It sucks to let go of a long-time friendship, but she’s drawn a line in the sand that can’t be washed away by any tide.
There appears to be an “unspoken” rule or “girl code” when it comes to dating a friend’s ex.
and that she'd like to know how I felt about it becoming a “thing.”Naturally, I told her that what really bothered me was not that he was my ex, but that the fact that he was emotionally abusive to me didn't stop her from wanting to date him. You’re over him, there is no love lost and if your friend wanted to date him..would be no big deal. You have a wonderful boyfriend now you loves you, and is kind to you.
Focus on that and all the other wonderful, fulfilling aspects of your life. She’s the one who did this to your friendship and you MUST put yourself FIRST.
