Dating a Friend's Ex
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
What is your opinion on dating a friend's ex? One of my good friends dated this guy for about a year and then broke up. Two years have now passed and she's been with someone else for a while. I really like her ex and he feels the same except I wouldn't want to hurt her by dating her ex. I think the two of us would make a really good couple but I don't know how she would feel. Any advice?
It's a reasonable and quite nice thing of you to worry about, but I really do think enough time has passed in here. It is VERY very common for people to date each other's exs. You guys all get along for a reason - because you have similar tastes and similar intersts. You already know each other and understand each other because of the time you spent together. So it's very natural for you guys to be interested in each other.
If you're really concerned, I would ask your friend about it. I bet she will be very impressed that you thought to ask her, and will say it's fine.
