The question is whether you can act on that sweet sound of "click." First and foremost, let's make sure you have good intentions. You're the smartest, funniest and best dressed at the office—everyone is mad crushing on you. Gee whiz, that hottie friend of your ex seems to notice . It's a mess to be sure, but that's different than being a horrible person We don’t own people; we just share our time with them . A great relationship, and great chemistry between two people, can be rare to come by.
Said ex probably likes people who share similar qualities (mountain biking! ) and you guys have probably all pal-ed around together for months, maybe even years; it makes that you might be attracted to ex's friend. For all you know, your ex just wasn't that into it and might be stoked to see you move on to someone who's better suited for you. Accusations and tears may flow as freely as the alcohol that you're likely consuming. Don't self loathe, wallow or spiral into misery, that's not gonna make anyone's pain go away and it sure as hell isn't going to pave a smooth foundation for your new love-fest. If I break up with someone — and I have broken up and been broken up with a lot — I have no problem with any of my friends dating my ex, falling in love with her and even marrying her.
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.
But hey, you wanted her boyfriend so maybe you'll want her name, too. The chances of successful group dates are highly unlikely and if you want to ever bring your bf to those concerts you always attend....well, think again.
And a month-long relationship may not even count as a real "ex", but going after the remains of a four year relationship puts you on the bottom of my list and I don't even know you. Boredom/horny Maybe you're in the middle of a dry spell. Your ex is familiar and it won't increase your number at all #recycle. Satisfaction You know you broke up for some reason, but the sex is still damn good.
