Dating two friends
Rachel and Tag enjoy the sex and Tag is five years younger than Rachel. On Rachel's thirtieth birthday, Tag tries to cheer Rachel up since she feels middle aged and he warns her friends what not to say to her.
Paul ends up falling in love with Rachel despite their age difference, and Rachel returns the feelings. Later, Paul ends up bringing Rachel on a date to his country house.
Unbeknownst to Paul, Ross and Elizabeth are there too, and while Ross is hiding under the bed, he hears Paul give himself a pep talk which implies he is nervous about pleasing Rachel.
Eventually, when Rachel sees the two arguing, she finally sees the similarities between them and walks away, disturbed.
She later breaks up with Russ, who consequently becomes depressed and one day while hanging out at the coffee shop is spotted by Ross' ex-girlfriend Julie, who is likewise depressed after Ross broke up with her.
Rachel bizarrely does not see the multiple similarities between Ross and Russ, and even more bizarrely, neither do either of them.
Rachel dates Russ as a rebound relationship after breaking up with Ross upon learning of a list of her pros and cons he had written up whilst trying to decide whether to date her or Julie, but the fact that she would date a man who resembles him so much - even if she hasn't noticed the aforementioned resemblances - seems to strongly imply that she is still attracted to him, and the other friends actually suggest this theory to her.
In season two, after Rachel finds out Ross is dating Julie, heartbroken and drunk, she has a one night stand with Paolo, but it doesn't amount to anything further than that.
Main Article: Ross and Rachel In "The One With Russ", Rachel dates a man named Russ, who to the bewilderment of her friends looks and acts eerily similar to Ross.
