My best friend is now dating my ex boyfriend
It just hurts so bad, and I have to lie through my teeth saying I'm happy for them.
When I was a sophomore in high school, my best friend started dating my ex behind m back (while I was on vacation! The situation was a total mess – we got into a huge fight, I lost my best friend forever and it set the stage for a ton of fun insecurities and trust issues.
And a month-long relationship may not even count as a real "ex", but going after the remains of a four year relationship puts you on the bottom of my list and I don't even know you. Boredom/horny Maybe you're in the middle of a dry spell. Your ex is familiar and it won't increase your number at all #recycle. Satisfaction You know you broke up for some reason, but the sex is still damn good.
Today, me and a couple of friends were hanging out.
Basically, don't be the bitch who dates your best friend's ex. The things that used to annoy you kinda start turning you on.
Like I said, years down the road perhaps you can consider it if you're still into it. Whatever the reason is, you have a moment of weakness and you hit up your ex. They ask about your dog and how your grandma Sue is doing, and for some reason you're aroused.
After chattering for a couple minutes, my ex stood up and openly said, "Me and Rachel(Best Friend) love eachother." I was completely shocked. I still have feelings for him, and right now it seems like I just want to break down and cry.
Dealing with this awkward arrangement will likely bring about a roller-coaster of feelings and fears but it is great that you've decided to deal with it rather than ignore it.
Even though I no longer had feelings for my ex, that didn't mean I would want him shacking up with my best friend! Luckily, they didn't hook up, but I felt like my ex would have if given the opportunity. As far as I'm concerned, there's only one rule when it comes to friends dating exes and that is: YOU CAN' T DO IT. If that doesn't get your dick limp, I don't know what will.
And that created a whole shitshow of drama and insecurity for me. 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.
Then, for some reason or another, you guys break up. You try hanging out with new friends but mainly feel miserable and alone. You can’t understand why every other friend isn’t mad at her. But even though you’re furious with both of them, you still miss both of them so much and you hate it.
Now you’re sad and lonely and totally not over him at all. You finally come to the conclusion that you’ll never move on or trust anyone again.
