There appears to be an “unspoken” rule or “girl code” when it comes to dating a friend’s ex.
Can you imagine if one of them is thinking in the back of their mind that they would be open to trying again if their current circumstances were different, i.e.
if they only were in the same location or if ever one of them broke up with their current partner.
Would you be devastated if she never spoke to you again?
If the answer is, “we were just acquaintances and didn’t talk regularly” and you know it really wouldn’t bother you if the friendship was severed then we would recommend that you have a conversation with her just for “good faith” and then proceed.
Steer clear of him…..it’s not worth it because she will most likely never trust you again..if you were innocent at the time.
Let’s face it there are casual relationships that never materialized and then there’s always that main “one” that got away or just didn’t work out but the feelings and respect for each other was always over the top.
But if you’ve always been close, is this man even worth it?
Is your friend happy in her new relationship and has long moved on?
We’re not saying that she has the deciding vote whether you proceed or not but we can tell you that by not having the conversation with her, your relationship with your girlfriend can go left quickly and you may have lost a friend you’ve had a lot longer than this relationship may last.
