Friend rules dating ex
Often it’s hard to tell the two apart, especially if you’ve not been in a relationship or hooked up with anyone in a while.
If you can distinguish between the two and it’s nothing more than an urge for a wild boot-knocking, then stop right there because it’s definitely not worth it.
Where relationships are concerned, going out with one of your mates’ ex partners is, whichever way you look at it, wrong.
Having both parties treat your wounded buddy with sensitivity can go a long way, and—who knows? Keep your relationship private Your friend may still be wallowing in the purgatory that is wondering what he did wrong to lose the woman you’re currently hitting it off with. Rather than ruining a potentially great relationship before it even begins just for his sake, be honest with him about the situation—you like her, and she likes you—hear him out and move forward keeping private things private.
The former’s better than sneaking around, and the latter is better than rubbing it in his face. After a few months of dating, you and the lady in question broke it off. Now, move on like you would at the end of any relationship—with maturity.
Such a situation, of course, can be tricky, and must be handled with care.
As with most situations, the decision that’s right for you will depend on your personal relationships, morals, values and beliefs.
