So basically my guy friend I've known for a long time, who is mutual friends with a couple of guys I've dated over the past few years, told me he wouldn't date me because "he went through that with his ex". My exes have moved on and have new relationships. It's been over 7 years since I've dated them. It just seems like a lame excuse to me, especially comparing it to what he went through with his ex. If you really were interested in someone, would you really care who she dated? And why assume that all girls are alike? Help me understand this.

That my rule. I don't hook up with my friend's exes. I feel it's being disrespectful to my friend no matter how he feels about it... it's how i feel about it. Also, if the ex is interested in me AFTER she's hooked up with my friend, well I find that disrespectful to my friend and me and doesn't do anything for my respect for her. And... why? There's millions of other guys. And I wouldn't be interested because of my rule. You gotta have some principles that you stand firm on. Builds character.1
