Dating friends of ex boyfriends
It’s always wrong to date your best friend’s ex, right? If there aren’t any hard feelings, she’s probably not going to mind.
Despite what girl code might say, it’s not always so black and white. Just make sure she’s not still interested in him first.
"It's only smart to date your friend's ex-boyfriend if you want to dump your friend. My patients are left feeling betrayed by both their friend and ex-boyfriend and filled with hurt and anger," said Fran Walfish, psychotherapist. On the other hand, there are some cases that I know of where it worked out.
These cases occurred during middle age when all parties had the chronological and emotional life-experience and maturity to better deal with the powerful feelings that accompany this type of emotional shake-up," Walfish said.
I don’t say this to judge or to blame, but I think it is important to be clear about what has been happening.
She will very likely be devastated and feel betrayed by her best friend and by the man she thought she had a lasting future with.
Like most high school relationships, their romance came to an end once college came around.
