Dealing with your ex dating your friend
When your boyfriend demotes your romance from a full-blown relationship to a friendship, it's the same thing as a breakup. While you might think being friends with your ex boyfriend will allow you to stay close, keep in touch, and eventually work your way back into his heart again, all of those things couldn't be less true.
Establishing a friendship with someone you're still in love with leads to jealousy, anxiety, and tons of self-inflicted heartache.
So when a guy offers to be friends with you, it's not uncommon to want to accept such an arrangement, even temporarily.
Because we're emotionally dependant upon the people we love, we don't want to let go.
Be brave enough to do things you've never done before.
