I received a question from one of my readers and I decided to post it here and also ask for your opinions. Here it goes:
Two years ago, my friend and her husband had a nasty divorce due to irreconcilable issues. At the time of their divorce, she confided in me a lot—she told me they didn’t love each other anymore and that’s why they fell apart. I felt there was something more she wasn’t saying but I didn’t press further; I just pretended to believe her.
A few months ago, I ran into her ex-husband, Tim at a party and we danced together. He’s a really good dancer—we had so much fun. After the party, I realized we had a connection but I dismissed it as a misinterpretation of feelings.
We’ve bumped into each other several times since after the party and I sense he’s attracted to me. Fortunately, the last time we bumped into each other, he asked for my phone number which I gave to him with excitement.
The next day, he asked me out to dinner! I think it’s a date! I know I should be very excited but now I’m just skeptical. Tim seems like a really nice guy and he’s so sexy!—I would like to go out with him and see where it leads but I don’t want to hurt my friend Lucy.
What should I do? Should I date my friend’s ex?
The floor is open for comments, opinions and suggestions. So, what do you think? Is it okay for her to date Tim?
