Thirdly, yet without intending to come across as territorial in a caveman-defecating-on-his-patch-of-land sort of way, that person was with you and was part of your life. They were someone who significantly contributed to shaping the person you are today. Anyone familiar with Friends will be fully aware of how often they swapped and shared partners.

They've both told me things that make it clear they shouldn't be together. I've advised them to end their relationship because they're often unhappy. They called it off a while ago and said they'd try to remain friends. I also recently ended a relationship, and a few nights ago, my guy friend came over from the aforementioned couple to hang out. I used to have a HUGE crush on him — before he and my friend started dating. That night, we talked about our failed relationships and wound up hooking up.

The Dating Nerd is a shadowy figure whose whereabouts and identifying details remain unknown. What we do know is that he is really, really good at dating. He's been on more dates than you can shake a lengthy bar tab at, and he's here to help the average guy step his dating game up a notch — or several. I'm in a pickle. Over the last couple of weeks, I've been hanging out with a close friend's ex-girlfriend, platonically, after we ran into each other at Starbucks.
It just sort of happened. In discussing this topic with my female friends, it seems to me that men are especially experienced in dealing with this dilemma.
