Songs about best friend dating ex girlfriend
If your pal grabbed drinks with a dude three times before things fizzled, he doesn’t qualify as an ‘ex’.
(Although if he ghosted her, which is how most of these things end, don’t be surprised if she’s not thrilled he wants to take you out.) Super short ‘relationships’ (under a month) shouldn’t throw a guy into that off-limits territory.
"My friend had a one night stand with my ex a few years after we broke up and I was fine with it, because I’m in the camp that what’s past is past.
Once you break up, there’s no territory to claim," says the very chill Sunny W.

“Finding yourself attracted to a friend’s ex doesn’t mean you’re a villain,” says Brandy Engler, Ph. “We’re often authentic around our friends' boyfriends because we see them as off limits and we’re not trying to impress them.
But that authenticity helps with attraction—it’s the foundation of real connection.” Realistically speaking, it’s no shocker that best friends who share tastes in things like Chilean Sauvignon Blanc and velvet vintage bags would also be attracted to the same guy.
It’s not fun or foolproof, but it'll be so much better for her than catching a glimpse of you two together on social media. That’s a cowardly move—an honest conversation can save a relationship,” says Engler.
