Today, I was stuck home with a cold when my boyfriend's best friend sent me a text saying, "You doing alright?" I replied, thinking he was talking about my health. He replied, "I'm surprised you're taking the breakup so well." What breakup? Mine. He was ten minutes too soon. FML

@22 No, that's a very petty reason to go out with someone and it's also unfair to the ex-bf's best friend if he wants more than just in her pants.

I think it was just one of those scenarios where he talked it over with his friends before doing it, to make sure he wasn't being irrational or making a dumb decision. He probably decided to break up with her, but hadn't gotten around to it by the time the friend thought he had. Or he's a douche. But I like the think the best of people.

#32 Indeed, there are more of them then you'd like to think. Definitely sounds like he's trying to snatch op up, unless they had a close friendly relation prior to this now ex-boyfriend.


Is that a serious question?? Yes. Human beings are by far the most devious creatures on our planet. The terms "betrayal" and "cheating" are human inventions. Not to say other animals aren't capable of deception, but compared to humans? Humans suck.

#35 Someone's in a foul mood today... Perhaps #32 is a bit naive, but I still prefer someone who sees the good in people and might get disillusioned now and then, to someone who's too cynical to consider anything other than "humans suck".
Anyway, never mind the "is the friend a real friend"-disussion, FYL for getting broken up with by text by someone else than your boyfiend!

not necessarily true, other animals are capable of deception, like elephants where one pretends to be injured while the others sneak past the guard who left the gate open, however humans do take the cake as far as lying and deception go

not everybody's ex- significant other's best friend is a hungry wolf/fiend... my ex boyfriend's best friend turned out to be there for me and out of that support grew our relationship. Now we've been together for over 3.5 years. Sometimes the best friend cares so much because they actually do "care" about the person and not just about getting in their pants.

Your ex-boyfriend's best friend is a time traveler and he just blew his cover. Tell him I will be repossessing his DeLorean and flux capacitor. Effective immediately.

Preemptive comforting... It's a new thing all the cool kids do it.

Friend: "I'm so sorry about what happened!" OP: "What do you mean?" Friend: "Wait ten minutes and you'll know."

My ex and I were together for a long time, so our friends eventually became mutual friends. They checked on me when the relationship ended, but that doesn't mean that they all wanted to be with me. Sometimes people are just nice. Is it so hard to believe that good people actually exist?

I think this 'friend' really wanted to be the first to make a move on you, so he used his inside information to beat your other many admirers
