Assess the situation by putting yourself in their shoes and thinking about how you would react if the situation was flipped.
Sometimes it seems like the universe just likes to laugh at your life.
That's certainly the case when you find yourself attracted to your ex's friend!
You’re into it, he’s into it, there’s some serious chemistry, and you might have stumbled upon something really special. In discussing this topic with my female friends, it seems to me that men are especially experienced in dealing with this dilemma.

You’ll be strongly tempted to gossip about the person you both know, each repeating what they said about you (never dreaming you’d end up going out) and be massively curious about how their relationship was and how you compare.And there certainly are times when people who go down this path find that it really wasn’t worth it.But if you’re wondering how to go about dating your friend’s ex, and you think the pursuit might really have potential, don’t worry, you are not a terrible person.They believe this is something everybody knows, that they're just following the rules.
