Men and women, did you ever wonder if your BF/GF's opposite sex friends would sleep or wish to sleep with your significant other.  An interesting study by Scmitt and Buss (2001) called "Human mate poaching" lends evidence that it is "relatively common" for those "friends" to try or think about doing it with your BF/GF.    Hmmm.  Interesting.

Quoting TIFFisSICK:

UGH! This happens to me all the time. My "friends" or at least "girls who got close to me because they were interested in my boyfriend", always sleep with my boyfriends.
Then I have to dump both.

I always ask why, and they tell me, "because you're too nice."
Isn't that just the nicest way to slap someone in the face?
Grr.

Count yourself lucky. People like you don't realise......well anyting actually.

Happens to me. Several ex's would have friends that would try hitting on me. Don't know why, but its common.

those are not friends they are only acquaintances, pretending to be a friend.  Good reason to just dump them.  Karma will get them in the end.

Tiff, never worry about being too nice as that's really just not possible to be too nice. 
Life has its own system of rewards and punishments and, as the old saying goes, "What goes around comes around."  When you're young you don't really believe in that because you never get a chance to see it but as you get older you see it happen time and time again.  Sometimes its almost instant and other times it takes years but it does.  So people who do those things to you will have their own price to pay at some other point in time.  Your challenge will be to remain kind and graceful when you do learn about their comeuppance.
Also, I've learned to be thankful for anything or anyone who reveals to me a side of someone that I couldn't see.  These people can save you a ton of heartache... in your case you had women take loosers off your hands. 
Just learn to adjust your perspective and see that their actions and behavior have nothing to do with you and your being too nice.  It's their behavior based on their own values.

Yeah... any guy friend who would hit on my gf would not last more than 10 seconds as a friend of mine. In fact, if he saw someone hitting on my gf and did nothing, he wouldn't last 10 seconds.

My friends have my back or they're not my friends.
