Story behind this is, last July my former bff and I got into an argument over her talking behind my back and she just said some things I can’t forgive her for.She’d been messaging my mom trying to get a hold of me and trying to make up for it but then out of the blue she was in a committed relationship with one of my exes.Under what circumstance is it acceptable to pursue your friend’s former love interest? because I just don’t see why of all the people in this world you need to choose to put yourself in such a complicated situation. Read on for Fox News Magazine editor Meghan Sharp’s guest blog about this very subject: Simon Cowell recently sparked some scandalous headlines when it emerged that he is set to become a father — with the wife of his close friend.
It’s never a good idea to date the ex if she’s still got feelings for him. He was severely emotionally abusive, manipulative and generally treated me like crap for the whole three years we were together. Everyone in my life eventually found out and got me to leave him. So, you were right to acknowledge that it wasn’t the “ex-factor” that made you angry. Unfortunately, this is NOT a normal situation and is in no way a run-of-the-mill case of “la la la my friend wants to date my ex boyfriend and now I’m annoyed! This girl is supposed to be YOUR friend and KNOWS that this asshat was ABUSIVE to her best friend. Under what circumstances is your friend even SPEAKING to this freak show, let alone dating him? She’s clearly being heavily manipulated, and is falling for it. Your ex is not the only one who is bad for you anymore. It’s hard to watch someone screw up their own life. All at once you want to knock some sense into her for being such an idiot, and punch her for dating your ex boyfriend. Through her actions, she's essentially saying that she has no self-worth, that she doesn't give a f*ck about you went through as an abuse survivor, and she cares more about this guy than she does about you. Honestly, this was likely the final nail in the coffin.I’m now in a happy relationship with a wonderful guy and I have everything on track. She was one of the people who encouraged you to get away from him and now she’s going to play house? (Something you and she both know this dude is famous for). It’s a mixture of anger, pity, rejection and frustration. So, while the emotions may be running high, and you’re feeling a lot of feelings, I think you have to remove yourself entirely. She’s holding onto a part of your life that is still very painful for you. I’m sure this is not the first time this friend has done something shady or put a guy before your friendship. She's enjoys writing music, poetry and fiction and hopes to have her first novel out soon. If you love your best friend far more than her ex, do the right thing and find another guy. She's a tech geek at heart, but loves telling it like it is when it comes to love, beauty and style.
