Advice on dating friends ex
Fast forward and now they are no longer with your friend. Honestly, when it comes to dating a friends ex I think it really depends on the situation.They broke up for whatever reason and it turns out the attraction is mutual. There are different variables that in my opinion make it understandable or make it a very questionable.Most people in life fall into one of two categories: those who stay friends with exes, and those who do not.Business Insider asked Matthew Hussey, the "love life and dating strategist" behind the blog howtogettheguy.com, if staying close to a former flame can ever actually work.The only problem with that is that sometimes, we can’t help who we fall for…and sometimes, we end up falling for that guy who is totally off-limits because your friend had him first.We saw this topic in the message boards and we wanted to know: do you think it’s fair to say that all of your friends exes are off-limits?Once your friend is done with the dude and she’s over him, then what’s the harm in you liking him or being with him? Read what these girls had to say about the topic and then tell us what you think in the comments. My close friend had a boyfriend and they went out for a while before they ended things.
They belong to your friend and it would look real bad for you to make a move on that person.
" If the answer's no — regardless of how you would feel in that situation — then maintaining a friendship is probably not going to help anybody, according to Hussey.
Basically, it means that you don’t date your friends exes or crushes – unless you get their approval.
But in my opinion, getting your friend’s approval before you pursue a relationship is the right thing to do.
It shows your friend that you respect her enough to consider her feelings before you go ahead with this.
