Dating my ex husband


You could not wait to get those reassuring hugs and kisses throughout the day.  You loved just being beside him and how everything felt so “right”.

A couple years later, Kristen met someone else and the rest was history.  BUT.  She recently received a phone call from a college roommate who she considers a close friend.  “Eve” moved to New York after college for law school and a few weeks  earlier, had run into Kristen’s ex boyfriend at a party.  Eve remembered him from one of his visits to Chicago during senior year of college.  Eve and Kristen’s ex completely hit it off and as Eve told Kristen were now “seeing each other.”  Eve’s phone call to Kristen was to “let her know some news,” and was presented as a “isn’t it a small world?” rather than a “Hey, I hope it’s ok…”   It had only been a few weeks, but Kristen got the feeling that the relationship was somewhat serious.  She was surprised at how hurt she felt when hearing that her friend was dating someone she had been so heartbroken about.  She remembers even crying to Eve about it when they broke up.  Yes, Kristen knows she’s in a better place now, but she wonders if she has any right to be upset and if Eve should just know better than to date the ex of a good friend.

There is a good chance that when you start dating, no matter where you live, you will come across some potential candidates that you are already acquainted with. People you know might pleasantly surprise you by asking you out. And some of those folks may have previously been wed to a person you are familiar or even friendly with.
