Dating a ex boyfriends friend
If it’s a great match, it’s a great match.” Still, it’s best to proceed with caution.
Martenson advises “letting things dissipate a bit” before making your move.
Don't overcompensate with fake happiness: You don't have to pretend to like what's happening, so don't overdo it with sappy sweet congrats and good wishes ... If you get caught in a confrontation, just smile, have a pre-planned friendly sentence or two to recite, keep it short and sweet, and move on.
The world is divided into two groups of people: those who think it's OK to date a friend's ex and those who believe it's completely off-limits.
When you and your friend are both in the "OK" camp, it can work if they date your ex, or you theirs.
What they are doing is really uncool and unacceptable.
Your ex and "your friend" are the ones who should feel stupid, NOT YOU! Their relationship is working because of the "scandalous and forbidden" element. When that wears off, and everyone in the community moves on to the next piece of gossip, and your ex and your friend really get to know each other, the appeal will fade. He or she could be doing this to you to act out his or her passive aggressive anger.
