I felt like a naïve chump who was the subject of their laughter. If you find yourself in this situation, here are some tips on how to handle it and how to keep from going insane: 1. Plus, when the relationship ends, the only thing people will remember is how you reacted. DO NOT make a scene and get into a girl fight with the girl. You don't' have to be overly friendly to your ex and your friend.
I think, "My ex is dating my friend" is very common, especially if you live in the suburbs, where everyone knows everyone. I remember people in my neighborhood would tell me they saw them out and I would seriously cringe, and then go home and cry. Make sure not to react in front of others because it could get back to your ex and your friend (I mean, your ex friend).
People often have a bad opinion of pursuing friends’ exes.Everyone has that someone who got away — the guy or girl who will always be “the one.” Maybe he came into your life sporadically, or maybe he was there all along, but you never forget him. After this love with “the one” dies, you are hesitant to begin a new one.You complain about having no luck in love, but you don't do anything to change that. You’re into it, he’s into it, there’s some serious chemistry, and you might have stumbled upon something really special. In discussing this topic with my female friends, it seems to me that men are especially experienced in dealing with this dilemma. Now, you’re faced with a most unenviable predicament: Walk away from someone who could end up being the love of your life, or put one of your friendships in jeopardy. What they are doing is really uncool and unacceptable.
