Best friends dating your ex

Whatever it is, you know that a lot of your interests are aligned.If they weren't, you would have hid him on Facebook the second that feature became available.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.Some reports indicate the relationship between the married couple was already over by the time Cowell moved in. While many details remain unknown, this revelation raises a question: Is your friend’s ex always off-limits?Dating your best friend may seem intimidating, but it can also be the best decision of your life.My now-husband and I both involved ourselves with many different romantic relationships before giving our friendship a shot at something else, and I feel like if I didn't consider dating my best friend, my life would be drastically different (and probably way sad)."But Karen, I'm not attracted to my best friend!For example, if you're both psyched about the outdoors, a hike will never be boring.If you both like music, you can always check to see who's playing at the local club.

In your head, you didn't feel the need to "try" in front of your best friend — you were just you.Obviously there's a shared interest or two which caused you to meet up in the first place.Or, maybe it was a mutual friend who brought you together.Unless, of course, you prefer the challenges of trying to meet and connect someone who doesn't know anything about you.While I don't regret the romantic misadventures I had before things clicked with my best friend and I, I definitely wish I could go back and tell myself that dating didn't have to be so difficult, or so heartbreaking — the key to true happiness was right in front of me the entire time.
