I am the OP and am going to clarify the original post because in trying to keep to the letter limit, the tenses got confusing. I originally dated the brother "A" for a month and half. He has a very common last name. After we finally slept together he immediately went missing, which happened to be before I could meet a large portion of his family. Now 6 months later on a different blind date with brother "B" we were talking about respective families. Almost immediately the stories started to ring very familiar. He was telling a story about his brother who worked for him and it became abundantly clear that I had heard the same story only from a different perspective. Since there is a yuck factor with dating brothers and I am not really into creating family drama needlessly I am bowing out.

30: Maybe she never met him before the blind date. I don't think it makes her a slut, because she slept with her bf at the time 6 months ago and is now interested in his brother. 35: You and I are interpreting the story differently. I read it as her ex-boyfriend dumping her after they had sex together...meaning he probably used her for sex.

wait... after Reading it again, it's not really clear WHO or who she didnt sleep with. OP has a way with unclear grammar. still... fyl for having an unclear sentence, and possibly fyl for not recognising someone you messed around with. if the second is true, you belong on the Maury show

it's pretty clear she slept with a guy 6 months ago and now has gone on a blind date with that guys brother... not that big of a deal if your ok with it just make sure he's ok too wouldn't want to keep that a secret

Lena, it's clear that she slept with his brother. Maybe that guy was her first and only. Maybe he was #100. Who know? Don't judge her. Unless you're projecting, of course...classic Freudian defense mechanism!

Ok, the last sentence is really ambiguous; it could either mean she went out with a guy who dumped her as soon as they had sex, and now she so happens to be seeing his brother. Which isn't an FML to me, more like a chance to rub it in the other guy's face. OR, it means she was going out with the other guy, slept with his brother, and then got dumped. Now I'm confused. But I'm pretty sure it's the latter, because she would've said "as soon as I slept with him" in the former situation. In which case I maintain she's a slut.

Some of you clearly do not know how to read. The fml states that the OP went on a blind date, and after hearing the date's family stories, she realized that she had slept with the date's brother 6 months EARLIER ( as in BEFORE the date). Also, maybe the brothers have a different last name, or they have a common last name (Moore, Smith, etc.) and she might not have assumed that that was her date's brother. Therefor, the OP is not a slut, and this is a FML not a YDI

OP said "...dumped by HIS brother for sleeping with HIM." Clearly both pronouns are referring to the same person so I'm pretty sure she slept with the guy she had a blind date with and just didn't recognize him. At least that's how I'm understanding it

Well it is unclear either way. Saying "dumped me after sleeping with him" is too vague - basically the same as saying "at some point later, sometime since we had sex". You'd want to emphasise that sex was the reason, or just not include it in the FML at all - it's not relevant. It's just asking for double sympathy. YDI for not understanding grammar in any case.

Haha true #5 but I mean this exact scenario happened. Joey dated a girl and the apartment looked familiar, and he couldn't figure out why, until he remembered he had slept with the girl's sister before.

r u sure it wasn't with the roomie? I think it was the roommate and he got all mad because she didn't remember him. he kept asking her till the girl came in... and op, that sucks. His brother may be just like your ex who dumped you after sex. he probably just wanted to use you for sex... or you were THAT bad... But still, it would be very awkward meeting the family. The date would have a complex or something by getting his brother's seconds. No sibling likes sloppy seconds. Oh well, good luck. Not worth it unless it's really love & he won't dump you right after sex. How about you hold off the sex till you're sure he's legit if you date him? Then we'll see.

I think the O.P. meant that the brother dumped her after she slept with the brother, not the blind date, and that the brother was just using her for sex. that's what I got out of it, I'll admit the wording at the end is weird though...

YDI for drinking coffee. YDI for fornicating with his brother. YDI for fornicating, period. YDI for thinking that having been with his brother means you two can't see each other. YDI for gouging your eyes out before you went on your date.
