Dating an exs friend

Your ex will never experience with this new person exactly what they did with you.

If your ex moved on before you did, you might feel as if they won or wonder why you didn't find someone else first.

Celebrities might seem like an unusual source for relationship advice — but Taylor Swift recently dropped a tidbit of her dating philosophy that we all may be able to apply to our own love lives.

In the September issue of Vanity Fair, the pop superstar revealed that she and her girlfriends (whom she famously refers to as her “squad”) sometimes date the same people — and none of them minds.

Why fight the urge to date someone you really like just because the two of you have a friend in common?

Your ex just happened to stumble upon someone else before you did. When my ex first got a new girlfriend, I feared that it endangered the friendship we formed post-breakup.

With the second (non) ex, I realized there was an ounce of hope lingering in me that maybe we would reunite one day, and seeing that he was no longer available crushed it.

I know I'm not alone in feeling devastated over an ex moving on.

“Now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other,” she adds.

“And just because you have the same taste in men, we don’t hold that against each other.” That’s a pretty progressive point of view — and not necessarily one exclusive to celebs who move in A-list social circles.
