Today, I was talking to my girlfriend about how I'm jealous of her best guy friend always hanging around her. She responded by saying, "Wait, I thought you knew I was dating him too?" FML
I agree, your life sucks 69 057
You deserved it 6 615

ttREZZ tells us more.

Well this was my clear things up, we had been dating three years, what we agreed would be exclusive. She met her best guy friend about two years into our relationship and started "dating him too" about four months ago.

I wonder if the other guy thinks that you're the "best guy friend" too

ya for real! isnt there a religion or belief where they date two or more people at a time? maybe she believes that way .. or she could be just a bitch. I cant believe u haven't had the " being exclusive" talk w her. thats usually how u find out the relationship is official. im sorry op...but theyre better people that will commit to only u. have hope.

Threre's a few cultures/religions/societies where polygamy (more than one partner/wife/husband) is practiced. But even if the girlfriend (ex now I hope) does hold the belief that polygamy is a-ok that's no excuse for not talking with her boyfriends about the nature of their relationship. I might even go so far as to say that if she did hold those beliefs she should have known better than to assume others held her beliefs too. What's more likely is that she's just a bitch.

Why do people make long winded responses on this site?

ya I wasnt saying if she did have that belief that it justifies the entire situation... im just saying maybe thats how she justified it in her own mind for the thing she did. but ya I do think shes just a plain bitch.

I'm sure the girlfriend's own jaw has dropped for multiple reasons, if you catch my drift.

#9, I was going to refute most of the points in your comment, but the entire reply is giving me a terminal illness in my eyeballs. Do you even know what an apostrophe is?

When it's a relationship outside of marriage, the term is "polyamorous".

Damn. You either just googled that or people with weird hair can be smart to.

its the ******* internet. . not a college paper. . . .. . ...... . . . . .. .. ... ...... . .. . . . .. . . . ....

So because it's the Internet, you expect to act like an illiterate and not get called out on it? I don't want to be a grammar nazi, but there's only so much stupidity that can be tolerated silently!

#52 So it is, thanks for correcting me :). Learn something new everyday.

I REALLY don't think this FML thing was meant to be a ******* vocabulary lesson!!! 'Nuf said?

Actually, originally it was. We just branched off into humour and stress-relieving anecdotes, because people kept getting uptight and moody at the thought of learning some basic English.

98, look at most of these comments. Are they written properly? Yes. Illiterate comments will be corrected. Don't be so butt-hurt.

28, polygamy is a man married to more then one woman. I think it would be a different name for a woman married to more then one man.

Oops, 52 said the word I was thinking of, sorry.

47, from the looks of it, she doesn't even know basic English, let alone apostrophes.

#62, your point is....? Just because it's the Internet doesn't mean you can tlk lyk thiz @łł the tym! Do yuh ræaliže høw støøpid yu lòôk tlking lyk tHiS?? Damn that was hard to do lol it seems like im the only one that made it to college and graduated.

Beats me too. It's like reading a novel when all I want are some giggles and reassurance that life ain't that bad after all

I pride myself on having the look of an outsider, while breaking social stereotypes as well. I may look like a freak, but if you can get past my spiky hair I'm a bit of an intelligent mind. Thanks.

Sure she is ur "girlfriend"?

Yeah, sure OP, we know she's not your girlfriend! Trying to impress everyone here on FML.

OP, repeat after me: "It's OKAY to have a sister." Simply having one doesn't make you uncool. It's the embarassing things about you she tells everyone that make you uncool.

73 this has nothing to do with the post.

I wonder if the other guy thinks that you're the "best guy friend" too

Shes playing around w/ both of them. What a terrible girl she is.

Don't pull out the torches and pitchforks on me for saying this, but i sort of get the feeling that OP isn't a guy... 0_0 I have enough friends belonging to some form of sexual minority to have heard horror-stories about eerily similar situations with partners who "though you knew about my other boy/girlfriend".

#60 - I already had my torch and pitchfork out. You just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. :P

Which one did she tell "he's gay anyway!" ?

Very true. I shouldn't have automatically assumed OP was male.

Introduce her to your new girlfriend. And then break up with her

But what if OP's girlfriend didn't know she was his girlfriend? Some people go on a few dates and then assume they're in a relationship... It's ok to date more than one person while you're single.

6 - that wouldn't really help anything, especially if she's saying that she's dating the other guy too

Maybe it's time for you to go looking for a new best friend too!

It's not OP's best friend dating his girl friend, it's his girl friends best friend.

#16: I think that #7 understood that point. Since his girlfriend has a "best friend", they were suggesting for him to get a "best friend" as well.

"Wait, I though you knew you're my ex?"

Shame she didn't take the time to make sure you understood that she's probably polyamorous.

You might want to look up "polyandry" and see if you can deal with it. All I can advise is: Never cross the streams! I'm pulling for you! I hope you get "pussy" when you guys DP her ;)

perdix 29

I guess I must be pissing off the Butthole Surfers.

I have to admire your will, Perdix. No matter how much you get downvoted, you always come back to the next FML. You are a true FML member. *Salutes*

30- you must be really ne- *checks* yeah you're new, never mind.

graceinsheepwear 33

You never know just how you look through other people's eyes, perdix.

Why on earth would she think you were okay with this? Especially if she never actually discussed it with you.

Quick OP, punch her in the throat and run!
