Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, is it bad that I'm dating my ex's friend?"

Dear Carol,
I was in love with a boy who didn’t treat me right, so I started dating his friend. Is this wrong or right?

Dear Confused,
If you dated his friend to get back at him or make him jealous, it’s wrong. If you dated his friend because you two actually care about each other and are trying to build a supportive relationship, that’s OK. It’s good that you recognized you weren’t being treated well, and maybe you were attracted to his friend’s contrasting kindness. Just be sure you didn’t jump too soon from one BF to the next. Being alone is OK, too!
