One-Sided Braid... DIY post from a few weeks ago

Quick update.  I did a DIY post with a One-Sided Braid a few weeks ago.  I wanted to post a pic where I did it on my daughter Noelle's hair yesterday.  It turned out perfect and was super easy.

The Gospel According to Girls...Thou Shalt Not Date Your Friend's Ex!

Thou shalt not date your friend’s Ex

Thou shalt NOT date a friend’s ex unless she has clearly thrown him back into the dating pool, you have seen him swimming around there for a while and if you check with her first to make sure she didn’t just accidentally misplace him.

And if she has moved out of the country it wouldn't hurt.

In all honesty it also depends on the depth of your friendship and the depth of the relationship with your ex.  If you and your ex just didn’t work out because you were just not right for each other, what’s the harm?  Even still, I can't see being intimate with someone that your friend was intimate with. 

If it was a marriage, serious relationship or there was trauma involved a close friend would know every dastardly deed, heartbreak and bad situation and trust me, she won't want to go there. 

Most women place extraordinary value on their friendships and the last thing she would ever do is something to hurt you.  My friends would be more likely to put a hit out on a guy that had hurt me than to ever consider dating him. 

If you have a good group of girlfriends (as I do) then this will never even come up.

And if there are exceptions to this rule, you would have to question your friendship.  If she is prepared to risk losing you as a friend to pursue this relationship then I would say you are better off without her.  So either way you win.
