Teachers, please see this sentence below:

A: I can't believe I slept with him.

B: If it wasn't him, it would be someone else eventually.

From my understanding of some grammar books, I believe the second sentence should be like this:

If if it hadn't been him, it would have been someone else eventually, because it is an unreal past situation ("it was him" is a real situation.) Please anyone help. Thanks in advance.

You are right. Nevertheless, in casual speech this kind of substitution is not unusual.

Thanks so much, Jim! m(_ _)m
The sentence: ''If it hadn't been him, it would have been someone else eventually'' is definitely correct (according to the grammar rules concerning conditional sentences).
