Love Talk: Dating Your Friend's Ex

"It's just the...RULES OF FEMINISM!"

You know the unspoken rule of friendship, don't date someone your friend has already dated. Right?

I had a few friends who were part of a different, larger friend group in high school.

For some reason, they all seemed to be dating each other throughout the four years.

Janet would date Ian, they'd break up, Ian would date Maggie who was best friends with Janet, Janet would date Kyle, Kyle would eventually date Maggie, Ian and Janet would get back together, etc etc etc
There were like, 6 or 7 guys and girls and they'd just trade partners but still sort of remain friends even though it was probably super awkward?!
It's easy to date in your friend-group but does it cause more problems if the romance ends?

Do you guys feel like the "don't date friends' exes" rule is valid or are there exceptions?

I feel you should talk to the friend about it first
I never had to deal with that but I would say no, I would not like it
well I think it's fine if they ask their friends first but I would think that would seriously ruin friendships
I wouldn't do this for the life of me. That's just one thing I have never done or will ever do. XD it's just not cool with me. Cause if my friend had a relationship with their ex, why would I jump into that as well? It wouldn't make sense to me.
I was fooling around with a guy once before I found out that he is my best friend's ex. we didn't mind at all... Long story

Personality transformation and personal development
You focus on developing the body, the brain, and the memory. You like to do this with great enthusiasm. After all, you want to be physically and mentally fit. That's great, but have you ever considered developing your own personality? How can you develop and transform your personality and actively give yourself more time for personal development in everyday life? Your personal development is basically divided into three important areas. However, you do not go through them one after the other, but they repeat themselves again and again: 1. Knowledge: realization of yourself is the analysis of the actual state. Here you first become aware of who you are and what makes you. But this analysis is not finished after one time. The more you work on yourself and your personality, the more often you will learn something new about yourself. So never lose sight of reflecting on yourself and getting to know yourself over and over again. If you want to transform your personality for the better, you can use amazing online resources available for free. 2. Acceptance: Wait, didn't we just say that personal development is about changing yourself? Why should you accept yourself now? It's simple: we don't want to turn 180 degrees and become a different person. We may also just accept ourselves as the person we are and not have to get rid of every little habit and thought. Start accepting and loving yourself as the person you are. This is the only way you will be able to grow in the long run. Personality Development it's more about.., negative beliefs and habits that keep you from living to your full potential. 3. Change: Last but not least, change occurs. Of course, this doesn't happen overnight, and as we've already established, it takes stamina, a concrete goal in mind, and the will to change. Don't let setbacks drag you down and be mindful and loving with yourself along the way.
