While I'm definitely enjoying the re-watching, I'm also realizing that the friends of Friends were just terrible at dating. Now I know it's a sitcom, and some of the best comedy involves people failing miserably at all aspects of life (especially the romantic), but Friends gets pretty ridiculous about it. As Chandler would say, "Could there be anything we're worse at than dating?"
That being said, their spectacular failures make for great lessons of what not to do when you're trying to date someone. Here are some of the best/worst:
You will be found out and punished accordingly. And it will hurt.
I mean yes, in this case those consequences were two people falling madly in love and getting married and everyone was happy for them, but normally, this rash decision ends friendships.
There are several schools of thought on this one, but most feel that Ross was totally in the wrong sleeping with that copy girl, because technically, he wasn't broken up with Rachel. They were just taking some time. "On a break" doesn't mean broken up, especially when said infidelity happens mere hours later.
Another brilliant Ross assumption. Seriously, Ross, way to make sure you and everyone around you is single and miserable.
Pretty self-explanatory. Ross is now batting zero for three.
I mean, come on ladies. I know the whole doctor/patient thing is kind of hot, but you could do so much better. At least someone who has voluntary reflexes for Pete's sake.

Just put all the third nipples on the table on the first date if you want to avoid this awkwardness.
I'm starting to understand why Ross was married three times.
Rachel! Use your head!
Oh. My. God. No.
