Dating my friend39s ex wife
And because they are familiar with all the dirt on him, they wouldn't touch him.However, if you and your ex didn't work out just because you just weren't right for each other and there was no real drama involved, what's the harm if your current girlfriend and someone you once loved end up together?
Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- "Would you be upset if a friend starting dating someone they knew you were once deeply in love with?Editor's note: Audrey Irvine is a senior assignment manager for CNN.Her experiences in the dating world inspire her "Relationship Rant" column.Sincere is why I say to you as my ex at the time said to me, the only thing you can do is tenia yourself.Dustin, an amiable guy, is in love with Alexis, a coworker." Oddly enough, after viewing some of the discussion on the comment thread, I realized that my judgment might have been a little harsh.
I'm not trying to generalize, but most of my female friends talk about past boyfriends, dissecting why their relationships didn't work.
From "he just doesn't get me" to "we're too different" to "why did we stay together THAT long," women tend to overanalyze past relationships.
However, the one thing that seems to be the unwritten rule among us is that we would never even consider dating our friends' exes. But now I realize this rule really needs more thought, because I believe there are two factors to consider before answering my girlfriend's Facebook question.
"Once loved" are the operative words here Too often, women become territorial, trying to mark our men as if past loves are actually possessions that we own for life.
If you have moved on from this person, you really should not take issue with who they are with now.
That would mean I might run into one of them occasionally and see him look at my friend the same way he once looked at me.
