Best friend dating my ex online chat with sexes
For the record, I never had any sort of romantic feelings towards my friend's ex prior to this. But suddenly, I was seeing him in a whole new light.He was cute, he was charming, and (dammit) he was funny!Crazier still, she'll be standing up there with the both of us come November as one of my bridesmaids. I was in her wedding, too.) I realize my situation is unique and there are many other instances of ex-dating that should probably be avoided.But I think it was my candor and honesty that allowed me to metaphorically have my cake and eat it, too.Not only was she positive and willing to talk this whole thing out, but she wasn't throwing her drink in my face.By the end of the night, she had given me her blessing and seemed genuinely happy for me, although I sometimes wonder if she regrets being so agreeable so darn quickly.My friend's ex and I started to run into one another regularly at a weekly trivia night that one of the bars hosted.
Once I mustered up enough courage to broach the subject and just spit it out, I was shocked by her reaction.
Don't get me wrong, my friend would lend me a helping hand or provide a shoulder for me to cry on anytime I needed it, but she was notoriously high maintenance when it came to relationships (and a little nuts.)She'd snap at him over the silliest things and always toted a bag full of jealousy around with her.
Looking back, I think she was just unsure of herself and probably a little bit insecure. By winter, I'd snatched up a boyfriend of my own and my awareness of their unenviable situation morphed into anticipation.
It didn't take me long to realize that I was falling head over heels for him – and fast. After three or so years of fights, hostility, and a general feeling of unhappiness, he'd broken up with her.
I knew that there was still bad blood between them. To be fair, my budding relationship with my best friend's ex came about during an incredibly confusing time in my life. I wasn't going to allow myself to fall any further in love until I had the chance to talk it over with my friend.And while she still seemed to hold a bit of a grudge over the split, she was infinitely happier in her new relationship.
