Let's say that your friend broke up with their partner after an argument, and deep down you are happy about this. You finally get to have the person of your dreams. As you approach them, something stops you. This is your best friend's ex. Should you go for them, or are they off limits?

it depends on how yer friend feels
i mean some people might feel betrayed if their friend dated their X... whilst others wouldn't care.
personally i belong to da 2nd category... i'd not care... if they like each other then i've gotta shut up :|1

This is a severely sensitive area. There is a lot of grey area on this issue. I've actually been in this situation, and it can get ugly!
My first boyfriend and I dated for 6 months. Everything was good, at least I thought. And because he was my first boyfriend, I fell really hard. This made the break up even harder.
It also didn't help that my ex kept coming back saying he wanted to be with me.
He dated several girls after me, but then my ex and my bff got really close. I didn't know it was happening until I 'accidentally' (and I use that term loosely cuz I'm not exactly sure still if it was an accident or not!) found out on MSN (from an MSN status... this is how long ago this was lol).
Anyway, my bff and my ex started dating secretly. This showed me that my bff knew it was wrong and decided to do it anyway. She started seeing him and then she thought I was stupid. She made these statuses that were acronyms for his name. (ie. If his name was Ben her status would be "beetles eating nutritiously <3<3<3") So anyway I found out because one day she posted his name with hearts, and I was all confused and she was all "I don't care about how you feel". So we stopped being friends. She was being very selfish and she later admitted to her wrong doing.
Anyway, it can really break a friendship. Unless it was mutual and both people just fell out of the relationship and wanted out, then I can see that working. Or if it was someone they had dated in elementary school and it was no big deal.0
