Is this actually a thing?

So for some context, me and the fiance started watching How I Met Your Mother a few weeks back and are near the end of season 3.  So if you're worried about season 3 spoilers of said show, you might want to stop reading now.

In case spoilers from episodes that aired four years ago are a concern for anyone

Anyway, in the show Barney just slept with Robin (Ted's ex) and everyone's freaking out about it.  I mean Ted freaking out about it?  Yeah, Ted has always been obsessive about Robin.  But no one is acting like Ted is being weird about this and that's why it's a big deal (because they know that Ted is going to react badly), they're acting like it's genuinely a bad thing for Robin and Barney to sleep together.

And I don't get that1.  So, internet, here is the question...

Is this an actual thing, getting upset because a friend slept with one of your exs (who is also a friend of you both)?  Or is it just the show being overly dramatic?

If it's an actual thing, can anyone explain it?

1Neither does the fiance.

The basic thought is that there is a chance they might get back together. By sleeping with a friend's ex, you're ruining any chance they might have in getting back together. Usually after a six month period it's generally okay, but one should still ask permission before-hand in any case.

It's one of those unspoken guy rules. Like the "always take the furthest away urinal when possible" rule.

... wait, so you don't get upset when your ex dates (and presumably sleeps with) someone that isn't a friend, but if it's a friend then somehow they've ****ed up your (not likely) future with the girl?

And the urinal rule makes sense.

It's perfectly reasonable. You never, and I mean never, want one of your friends to say to you "...while I was bangin' your wife..."

Therefore, once your friend sleeps with her, even if you thought you might have had some small chance of making it work with the girl you just can't do it.

... that's not really an explanation for why a guy would be mad that a friend slept with his exjust why  some conversations might be awkward.  Though really, if you're in the habit of telling stories that include a "while I was bangin'" then I think you may have already conquered or ignored awkward.

But awkward isn't what we're talking about, it's anger.

 I had a female friend I'd hooked up with before, and she invited me to her wedding (irrelevant to the story, but she's married to another woman now)... The morning of the wedding, I told her I had a migraine and I'd been awake all night (only a slight lie, since I did have a headache and I had been up all night although it was just goofing off online) because I knew I'd have trouble looking the new spouse in the eye at their wedding when I knew damn well that I'd been fooling around with my friend concurrently with her first hooking up with her new wife...
 It took a while before me-and-my-friend time eventually evolved into me-and-my-friend's-family time. (Although my friend and I still hang out by ourselves fairly often (but not hooking up), her family has basically become my rent-a-family for when I feel like doing family-type stuff or I have some kind of family coupon for someplace, etc.)

 On a related note, she had actually originally been married to one of my other friends for awhile before she and I were friends (and I was at that wedding), but they'd been divorced for about a year before we started hooking up and the friend was completely out of the picture and living in another state by then.

 A good guideline for dating a friend's ex is to wait at least six months and then make sure the friend is cool with it or at least not going to shoot you both while you sleep, lol.

 As for why a friend might be angry with you for hooking up with their ex, part of it could be that they see it as you succeeding where they failed, and also they might see it as a betrayal of your friendship with them... I'm sure there are other reasons, as well.

There are reasons they call me Mad...

They "guy rule" is a stupid rule. Really the only reason for it is people being jealous and immature creatures.

As mentioned sometimes before is that there could be a chance of them getting back together and you getting involved can either take that option off the table or maybe you two wont stop even if they do get back together. First response is more a selfish thing and the second is could lead to problems all around. whatever.

On the other hand there is the whole bad breakup thing. In this case the two dont like each other and he wants her out of his life. maybe she wants the same. You dating/hooking up with your friend's ex keeps her in his life and could cause problems. Really only an issue if ur friend is a rooster and the gal is an irritable itch.

All in all though a lot of dudes tend to be what i said in my first line. jealous and immature. They see their ex with their friend and they start getting insecure. Insecure dudes tend to show this through violence and aggression. blah blah blah.

I really see no point to the rule. they is your ex. get over it. if you can't it's ur problem not mine or your ex's.

Supposedly there's a tribe in the Amazon in which every guy does it in every woman and they believe each guy is partly father of the resulting kids. And there's also a similar one in China where people don't really leave their family homes and the girls invite as many men over as they want.
And neither of them is supposed to have the word for "jelaousy"

It's not a posession thing.  It's not a we might get back together thing.  Those are excuses to hide the real reason: emotional uncomfortability.  You know your ex is gonna hook up.  When it's put in your face, it makes it harder to handle that because you can't put it out of your mind.  You see her, you see him, you see them happy, you remember when you used to be happy with her, it hurts, etc.  And it's awkward.  If you break up with someone or they dump you, you typically did so in order not to see each other all the time anymore.  There's issues there and you're no longer able to address them properly.  Meh, it just makes everything complicated and it works in the opposite way a breakup should.  That's why guys don't like it. 

That said, it's different depending upon certain factors, too.  If it was a short thing, it'll matter less.  If the friend isn't that close, it'll matter less.  If he dumped her it will matter less. 

Oh, and who watches that piece of crap show on purpose anyway?  Srsly.

There's many emotions going on.

Possesive is only one of them.  Though rarely the strongest emotion (girls tend not to stick around at all if you where highly possessive to begin with).

Longing is another.  Sex is a powerful drug, once you have it, you want more of it.  You get to see/imagine the person you had sex with turned on, but you are denied it.  Like smelling good food, but you have to starve.

Pain is a third.  Rarely do breakup happen without some heavy negitive feeling pushing people apart.  Seeing them again brings that up.


Most of that happens no matter who dates your Ex.  But if your friend does it, you can't say "she's such a " or otherwise put the blame and avoid the feelings nearly as easily as she will be aroud more often.  Any feelings you do have are brought to the surface, and paraded in front of you.  You also loose your "safe place".  You can't go to your friends house to try and forget it.

In short, you feel like they are rubbing your failure it in your face, rather then supporting you.

my builds
F-111 Interdictor Long (200+ squares) distance ally teleporter. With some warlord stuff. Broken in a plot way, not a power way.

Thought Switch Higher level build that grants upto 14 attacks on turn 1. If your allies play along, it's broken.

Elven Critters Crit op with crit generation. 5 of these will end anything. Broken.

King Fisher Optimized net user.  Moderate.

Boominator Fun catch-22 booming blade build with either strong or completely broken damage depending on your reading.

Very Distracting Warlock Lot's of dazing and major penalties to hit. Overpowered.

Pocket Protector Pixie Stealth Knight. Maximizing the defender's aura by being in an ally's/enemy's square.

Yakuza NinjIntimiAdin: Perma-stealth Striker that offers a little protection for ally's, and can intimidate bloodied enemies. Very Strong.

Chargeburgler with cheese Ranged attacks at the end of a charge along with perma-stealth. Solid, could be overpowered if tweaked.

Void Defender Defends giving a penalty to hit anyone but him, then removing himself from play. Can get somewhat broken in epic.

Scry and Die Attacking from around corners, while staying hidden. Moderate to broken, depending on the situation.

Skimisher Fly in, attack, and fly away. Also prevents enemies from coming close. Moderate to Broken depending on the enemy, but shouldn't make the game un-fun, as the rest of your team is at risk, and you have enough weaknesses.

Indestructible Simply won't die, even if you sleep though combat.  One of THE most abusive character in 4e.

Sir Robin (Bravely Charge Away) He automatically slows and pushes an enemy (5 squares), while charging away. Hard to rate it's power level, since it's terrain dependent.

Death's Gatekeeper A fun twist on a healic, making your party "unkillable". Overpowered to Broken, but shouldn't actually make the game un-fun, just TPK proof.

Death's Gatekeeper mk2, (Stealth Edition) Make your party "unkillable", and you hidden, while doing solid damage. Stronger then the above, but also easier for a DM to shut down. Broken, until your DM get's enough of it.

Domination and Death Dominate everything then kill them quickly. Only works @ 30, but is broken multiple ways.

Battlemind Mc Prone-Daze Protecting your allies by keeping enemies away. Quite powerful.

The Retaliator Getting hit deals more damage to the enemy then you receive yourself, and you can take plenty of hits. Heavy item dependency, Broken.

Dead Kobold Transit Teleports 98 squares a turn, and can bring someone along for the ride. Not fully built, so i can't judge the power.

Psilent Guardian Protect your allies, while being invisible. Overpowered, possibly broken.

Rune of Vengance Do lot's of damage while boosting your teams. Strong to slightly overpowered.

Charedent BarrageA charging ardent. Fine in a normal team, overpowered if there are 2 together, and easily broken in teams of 5.

Super Knight A tough, sticky, high damage knight. Strong.

Super Duper Knight Basically the same as super knight with items, making it far more broken.

Mora, the unkillable avenger Solid damage, while being neigh indestuctable. Overpowered, but not broken.

Swordburst Maximus At-Will Close Burst 3 that slide and prones. Protects allies with off actions. Strong, possibly over powered with the right party.

It's a thing, but it's incredibly stupid that it's a thing.


Also, it's horribly selfish.


Conclusion: People are really stupid, in general.

....wat.


If that was true, no one would ever date someone that a friend had ever dated in the first place, and this thread would not exist.

... so what I'm hearing is that "yes, this is a thing" and "no, we can't really explain it in a way that doesn't make straight men1 sound jealous and petty".

Not only is not just a straight male thing, it's not just a male thing.

What correlation there is between being gay and not having a "no friendcest" rule is just that, a correlation. It happens amongst groups of gay friends, too. Not yours, apperently, but there are two seperate groups made up largely of gay men that I hang out with semi-regularly, and in both groups, there are people who bang eachother's exes, and people who dislike that it happens.

And women do it, too. Dating an ex girlfriend's friend is a huge taboo in many groups. I've run afoul of the no friendcest rule in pretty much every group, even getting crap from my gay friends because this girl I hooked up with was bi, and her ex girlfriend was in that group.


All of it is stupid, childish inabillity to get the hell over a past relationship, but it's certainly not a stupid that's particular to straight men.

I am tempted to make a thread for OTTers to post thire pictures of them and their significant others

Character and world creation are a form of expression. The point is that some people don't have much to say...

12?! I'm not 12! I haven't been that young in at least 7 years! You offend me sir!

But that girl, regardless of who she is, she isn't bad looking.



She's one of the more attractive people I know. Although, for obvious reasons, I prefer to look at my fiance. :P

Most of us aren't 12.  In fact, our 12 year old left us a while back.  That broad does have a nice pair, though.  And I like the hammock.

... why?  The thread was about psychology, and if reality was as strange as fantasy.  No proof needed.

So I asked some of my co-workers at our weekly "bro lunch" today.  One of them said that it's a property thing, that by having a relationship you've claimed a girl forever.  I... uh... really don't know how serious he was.  He kinda wanders into the sexist/mysognyst line of things without noticing1.

The other said it was kinda awkward, but not something to get mad about.

1Kinda explains why he's uncomfortable with gays.  He's afraid we'll treat him how he treats women. And no, I'm not kidding.  I've, in all seriousness, asked him this and after a few minutes thinking he said "yeah, that sounds about right."
