Is it even acceptable to go after a girl with a boyfriend?
We’re not here to dole out philosophical advice, but we do want to touch on the larger question of whether it’s acceptable to pursue a girl who is already dating someone. Once again, your motivations will help you examine the ethical aspect of chasing a girl with a boyfriend.
If you don’t — if there isn’t anything particularly outstanding about this person — then you already have a reason to respect her circumstances and move on.
A guy she’s kind of been dating for a couple months isn’t quite the same as a guy she’s been living with for the last five years.
You just don’t know how things will shake out after the breakup, no matter what the situation is when you meet.
But let’s say everything goes exactly according to plan.
We must understand our motivations whenever we pursue a woman, especially when there’s someone else in the picture.
That should be one of your guiding questions: whether you’re chasing someone to make yourself feel good, or because you must be with this person.
But getting involved in a toxic relationship is also a bit like a quicksand pit.
