Often after a length of time, a girl whom you may have an interest in will display that you are her friend.
If Dumped - No man shall spend more than 1 month cryin or being sad over a woman.
After that one month period he is required to move on and find a better chick.
In any situation where a man's chance of success with a chick is diminished by another man's presence, the secondary male or 'third wheel' must leave at the earliest opportune moment.
A man shall not date, hang out with, or friend request a fellow friend's ex.
Needless to say, the 6.25% of nice guys that do win often keep the girl.
