Dating a friend of your ex

If she's a close friend who is not a Shady Mc Shadester, chances are you're way over your ex and the only reason she thought it was okay was because she knows you're totally over him.

Still, it's like, when you donate your high school Guess bomber jacket you definitely will never wear again to charity, you don't expect anyone you know to actually buy it and wear it in front of you.

Plus, the fact that your friend likes your ex means that she thinks you have good taste.All that being said, you don't have to be cool with it.“Now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other,” she adds.“And just because you have the same taste in men, we don’t hold that against each other.” That’s a pretty progressive point of view — and not necessarily one exclusive to celebs who move in A-list social circles.Instead of acting cool with it when you're not, you can make a choice to call it out as being fucked up.

You're not obligated to hide your feelings, because they didn't.Same concept—even if your friend didn't mean to fall for your ex, you can't help but wish he just moved to Europe after you guys broke up instead.Dating your friend's ex might be up there with Watergate on a scandalous level, but the reality is you and your friends are probably both attractive, chill betches and it's not unlikely a bro would fall for both of you.Before risking a friendship, figure out if the relationship is worth the drama that can potentially unfold.If it’s just a fling, maybe sweep it under the rug and act like it never happened.If you're annoyed by the fact that she's now parking your second-hand car in her garage, literally everybody you know will understand.
