When you are younger I feel like your dating options are limitless. Think about it, when you are in college your social interaction is at an all-time high. Once you transition into full adulthood with responsibilities, kids and less time you become restricted to the guys that you meet along the way. When I was younger I remember guys that have tried to date my friends would approach me and I would turn him around with the quickness. In fact I would not even think about dating a guy who I knew dated an acquaintance or even someone that I interacted with a lot but did not quite consider a friend. Now I am wondering if it is possible or realistic to avoid guys that have once dated a friend, associate, co-worker and etcetera.
For me personally I could not imagine dating a man who has been with my friend regardless of how serious or not the relationship was. On the other hand I would not mind if a friend of mine dating a guy I have had some dealings with as long as it is not my child’s father and maybe two other guys I have been with. Think about it, you maybe went out on a date or two with a guy five years ago and nothing serious happened, would it matter if your friend dated that guy? Of course serious ex- boyfriends or a “baby daddy” are off limits (that would be so grimy unless your friend is totally okay with that). So what do you all think? Do you think it is okay to date a guy that has been with your friend? In today’s world is it truly realistic to avoid situations like this? For me, I respect the girl code. It is the law of the land for me…
