For a moment, things got so bad that my ex and I stopped talking for a bit, but we're fine now, thankfully. While I wouldn't mind seeing my ex go hook up and be happy with a stranger, there is an undeniable sting when it's with someone you know. Maybe if we didn't have the capacity to feel jealousy and insecurity, we could all just have a big happy orgy.
We met up recently, and it turned out, like with most things, to be a matter of miscommunication. And I don't think you should ever apologize or justify that sting.
after a breakup, your friend is supposed to be there to support you, not pick your ex up on the rebound because he's finally single.
If a friend wants to date the ex, it is always going to be a difficult situation. It hurt so bad to watch someone who I thought was my best friend hanging all over my first love (my ex).
She is also pursuing her own happiness and you can't stop her from doing just that. Also, I would be mad because she should have asked you if you're okay with it first. It also depends on how close a friend she was to you! Would you be able to live with yourself, knowing that your best friend could be the happiest boy/girl ever?
It depends on how serious your relationship was with him. my best friend really likes my ex, even though she knows he treated me horribly and broke my heart, she even kissed him last week.
@ Pink Pggy- Maybe he just TOLD you he thought she was ugly and fat as to suppress your suspicions. I left an abusive relationship of four years and my childhood friends ditched me and still hang out with the fat fucking bastard. Apparently my standards are too high when I say "dont date my ex's, and don't stop being my friend for no reason". It is no longer any of your business whom he decides to date. What if your ex is the one and only for your best friend?
And frankly, you can't expect your best friend chuck him just for you. Would you be the one to keep your friend from being with the love of his/her life?Then when I got mad she told me and I quote " well at least the one who loves him the most won this time" and this is the second time now that she's gotten with my exs hours of even minutes after I told her we broke up she has really hurt me and so has he should I man up and forgive them Your Ex is fair game, you do not own that person nor do you own your their emotions.This should not be him or me deal and you have no right to say who can date who.Basically, I encouraged my gay BFF to hang with an ex of mine because why not? The second I set it up though, I regretted it, because I started thinking about what would happen if they hit it off and crushed on each other. We don't betray the ones we love the most, or at least we try not to!Even though I no longer had feelings for my ex, that didn't mean I would want him shacking up with my best friend! Luckily, they didn't hook up, but I felt like my ex would have if given the opportunity. I understand that no one is perfect and that shit does, in fact, sometimes happen, but your best friend and your ex hooking up is a BIG dump to take.Since your Ex was once your friend you can think of it as your friends are dating each other not your friend and an Ex. It's almost like you want to sabotage the chance of others finding potential happiness and love because you're miserable seeing what you once had. It's ok to be mad, especially if you still have feelings for the guy.
