Best friend dating my ex

How if you find yourself interested in someone who has been with your friend, you back the heck up and reevaluate. And you know why I can say that? Because I broke that rule.

In 8th grade, my ex started “going out” with a friend mere days after we broke up. It wasn’t cool then, and it’s not cool now. So, I’m asking you dear readers: is Vanessa overreacting?

The last few months were rough because his grandmother passed away after being in the hospital for a few months. I tried to be there for him but he totally withdrew and would reject my advances and we started fighting a lot because of it. He told me he loves me, but felt like I was smothering him and he needed to find himself. He suggested we stay friends but I told him that would be too hard on me and he said I can contact him anytime.

Should I text him? Try to stay friends? Is there any hope of getting him back? I can relate to both your situation and his. I remember, years ago, when I was extremely unhappy with my job and a few other areas of my life. I was dating a woman who really was a great girlfriend, but I was totally not in the right place to be in a relationship.

I can tell you firsthand that when people try to probe why I am being distant, it feels very invasive to me and I withdraw even further. All I want is to quietly solve the problem by myself.

Is it ever a good idea to date a friend’s ex?

Evan, This may be an age-old question. My boyfriend is best friends with his ex-girlfriend. They dated for two and a half years, broke up 5 years ago, have many mutual friends. They met in graduate school and went through some hard times together, so I understand why they stay friends. However, they are way too close.

It doesn’t matter how long you dated your ex, who broke up with who, or if you’re still sometimes hooking up with him, it still feels like a slap in the face to find out your friend is dating him.I mean like Gretchen Weiners said, ex-boyfriends are just off-limits to friends, that’s just like, the rules of the reality is that it happens, and sometimes it happens to you.

Two years ago in college I met a girl, we quickly became very very close friends. So much so that we quickly developed a code way of talking that only her and I know. Later during the year I fell for her, hard!!! Till this day there’s not a minute that passes without me thinking about her or wanting to message her. She knows I would drop everything of mine just to make her happy, she once lost her phone and I couldn’t sleep going though town like a madman for two days looking for her phone, lol I was ready to search for it as long as I lived because it meant so much to her, I eventually found it though after only two days.

I told her how I feel about her, She didn’t say anything acted like nothing happened, our friendship continued, then late last year lol I taught myself how to compose music, how to record music just so I could record her a song telling her that I love her Again she didn’t say anything, and ignored me for a while then we were friends again. So I decided to move on and to console myself I tell myself everyday that I am not attractive enough to be with her.

It’s bad I know but at least it’s an answer other than silence. We even talked about dating. But we both decided that we didn’t want to lose each other as friends. It happened anyways when he got this crazy girlfriend that got jealous over me because me and him had a past so she made him stop talking to me. We got back in touch last year around my birthday.

Reply Hi, I came across your post on the healmybrokenheart. It sounds like a kinda just like mine. Like when you said you see them talking to a co-worker in the back corner and her body language is the same as it was when you were with her. But her and I were just friends too before we started dating. We were on a breakup but we still continued to do our lunch dates and we started holding hands again and I went in for a kiss one day and got denied.

Since then I tried to get a lunch date with her and she said yes but next day she called off.

My best friend is now dating my ex-boyfriend. Needless to say, it’s weird. So in your opinion, what are the rules about dating exes? Does Gretchen Weiners have a point about the rules of feminism?

I tried really hard to ensure that I would never even have to learn your name, but social media and its passively cruel games in hopes of connecting people together had another plan. I didn’t recognize your face, or your name, but we had a few friends in common, and I definitely recognized the man standing next to you in your profile picture. And my world stopped turning. My world stopped turning because I was overcome with fear for you. You look so innocent. Your smile looks genuine, kind.

I recognize your smile and that picture because it was mine a few years ago, standing next to the man you are now, probably thinking the same happy thoughts. He is not the charming, happy, loving, affectionate person who you believe that you have found. He is a broken bird who which you instinctively want to save, but my darling girl, you simply cannot.

He will eventually stop smiling. He will eventually stop the affection.
