Rules for dating my friend
The second thing is, when your friend is finally over an ex, it would be weird for them to see you with this person.
The three of you have a great time, but soon after, you can't get a hold of one of the friends.(Hopefully the new guy won't be put in a situation of having to decide between you and your ex, but if that does happens, fingers crossed it comes out in your favor.)When you do start dating, definitely try to avoid hanging out with your ex early on.Let the relationship breathe and build without his influence.Also, once you start dating the friend, don't keep it a big secret.Your ex will likely feel worse if he finds out that his pal and his ex have been seeing each other behind his back.
