Dealing with an ex dating a friend 1 on 1 video chat
“I’ve also tried to remind myself that people are dumb and make mistakes, and they can both care about and betray me in the same way that I can miss and hate them.” She adds that her friend became “more human” to her rather than a “distant monster” when they reconnected at the wedding.“I feel some closure, but I don’t know if I’ll ever totally forgive them,” she says.“I was crushed and told her I didn’t have anything to say to her,” Lora says. This has been the hardest year I’ve ever had, in part because of the mental anguish I felt from their simultaneous betrayals.” She is, however, grateful that most of tight-knit friend group voiced some sort of team Lora mentality.It’s been two years since the breakup and about a year since Lora’s ex and best friend started dating.“One of my absolute best friends lives there, so I strongly encouraged them to hang out.I wanted so badly for him to be okay, [which was] a trend in our relationship.” Before Lora knew about their relationship, she made a plan to visit her two biggest support systems in one trip after her ex relocated to this new city.
Resentment is harbored, and group dynamics forever change.
I dealt with a similar sort of situation with an ex and a best friend.
