Host Thoughts on Exes and Oh-Nos
I literally said it the entire episode…NO, DON’T FREAKING DO IT! Maybe it’s the single girl in me, but friends will always be more important than some guy. Don’t ruin a friendship over a guy, whether you have a crush on the same person or your friend has dated that person and you want to give it a shot. No. The answer is always no in my book. Please give me a scenario where it worked out with no drama and maybe I’ll consider it.
I’m the idiot who tried to date a friend’s ex and when he got mad, I wasn’t quite sure why. It was pretty ignorant of me, though, and I think I’ve learned a lot since then. I think that the choice to get romantically or sexually involved with the ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend of a good friend is a difficult one that you should only make if the potential for happiness is that important. You should consider factors like time of the relationship, how long ago they broke up, and if it was a bad breakup or not. There are a thousand different scenarios where it’s a terrible idea, and maybe one or two where it’s the right one. Don’t fuck up!
