It’s never OK to date your friend’s ex – and this is why

And that fight is never over. The only thing to do if youre breaking social patterns is slog through the social judgment and stop caring what others think. But this, too, takes almost superhuman effort.
From Hell to Healing: My journey with my husband’s ex-wife
I entered the relationship with my husband with positive preconceived notions of his ex based on what I had seen growing up in my own family; My mom and stepmom getting along fabulously. So my confusion began early on when I expected her to treat me neutrally or better — not like the enemy.

Years later it would become obvious that nothing I could ever do or say would change her image of me.

I called him today- after leaving him over 5 years ago and being married and having kids and not talking to him for almost 5 years. I love my husband, but I still love my ex-boyfriend. I didn’t think that what we had was enough because I wasn’t fully satisfied with him. When I was with him, I constantly thought of the man who is now my husband. Now that I am married, I constantly think of my ex.
Anyways, I dreamed about him last night.

I have a Lily, too! They are the best! So, where I was all about the context of the hug, Karen was all about the clarity of it! In other words, it is her belief that in order for a hug to truly mean something a man will make some type of deceleration of intent before engaging in the act. They tend to obsess over them because they still love them even if the relationship might have been abusive and want them back. Because dating is difficult, they find it easier to want to go back to their ex-boyfriends.
They ask me if their ex still loves them or misses them or thinks about them, which is an answer I cannot ethically provide them. What I can do is provide them with possible answers.

Also, this is a narrative of my own experiences. It is not meant to be a guide or advice for other guys. Lastly, I do not intend to degrade or belittle women. Medellin just happens to have many of them.

The last few months were rough because his grandmother passed away after being in the hospital for a few months. I tried to be there for him but he totally withdrew and would reject my advances and we started fighting a lot because of it. He told me he loves me, but felt like I was smothering him and he needed to find himself. He suggested we stay friends but I told him that would be too hard on me and he said I can contact him anytime. Should I text him? Try to stay friends? Is there any hope of getting him back?
I can relate to both your situation and his. I remember, years ago, when I was extremely unhappy with my job and a few other areas of my life. I was dating a woman who really was a great girlfriend, but I was totally not in the right place to be in a relationship.
