Probably yes..
It really depends on the circumstances that let to it.

I would dig into details of why that happened, but anyway you don't lose much.

As long as it's not a really messed up situation of course I would. People make mistakes, why should they be punished or ostracized? I know several people who have had broken engagements and they all say the same thing, "B"H people go out with me. If they didn't how would I ever get married?"

It completely depends on the circumstances, but I would say yes much more than no.

ditto to something different.
broken engagements are sooo much more common now (unfortunately). i actually just went out with a guy who has a broken engagement.

I guess it would depend on who broke it and how it was broken.

I went out with a fabulous guy who was engaged before. He was a huge mentch who happened to have suffered thru a broken engagement. Unless the boy or his family have some issue that caused the engagement to be broken, or if they're just not nice people, what's the big deal?

CP- is he still single?? ;)

A broken engagement is not enough of a reason to say no - although I will think twice (as I do before any person I'd go out with) and over here, I would try find out why it happened...
There are plenty of people (unfortunately) who have had broken engagements and they are still wonderful people and deserve a fair shot.
After finding out the reason why it happened, if it is an okay reason given (and I may or may not find out the REAL reason), I would go out.
Going out doesn't mean you have to marry them! It's a date - that's only step one.

SD--
I think so. He was really great. But he was one of those who said no to me after a few dates :-) Oh, well

:-D

CP-
im glad you still think he's great even after he said no to you... some girls aren't like that

corner point said...

Argh. Some girls can be so petty.
He's a nice guy, period.

Why should the fact that he said no make him the big bad wolf? He's not for me. That's all :-)

Something Different said...

CP- so who is his PR rep?

tembow said...

good attitude

tembow said...

yeah, SD, i wanna go out with this guy lol

Something Different said...

If he is good enough to turn down CP he must be really really really good, huh? ;-)

tembow said...

you bet!

Something Different said...

or he could be seriously stuck up. Kinda like TBB.....

tembow said...

but TBB wouldn't get stuck-up because he's TBB (come on, we discussed this already :)

Something Different said...

But if he *thinks* he is TBB but really he has an inflated ego.... sigh. You are right. We exhausted this topic already.

tembow said...

yeah we don't want the guy who *thinks* he is TBB, we want *the real* TBB

at least do! so i guess we'll have to fight for him!! lol

It's a good thing I saw this before, so I had time to think about it and form an opinion. Cause I was asked this question recently, so I decided to be open about it, and ask for information.

How do you dream?

Which do you prefer?

What would you rather?

What's your favorite method of keeping in touch with friends?

Are you going to watch the Super Bowl today- and why?
