My Boyfriend Shares An Apartment With His Ex But Says It’s Platonic. Should I Be Worried?
While you were dating your ex-girlfriend chances are that you had the opportunity to get to know her friends and even form your own relationship with her friends. At the conclusion of your relationship you may be tempted to enter into a relationship with a friend of your ex-girlfriend but this is not always advisable. There are some important factors to consider before you start to date a friend of your ex-girlfriend. The first thing to consider is the feelings of your girlfriend.
You should also consider how your relationship with your ex-girlfriend’s friend will impact their friendship and what your ex-girlfriend may have already told her friend about you.
Where you let those emotions lead you, or not, has everything to do with your convictions about what makes for a good, and also appropriate, relationship.
Is honesty the best policy with women? When coming out of a relationship, a friend should be there as a strong supportive shoulder. But what if you really, really fancy Sally, to the point you’re picturing sleepy Sundays and all sorts of lovely, luscious romance? Is it worth pursuing? My rule of thumb is that it’s fine unless it is a very good friend. If it’s a close friend, proceed with caution.
Is it ever a good idea to date a friend’s ex?
Evan, This may be an age-old question. My boyfriend is best friends with his ex-girlfriend. They dated for two and a half years, broke up 5 years ago, have many mutual friends. They met in graduate school and went through some hard times together, so I understand why they stay friends. However, they are way too close.
Thanks for any advice and replies.
Jun 4, Getty ImagesGetty Images Lots of people have told me unequivocally that they would never date a friend’s ex. They wholeheartedly believe that it’s wrong, disrespectful, and if a friend did that to them, they’d never talk to that person again. They believe this is something everybody knows, that they’re just following the rules. Advertisement – Continue Reading Below What I’ve noticed, though, is that every person I’ve heard espouse this worldview was straight. This rule is almost never stated or enforced among queer communities.
If you’re gay, you will almost inevitably date a friend’s ex at some point. Queer communities are often small and insular, and once you’ve found one, you tend to hold on to it for dear life.
Can I Date My Friend’s Ex-Girlfriend?
Rule number two in dating your ex: You have to be able to wipe the slate clean before you can get back together with an ex. In other words, try to learn about each other all over again. Instead of assuming you already know everything there is to know about your ex, give him a clean slate, forget the past, and re-learn him.
But don’t assume she doesn’t want an invite if you haven’t asked!
Is it love or is it lust? Is this a passing fancy or a potential love of your life? Most friendships last a lot longer than relationships, with few making it past the three month mark. The only way you might be OK is if the relationship was never serious they dated for a couple or weeks or a month or two and stayed friends. How old are you both?
Are you straight or gay? An odd thing to ask, right? Gay communities are smaller and also more insular: Why did they split up? If they mistreated your friend and left them not just broken-hearted but seriously messed up, why would you want to date them? How do they feel about them now? If you truly believe their version of events, why would you want to date them? Insulting whichever way you look at it.
It’s never OK to date your friend’s ex – and this is why
If your ex-boyfriend had a close group of friends, then you probably had the opportunity to meet them and foster your own relationships with them during the course of your relationship with your ex-boyfriend. Women are more likely than men to foster relationships quickly and to have a difficult time ending these relationships. For many women the thought of ending her friendships with her ex-boyfriend’s friends can seem as depressing as the thought of the romantic relationship with her ex-boyfriend coming to an end.
As a result of these feelings, many women may find themselves becoming attracted to a friend of their ex-boyfriend after they break up. You may feel tempted to enter into a relationship with one of his friends immediately but before doing so you should consider the fact that your ex-boyfriend’s friendship with his friends is not likely to end because you start to date one of them. You should also consider the fact that your ex-boyfriend may have shared personal details about your relationship with his friends that could complicate your new relationship.
Just because you have found a new love interest, you should not let go of the friendship you have cherished for so long.

The Bro Code has a scale that sets everything straight.
Is there some kind of man code that says that once a woman has been claimed by a member of your pack there is no way another can ever date her down the road? Is there a time frame from when they dated that makes her totally off limits to you? Does that mean you need to wait around another six until you can do anything?
Until he has another girlfriend? What are the rules then? Your friend is dating an amazing girl. The whole time your friend was dating this great woman, you always made sure to tell your buddy how lucky he was to have a woman like her. Every time you hung out with them in a group you guys really got along with each other.
