Consider…As we mature, friendships become more selective.

I believe if two people are meant to end up together, they will ultimately find their way to or back to each other.

However, as a relationship researcher, I recognize and sympathize that fate is not always in our favor.

Make sure you both agree what this relationship is, what it could be become and what you both want.

If you are in agreement, it’s time to break the news to the friend (your overlapping social network will also be grateful once this step is complete).

To do this, you should first disclose your new relationship to your ex-partner and set boundaries.

You should then focus on fostering a positive relationship with the best friend so all your hard work is worth it.
