Rules on dating friends exes
Related: How to Get Your Mother-in-Law to Stop Asking When You’ll Get Pregnant I’ve always sought out strong, smart older women as mentors and as friends, and Nancy and Alice are living, breathing examples of the kind of woman I’d like to be.

I got the unique opportunity to learn from both of them outside of a workplace setting, as well as witnessing how they balanced work and family life.
It didn't feel good worrying if he would trade in our friendship just for a forbidden make out with my best friend. And I don't think you should ever apologize or justify that sting.
For a moment, things got so bad that my ex and I stopped talking for a bit, but we're fine now, thankfully.
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.
But they were also both great wives, mothers, and friends, and I got to see many sides of their personalities.

So, he did the prudent thing and changed his status to Single. And because this is neither Vietnam nor the Wild West, we decided to implement some rules of etiquette for Mark Zuckerberg's handiwork.
At the same time, though, you don't need to be super close with their ex if you weren't super close with them before these two started dating.
So you’ve made it through the horrifying breakup with someone you cared about … To be friends or not to be friends, that is the question.
