I would rather not date that person that my friend has dated earlier on any kind of circumstances. Cause dating my friend's ex might create some kind of problem between me and my friend. So, I would avoid going out with my friends' ex totally. Beside that even when we break up with someone under good or bad circumstances there's still some kind of emotional string attach to that person and if I happen to date my friend's ex then my friend might feel little bad about it which I totally don't want to happen.

It depends on if I liked him or not. There is such a big issue over this sort of thing, but if you like someone your friend was seeing, but they are not seeing each other anymore then I dont see the problem. Obviously I would take into consideration the reason for them splitting, and also whether they were on good terms or not, because if they were on bad terms then it could be a bit akward trying to see both of them in the same place. I guess I would also have to tell my friend first before I actually dated him because it could be a bit hurtful for her to find out later on.

It is more common for a man to date a female that his friend dated then it is for a woman to date a guy her friend dated. I think it is because men will brag about the girl and how far they got with her and how good she was and then pass that information along to his buddies so he doesn't really care about her or who she dates after he gets his. Women will tell their friends about what a jerk their guy is, all the evil nasty things they do, every bad habit they have, and why no one with half a brain should date him now that she was smart enough to leave his butt. But if you really want to date someone who dated your friend just ask your friend if they would be upset with you. If you two are really friends they will appreciate that you came and asked them.

It differs, there are a lot of circumstances one would have to take into consideration. Firstly how close are you to this friend. Is seeing this guy gone to effect the friendship that you already have with this friend. Also how did the relationship end and how long had they dated. this is just not a simple yes or no answer. It all depends on so many factors. Also one should let their friend know how they feel about this guy to see how she is gone to react.

I dont believe I have to. There might be issues of disrespectfulness.

it would really depend upon the situation. As a rule, no, but I have dated my friend's ex husband for 8 months, but they had been divorced for 5 years and had no contact with each other. I even ask my friend if she had a problem with it because if she did I wouldn't date him but she said she was fine with it.
