This can be viewed two ways: 1.) Most relationships don’t end in marriage, so it’s really not worth going down that road to potentially ruin a good friendship.
2.) The relationship did not work out with your friend and their ex for a reason, so why not ask your friend for their blessing and see if you two are a better fit? I have seen a few guys get bent out of shape when one of their buddies decides to hang out with someone they used to date.
But an hour later, walking into the specified bar in the West Village, I immediately understood why people take the time to screen each other via text.
Tinder guy turned out to be two of my worst fears combined: a short actor.
And there certainly are times when people who go down this path find that it really wasn’t worth it.
But if you’re wondering how to go about dating your friend’s ex, and you think the pursuit might really have potential, don’t worry, you are not a terrible person.
You’re into it, he’s into it, there’s some serious chemistry, and you might have stumbled upon something really special. In discussing this topic with my female friends, it seems to me that men are especially experienced in dealing with this dilemma.
But eventually, I matched with a handsome enough 30-something who was OK with skipping the small talk.Sometime late last year, my ex and I worked up the nerve to become friends again.We had been broken up for two years and decided that we could definitely be friends.We would meet once or twice a month for coffee or pho, catch each other up on the latest in each others’ lives, and in general, have a nice, easy-going time. After coffee or dinner, we would go over to each others’ house and watch a movie.And then show each other silly videos on You Tube…and then play each other our new favorite songs.
