The Cowboy Code: Chapter Five

A friend of mine familiar with the code asked if it addressed the following question:
"What's the rule for dating siblings?"

You guys answer however you will. But I say don't date siblings at the same time. That's a Springer episode that's been rerun waaaaaaay too many times.

Second and more seriously, if you dated one woman but realized later you had more in common with her sister, I don't think there's any salvaging it, especially not if the two of them are close.

Think about it. You can't tell her "You're nice, but your sister's nicer." You can't say "You're attractive, but your sister's hot." You can't say "You don't get my jokes. But your sister laughs at everything I say."

You're pretty much up the creek without a paddle or a boat.

I say chalk it up to cruel fate and move on - don't linger. If you try for the other sister they will both destroy you. They'll come down on you with the wrath of God...unless, of course, the other sister's triflin', in which case she may hook up with you just to spite sister number one.

And ladies if you're dating a guy and you decide you're feeling his brother more than him, don't tell him. If you do he and his brother will scheme on you and they'll try to share the wealth.

The Cowboy Code has spoken. What say you?


  • Wow, James, I may be from the South, but not even The Sarcasticynic would consider dating his own sibling.

  • I agree with the sarcasticdude.
    James you nasty.

    Anywho. I agree with you. Dating one sibling, then feeling the other more, will only lead to karmic chaos. Especially if that sibling is of the same you.

  • Never ever ever ask my sister out after we have gone out on a date. Even if I the date went horribly and only lasted for 13 minutes.

    The sisters that agree to this type of nonsense end up on Jerry Springer. Who needs that. Just don't do it
