Friend dating ex girlfriend
"Once loved" are the operative words here Too often, women become territorial, trying to mark our men as if past loves are actually possessions that we own for life.
If you have moved on from this person, you really should not take issue with who they are with now.
" Oddly enough, after viewing some of the discussion on the comment thread, I realized that my judgment might have been a little harsh.
I'm not trying to generalize, but most of my female friends talk about past boyfriends, dissecting why their relationships didn't work.
But there are two ex-boyfriends who hold a special place in my heart because even though I know it could never work between us, I recognize the impact we each had in each other's lives.
I would be happy if they found new happiness, but it would be too odd if it were with a close friend of mine.
However, the one thing that seems to be the unwritten rule among us is that we would never even consider dating our friends' exes. But now I realize this rule really needs more thought, because I believe there are two factors to consider before answering my girlfriend's Facebook question.The last comment on my friend's Facebook page said it best: "We don't owe or own anyone when it comes to happiness.If the relationship is really over and it ended respectfully, then people should feel free to move on with whomever they please." Point taken.There is no clear-cut rule when it comes to love and friendship.I asked one of my male friends about this, and he said that if all parties involved respect one another, a simple conversation needs to occur.
