They worked together on a talent show dance, which involved a lot of practicing and meeting up after school.
She would come to me with these things often and I started to think that maybe my boyfriend was a little bit creepy and obsessed.
This went on for about a month and I finally asked her if she thought I should break up with him.
Check back every week for her take on dating and relationships.
Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- "Would you be upset if a friend starting dating someone they knew you were once deeply in love with?
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.
They will support you more than you could have possibly imagined. What are the chances they are going to end up happily ever after? Focus on your kids, your career, and your love life, if you choose. I'm so so sorry." She will still be upset, but at least you're thinking of your friend's feelings. If she goes off on you, at least you can say you handled it the best way you could have.
So, let them have their fun and concentrate on making your own life better. I hope you understand that we don't want to hurt you." 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. 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). Does Gretchen Weiners have a point about the rules of feminism?
