Apparently Angie's divorce was not an amicable one, and her ex was infuriated with both of them.After hearing this story (and numerous others like it), I thought about Brian and Angie's situation, and my deliberation led me to flesh out the question It's a complicated issue, and every situation is different, but I do have some insights and thoughts I'd like to share.Why the distinction between an “ex” of hers you know and one you don’t know? I know of many people (including Christians) who have met their spouse by way of a friend, even through a former boyfriend or girlfriend.
Brian had been divorced for three years when he filled out the cumbersome e Harmony profile.
Looking through all the profiles on other dating sites was daunting, so he decided to let a computer do the mate selection for him.
However, the match had an unexpected complication: Angie had been married to a long-ago friend of Brian's.
Nevertheless, Brian thought about it and decided to contact Angie anyway.
He had a good feeling about this, and as luck would have it, his instincts were on target.
Among the matches e Harmony's algorithms presented him with, he discovered Angie, a beautiful and intelligent woman who shared many of his passions.
I feel they are letting me down and are not friends at all but just doing whatever is easiest and least confrontational.
EDITOR' S NOTE: He Said-She Said is a biweekly advice column for singles featuring a question from a reader with responses from a male and female point of view.
I kept my friendship with both during their courtship and never “girlfriend-tampered” throughout their relationship. Sometime later, I approached my buddy and told him about my interest in her and asked if he minded if I asked her out.
He told me, “Sure, no problem, I don’t care.” If the shoe was on the other foot, I would hope I would have responded in the same way.
When friends date other friends' exes, it’s much more likely to end in a fiery blaze of disaster, than in the swapping of humorous anecdotes at the local watering hole.
