Have you ever broken up with someone and gone for (or been approached by) their friend?

I’m watching this show and the kid is said his girl dumped him. He was like “I’m the one thats sad, she looks fine on social media. I liked a couple of her videos.” The dad was like “son don’t do that. You’re supposed to shop for a new outfit and then go for her best friend.” Its sad how many folks I know that have given this advice to others 😂

Have you ever broken up with someone and gone for (or been approached by) their friend?

But I can’t even front, I’ve had my fair share of friends, cousins, brothers. I rarely do it as a revenge thing. I just simply liked them before I liked him. And now that we’re over 🤷‍♀️ Fair game right? Wrong. I always made this odd pact with my exes that we wouldn’t date nor sleep with eachothers friends/fam. I mean he still did. I just enjoyed making out, getting my t—ts sucked on and getting fingered. I ain't fck em tho 🤣 #FeelFreeToList

there's a reason I can’t be someone’s friend. I might strike her ex man or flirt with an ex’s friend at any time after 🤷‍♀️ Here lies no loyalties

  • Suffice to say, I have not directly targeted the friend of my ex. Even at my lowest moral state, even I thought that was off limits. I've also never been approached by the friend of an ex for a hookup or more; I had a fling who talked about me a lot to her friend, and after the fling got into a relationship, her friend asked if it was okay to pursue me and the former fling didn't care. I thought it was slightly awkward but only briefly before I was distracted by pelvic sorcery, as most young men are predisposed to do.

    I've even gone so far as avoiding relationship or intimate moments with women who've been with my friends, brothers, enemies, etc. The criteria for a woman to have avoided being disappointed by me was long indeed. I just couldn't get over the mental image of being tunnel-buddies with someone I actively knew or worse, actively disliked.

    • Thats good to hear

  • Happened once. The two friends had a bet. And the " winner of the bet" would be the one to hit on me ( I didn't know about the bet until after the breakup). Thankfully, the girl that I liked, won the bet. After our breakup, her friend approached me. Said she liked me before the previous relationship. That they had a bet, her friend won, etc.
    I politely declined the offer.

    • Sadly a lot of people are apart of bets and dont realize

    • Apparently. 😑 Just noticed your Spider Gwen pic. It's awesome.

    • Haha thanks :) it was my pfp back in like 2021

  • Yes, a week after breaking up. I did not entertain it. I wasn’t ready for that, but there’s nothing wrong with people who do that in my opinion.

    • I mean its wrong but that dont mean it ain't fun 😂

    • 🤣🤣🤣. Agree, I just don’t think I could personally mentally do it

  • Never

  • Twelve years ago, my wife and I had some things to work out. Nothing that involved cheating or dishonesty, more about my career path and family time. Anyway, she must have told her friend, because her friend called me and asked if I wanted to go out for some drinks and talk about it. Of course I said no but that bitch called ever day, then finally said, we should "hook up" since my wife and I were having problems. My wife and I never even thought about ending it, we just took some time to think things over and were fine. I thought about not telling her about it but I didn't want her crazy ass friend accusing me of anything out of anger 'cause I told her to get fucked! Of course their friendship ended.

    • So glad you told on her! That lady was awful

    • Yeah and it took my wife and I totally by surprise. We had known her for years. I think she kind of lost it after she went through a bad divorce.

  • I tried to get her sister but then this other guy who was way more toxic than I was started flirting with her because he thought he was really hurting me and it made me lose interest.

    They ended up having a very confusing relationship that creeped a lot of people out.

    • The fact you admitted to being toxic 🤣

    • 💀💀💀 I wanted to try it out

  • It happened once, although it wasn't a break-up, but a rejection.

    Asked out an acquaintance at a get together, she made an excuse. Her friend butted in and said she was free, asked if we could go somewhere that evening.

    Ended up in a long friends with benefits with said friend, and even now she's still friends with me and my wife.

    The woman I approached just faded away, but from what I heard she was alright with what happened. After all, a woman's trash, is another woman's treasure...

    • Were you saying the woman is your wife or that she is friends with you and your wife

    • She's a friends with me and my wife. Sometimes she comes over.

  • Lol! You seem like the type who would bang a friend or brother out of revenge. I have never done that and never would. Although I have caught myself being interested in a few sisters after it didn’t work out with the first girl.

    • I would never have sex with their friend or brother, especially out of revenge. But i would totally makeout with his friend or brother if i was into them before i was into him

    • Man you must have fast hands! Because I find it hard to believe that you can make out and play around and all with out it becoming sexual. Like If my hands got in between your legs something’s else will too.

    • Its all about self control. After that first boyfriend, no one else has ever gotten more out of me then i wanted them too... and aside from one other guy, that wasn't much.

  • Yes and at the time it was literally right after which felt stupid weird. I mean we just broke up.

    • Yea it is odd when its right after. But thats usually how it works. How did your ex react when she found out? Mine legit cried for the first time of knowing him. But we got back together later on 🤣

    • She never did find out to my knowledge. I pretty much shut it down so I didn't tell her and I am sure she didn't say anything either.

    • Shit y'all lucky people wasn't messy over there 🤣

  • I’ve never dated ex’s friends. Seems weird. What if we run into an event together later.

    • I wouldn't date/fck them either. But can't promise “nothing” will happen 😂🤷‍♀️

  • Yeah... with my first ex.. one of his "friends" already tried while I was still seeing my man and the worst he tried to get my number from him.. like who the hell does that? I had already a year prior told him my disinterest...
    Anyways max a week after we broke up he found my insta and texted me and I ignored him and his follow request, then a few days later I saw him in the city and he asked me again and I told him again to stop bothering me and just then it stopped

    • Im never surprised when people get with eachothers friends because in high school and college, when one approaches, if they get rejected, the others fall in line shooting their shot. Its just always been like that here.

    • Seems so weird to me... what happened to the bro codex?

    • Lmao brocode and girlcode dont mean shit. I promise you that 🤣

  • Once, and I was not interested, bc they were best friends. It was bad enough we just broke-up I didn't want break-up a friendship too.

    • The friendship ends with the relationship for me lmao

    • Me too, I wouldn't have a problem being nice to her friend as along as she is nice to me, but I wouldn't go out of my way.

  • nope... neither, lol

    • Such a great person

    • lol... I would not think those situations are so common... are they?

    • Well based off these answers below, i think its common on GaG 😂 and in person, its pretty common in high school and college. But after that, nahh

  • Yes a few times , but nothing became serious from it , it was just sex pretty much

    • Nothing came from it? Well what did your ex think of it

    • nothing came of it from me , I was just vulnerable at the time and they took advantage of me , but their friendships didn’t last from it , and they ended up hating each other but at the time I just didn’t give a fuck , I know guys do this shit as well , once they see someone is on the market they go for it , I agree it’s a fucked up thing to do to a so called friend but people are selfish and only care about themselves

    • My ex was upset but she was my ex so I would say what did you expect me just to sit here with my finger up my ass , she came on to me so what I was going to say No lol

  • Yes twice after I broke up with exes
    Once an ex's best friend's friend texted me about wanting to hang out and wanted more
    Another time an ex's new friend ran into me at the store and told me she peeked into my shower when I was still together with my ex and she wanted to hook up

    • Damn i hope your ex ain't friends with them anymore lmao

    • She is haha but that's a long story

  • Nope, never did that. After each breakup, I found someone else who didn't even know about the previous girlfriend.

    • Thats good

  • Yeap

    • Lol did the ex care

    • Nope, he's one of us, we tend to date amongst each other

  • I am not entirely sure but I think an semi-ex's mom made me an offer. She was still a fine looking woman and much more reasonable than her daughter. A mother and daughter would have been one for the belt and I did think about it. Plus I really wanted to piss the daughter off a lot. But nah, I let that go through to the keeper.

    Have also been approached by a friend. I think the friend thought she should fuck it better.

    • A friend is one thing but man you fck my mama, i’m goin to jail 😂

    • Ha! I think it would have pissed the daughter off too.

  • not close friend

    • Lmao. I imagine someone being like, “it was his friend but not his friend friend, so it dont count right?” 😂😂

    • lmao… that definitely counts but this was more like, acquaintance, old classmates lol

    • Oh well yea that doesn't count then haha. You’re in the clear 😂 i’m in the eye of the storm
