My BF and
I broke up two months ago. Now I really wanted to go out with his best bud. But
now the guy I'm crushing on is so sweet he knows my ex still likes me and
doesn't want to date. But I want to date him bad!!! What do I do?
His Answer: “I would
just try to get closer to him before actually trying to get him because the guy
obviously wants to give his friend/ your ex time to recover from the break up.
Eventually, your ex will get over it and you can try to get with his friend,”
says Willi S., 16.
Your ex needs time to move on, and your ex’s best bud is just being there for
him. He’s doing the right thing and not dating his best friend’s ex! Maybe once
your ex moves on, you can go for his best friend.
Your ex’s best bud, is, well, doing what best buds do! Become friends with your
ex’s friend first. Give everyone more time. Talk with your ex’s best friend, or
even with your ex to figure out what’s going on and how he’s feeling. Once
things seem better, like when your ex is over you, that is the time to go for
the other guy! But beware—this situation can get messy. Don’t try to pull your
ex and his best friend apart. Be sure to wait long enough—how would you feel if
your best friend dated your ex right after you two broke up?
