friends ex but say you are really feelin this person and it could be something real, then go for it. Its silly to let a friend stand inbetween you and potential happiness. Who’s well being do you care for more….you or your friends? They’ll get over it, and if they don’t maybe they don’t care about your happiness either.

    1st of all eww and 2nd of all eww.

    I think dudes can date each other’s exes depending on the nature of the past relationship. Women are way to jealous to even fathoming the possibility. My step dad married my Mom’s ex best friend; needless to say it was a messy endeavor.

  • c'mon

    Only if you want to get your a@# beat.
