    That depends on a lot. How long did they date? How long ago? Were they in love? Did they have sex? Is he/she ok with it? Generally it isn't a good idea. There are a lot of people out there. Focus on someone else.

    Supposedly as an adult, if you no longer wish to date someone, you should have no objection to anyone else dating them.  Why should it matter?

    Because regardless of what someone may say, once you date someone there is a certain form of attachment. When you break up, sure you aren't together anymore, but emotionally you may still be linked but it just didn't work out for whatever reason. Also if it didn't work out with you, depending on why, you probably don't want a friend/family member having to deal with what you just went through.

    My sons and I discussed that one time. They both agreed neither would go out with the other's ex because it would be like...hooking up with their sister hmm they didn't like that idea at all. Their own decision too. smile

    If you care about this person do not let the fact they dated someone in your family stop you.  Eventually they will have to accept that you two care about each other, or maybe your significant other does not have to go to family functions.  I know myself when I do date someone again I probably will not be going to many of his family events because I like to do things with my own family too.  I am sure it can work, just try to set some boundaries so everyone is comfortable.

    I think that's too messy.  I figure, people ought to just go outside the "family circle" and find their own dating partner.  smile  (Besides, who'd want a relative's "left-overs"?)

    If you and the said relative both really wanted the same thing, lets say a..beautiful coat. One of you could never afford it,Way out of reach. However one of you could.Should this one flaunt it in the others eyes? Should the one who "could" have it but also could choose something just as nice later,and while shopping alone, go ahead and get it infront of the other? or Would they wait out of respect of the others feelings and take the second option? ...Then there is a matter of being loyal to concider. Did this ex "wrong" or disrespect the relative in anyway ? I would feel very betrayed by someone who would tolerate the likes of one who treated me badly. Ones ego may prevent them from acting as if they care, but even so, I know it does my heart good when my relatives concider my feelings as if they truely do matter. No where else in the world could you ever expect such concideration..but from family it is an "expected" comfort. (or at least it should be) smile
