Check back every week for her take on dating and relationships.
Better yet, if she's in another relationship and is seriously in love, it's doubtful she'll care too much if you want to date her ex.
If this is the case, and your friend is still concerned, it's best to stay away from the ex. If you and your friend don't regularly talk face-to-face, your dating habits may not get in the way of this friendship.
Accept it, but also set boundaries if you feel uncomfortable being together with the both of them in the same room.
Having truly close friends are rare and harder to find as we get older, so if this relationship is what makes your friend happy, let it be. Accept it Your best friend dating your ex can definitely be awkward for the parties involved, and your friend will surely ask you if it is OK to do so.
Even though he lives in another state now, we have remained friends and talk maybe twice a year.
The rule is to be Honest (and if you liked him you coulda gone out with him)..I think that you woulda asked you're cousin first if she still had any feelings for him if not you coulda gone 4 it!
These are a few times when it's OK to date your best friend's ex (with her approval, obviously).
If your friend is 100 percent over her past relationship, you just might get the green light from her.
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.
If the latter, we strongly advise against acting on your feelings.
