People Confess What It's Really Like To Date A Friend's Ex

We all know dating your bestie's ex is a major violation of the friendship code.

Or, as your favorite mean girl, Gretchen Wieners, likes to put it,

Ex-boyfriends are just off-limits to friends. I mean that's just, like, the rules of feminism.

Yep, going for your BFF's ex can result in a variety of consequences.

I mean seriously, it starts out as innocently flirting with your friend's ex-boyfriend in math class, and before you know it, you're feeding your former BFF Kälteen Bars and being accused of pushing her in front of a bus.

OK, so maybe that stuff only happens in movies like "Mean Girls."

But in most cases, your BFF won't be too pleased about your new relationship and you'll inevitably have to choose between love and friendship.

Recently, Whisper, the app that lets you broadcast your biggest secrets to the world via anonymous messages, asked a bunch of people to spill the beans on what it's really like to date your friend's ex.

As you can probably imagine, there's usually a lot of jealousy, guilt and hurt feelings involved.

Take a look at the pictures below to see people get real about what goes down when you date your friend's ex-bae.

I still feel bad even though my friend said it was OK.

She's totally going to hate me when she finds out.

Sooner or later, we're going to need to have a talk.

Sometimes, you just have to do what makes you happy.

There's no shame in choosing love over friendship.

That's what you call a good friend.

I picked up the pieces my friend left behind.

It took a year, but we finally settled our differences.

I just can't help the fact I'm in love with my best friend's ex.

I'm taking one for the team.

Our happiness makes my friend jealous.

The vision of them together really f*cks with my head.

It's been a year, and he still doesn't know I broke bro code.

She won't keep her nose out of our relationship.

I guess it's better than saying, "We met because I swiped right."
