Kind of a silly title.
Let me give you a fictional situation: My friend Phillip is dating Sarah. Sarah and I end up growing to be friends because I'm such good friends with Phillip and we all hang out together. Phillip and Sarah break up. Is it okay for me to remain friends with Sarah? Phillip and I were friends first, and we are better friends, but Sarah and I get along and have a lot in common. I don't want to hurt Phillip by hanging out with Sarah and I certainly wouldn't bring Sarah around if I were hanging out with Phillip...What is the right and wrong here?
Now, on a non-fiction note, I have been in this situation before. I have friends on myspace/facebook who are my friends' ex's, we don't really hang out ever, but we are friends.
What if the situation arose one day where the ex called me and wanted to hang out; would that be okay? I've also been in the situation where I wanted nothing to do with the ex and end all ties. It's always been curious to me if people do this - or how people handle the situation.
This isn't a very insightful TFT, but more just me being curious what other people think about it.
So... getting back into the TFT Tradition... Do you think it's right to remain friends with an ex of your friend? Have you done it? Did good or bad come of it? Did your friend know? If you haven't done it, why not? Just looking for general thoughts here ... ...
