Rules dating friends friends
If one of you just wants a casual thing and the other wants much more, there’s a big communication problem, and things won’t end well.
At least give it a cooling off period before you make that move of asking your friend’s ex out.
Otherwise it will look like you were just waiting for the first opportunity to pounce on the friend’s ex.
You can’t unhear what he told you about himself, but you shouldn’t use it against him at the first sign of trouble.
Since you already have a connection and respect each other, one of the worst things you can do when dating a friend is start playing games.
One of the most important rules for dating a friend is actually going on dates.
It might be tempting to keep things the way they always were and just throw sex into the mix, but you’ll be better off if you take things seriously.
That looks awful and breaks the hidden dating rules on mating and friendship.
The same goes for if they ask you out, indicate interest but explain that you want to be sensitive to your friend’s situation.
The next thing is do you ask the best friend or friend how they feel about you dating their ex?
