and girls, if a friend dated your ex would you be upset?
Most Helpful Guy
This is a very hot-water topic that I have personally been involved in in the past. I would not date an ex of my friend's, especially if the relationship was long-term and/or if the friend was a close one. This can put friends on bad terms very quickly, unless if the two friends talked about it. It's not really asking permission to, but more of like 'asking for his blessing.' It's a sign of respect for one another and for what the ex-couple had, and it could prevent a lot of drama and turmoil in the future. Good luck!0
