Home Alone on a Friday Night

Dating my ex-boyfriend's friend isn't turning out to quite the experience i thought it would be. It seems he enjoys dating a lot of his friends ex-girlfriends. Do guys do this a lot? I understand being really attracted to a friend's ex, but more than once or twice seems like they are playing some kind of game. Is this some kind of strange male bonding thing???

Naw, that's kinda sketchy. I guess if he's a bit of an odd guy or somehow quirky looking, girls may need a warming up period before realizing he is quite likeable. I can see how he may develop this track record and I guess it makes sense if he is only desireable to girls who are already known to him.

If, however, that isn't the case and he just likes being #2, well, that's probably not cool and I would expect that he doesn't respect or like you for you. Dump him.

Of course, my analysis depends on the circumstances under which your relationship began. If he was the reason for the breakup and not on he rebound, I need to start over.

Typically if there is a pattern....there is a reason. People are usually creatures of habits, but habits form for reasons...they don't just spontaneously start.

Just my $.02.

Try dating someone outside of your group of friends.

Why would you hook up with your ex's friend? That's just stoopid.

Is it me, or does this thread have a misleading title?

Better question is, how does this guy still have friends to get ex-girlfriends from? It's one thing to date a buddy's ex, but when you start to make a pattern of it you'd think the friends would get pissed.

Maybe if you post a photo of yourself we could offer a better analysis.

The pattern is that it is easier to go after women that already know you than it is to strike up a conversation with a total stranger.
