Is it because you genuinely love them and think the break up was a mistake?
I am a 43-year-old woman who has never been married (although I would like to be). In the great majority of these relationships, it was the man who decided to break things off with me.
That's certainly the case when you find yourself attracted to your ex's friend!We kept in touch via telephone but a month or so later she broke off the relationship. Sarah made it clear that there would be no reconciliation and that it would be best that if we made a clean break--no ongoing contact, etc. I heard through a friend-of-a-friend that she was dating someone at nearby Big State University.I ran into her once briefly at the campus bookstore. She lives in Dallas and has at least one child, and it appears that shes been a stay at home mom for the past few years after having a career of her own.She loves you and wants you to be happy, but if you ultimately want the same, you won't choose dating her recent ex to be your newest source of happiness.Honestly, it should never have been considered anyway, so do yourself a favor and don't put your friendship at risk.5. Not only are you pissing your best friend off, but your new bf's family has always viewed you as his girlfriend's best friend. Considering they always associated the two of you together, there's a real good chance you're gonna get called your bestie's name. If for some reason your best friend chooses not to defriend you, your social outings are gonna be awkward af from now on.
