The characters from Friends all dated multiple people. Joey dated a whole myriad of girls, Chandler had Janice and a few other quick dates, Ross had three ex wives, Rachel left a man at the altar, Phoebe dated a gay ice dancer, and Monica had some epic loves and a few other boyfriends too. Monica's most famous boyfriends were Richard and Chandler.
