Dating the ex wife
There is no point in dating your ex if you are going to focus on past problems during the present relationship.Shannon Steen-Larsen earned a bachelor's degree in marriage, family, and human development, with a minor in business management.Set aside time for each of them and honor it — don't drag your lover along on girls' night out (not even if your lover is a lady; queer chicks are about this), and don't invite your friend to what was supposed to be a romantic dinner at home. Don't do this ever, but especially not if his last girlfriend is the person you're going rock climbing with Sunday.No matter what his answer is, it's going to make things weird.Lots of people have told me unequivocally that they would never date a friend's ex.
The reverse is also true; no matter how much you love discussing your dude with your besties, his ex can probably live without hearing the details of his current sex life. It's OK to come to your partner for advice if you're arguing with your friend, or vice versa, but absolutely resist the urge to belittle or insult one of them to the other.You forget why the relationship ended or who ended it, and the two of you decide to start dating again.
