Dating an exs best friend
You two are done, and it’s been years since you were a thing.
We were at a Friendsgiving potluck, and I girl-crushed on her instantly.
The news resulted in one of the few panic attacks I've ever experienced. It's years later, and by now, she could think of me just as a nuisance or buzz kill, but I feel queasy when I hear her name or see something Sarah-specific-funny.
She's a walking, breathing, highly Google-able testament to how I messed up.
At the same time, do you really want to force this guy to basically choose between you and his friend?
That in itself isn’t the best way to start a relationship, and you also stand to lose more people in your life if things go wrong.
