Mad friend dating ex

When my son was young I explained the emotional maturing aspect to him when he was struggling in HS; he said it helped him get past the frustration.

Unless you were a musical theater major (like I was) and thus have no frame of reference for normal interpersonal boundaries outside of your social circle, you likely have some level of hesitation about hooking up with a friend’s ex.

The answer to your question is that YES you may date the ex but do so with sensitivity and after an appropriate amount of time has passed.

In life, we meet and start to fall for people who we are familiar with and that includes the ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends of friends It is a shame that things aren't simpler but in life all things related to relationships and feelings are complicated.

It seems to me that she doesn't want to make herself any more vulnerable to someone who has displayed little concern about her feelings. When she feels stronger you can suggest that she either talk to her friend about her feelings or write her a letter.

1 month ago they went to dinner together, but now he has asked one of her best friends to their school’s Homecoming Dance.

At some point you may want to ask her what she learned from this situation. Writing that letter might help her process her thoughts, she doesn't need to mail it to her friend, sometime the act of writing can help her see things more clearly.
