Same advice, different meaning

Best friend dating ex fiance of sofia

For most people

Keeping your thoughts limited to this tightly knit circle will also prevent you from blabbering your opinion about the new couple to everyone. If you find yourself in this situation, you need to be prepared. This will destroy trust, and with it any chance of maintaining the friendship. There is probably a reason that your friend and the ex broke up in the first place, and over time your friend will most likely realize that. If you're the person dating your friend's ex, you've got a much harder job.

While many would say the ideal solution is to avoid run-ins completely, in many cases it's just not possible, especially when there are overlapping friends, locations, and events. Don't force them to come to that conclusion any sooner than they are comfortable with.

Same advice, different meaning. It's nice to ask one or two close friends to help you out. They can keep you posted on what they see and hear about this new relationship, as it's never fun to be the last to know.

If you get caught in a confrontation, just smile, have a pre-planned friendly sentence or two to recite, keep it short and sweet, and move on. Ideally, you know that at best this situation is uncomfortable, and it's your job to talk to your friend. If you want to keep your friendship, the worst possible thing you can do is lie.
