To The Girl Dating My Ex-Boyfriend
Her experiences in the dating world inspire her "Relationship Rant" column. Check back every week for her take on dating and relationships. Atlanta, Georgia CNN -- "Would you be upset if a friend starting dating someone they knew you were once deeply in love with? This is the status I was greeted with this week on the Facebook page of one of my dear girlfriends. My knee-jerk response was "Duh, who wouldn't be pissed? I'm not trying to generalize, but most of my female friends talk about past boyfriends, dissecting why their relationships didn't work. From "he just doesn't get me" to "we're too different" to "why did we stay together THAT long," women tend to overanalyze past relationships. However, the one thing that seems to be the unwritten rule among us is that we would never even consider dating our friends' exes.
The guy who you wake up to every morning is an amazing person. He will always put your happiness above his no matter what it means. Once, back when we were sixteen, I made him take a defensive driving course just so I could get my license early.
That being said, I met a girl online a few weeks before I learned about you… in fact, she sparked me to search for answers because I really really clicked with her at first. I noticed a shift in our texting relationship during the period I was reading your emails and trying to learn. This was before I learned of your texting style. She sent me a text this morning saying she went back to her ex boyfriend and wanted to be honest with me. Could you help me out by giving me some advice on how I might be able to get this girl back into my world?
She Went Back to Her Ex Boyfriend
Her ex is her ex for a reason, just like your ex is yours for a reason. You might ask yourself why a girl like her would stay with a guy like that or any length of time. While many unfortunate ladies out there have had to deal with a jerk or two, a girl with a toxic ex-has had a different level of discomfort altogether.
