Luckily, they didn't hook up, but I felt like my ex would have if given the opportunity. How long has it been since you? That might also give you some time to decide which is more important to you, the friend or this guy. However, if you chose your friend, I also respect that and think that if you were able to put him aside it was probably not true love. Think about your past relationship as objectively as possible. He's been on more dates than you can shake a lengthy bar tab at, and he's here to help the average guy step his dating game up a notch — or several. I don't mean that you can never be happy again after breaking up with someone. Most importantly, what are your intentions? You might be the rebound girl, just there to pick up the broken pieces for a while.Next

Would you ever date an ex's friend? So after a month I said sorry. You also have the opportunity to use this experience as a chance for some introspection. Five months later, he dated my another best friend on my squad. He has been my best friend for about 5 years now. Was he always the jealous type? She is entitled to be , hurt, and sad.

So ensuring he is told first and in person may avoid this. When confronted by real and conflicting feelings, you chose the potential of a serious romantic relationship over your friendship.

All these factors will help you decide if you should act on your feelings. Even if it was a mutual breakup. I know that what I did to my friend is wrong, there is no justification.

Basically, if you have an inkling he would care, you may want to make sure he hears from you or his friend instead of through the grapevine. It all comes down to how your friend feels about it. If you date him, you could lose her friendship forever. Fast forward 5 months and the feelingsurrounding are still there with both of us. If you decide to pursue your feelings, it might be wise to let your ex know. They were about to celebrate their first anniversary when he started falling out of love. Not to mention she had a very complicated and somewhat split personality.Next
For a moment, things got so bad that my ex and I stopped talking for a bit, but we're fine now, thankfully. But my sitiuation is a bit diffrent. While I wouldn't mind seeing my ex go hook up and be happy with a stranger, there is an undeniable sting when it's with someone you know. I just feel like the catalyst that ruined everything.
