Jennifer Aniston and bestie Courtney Cox were both romantically linked with Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz - and Katy Perry and Taylor Swift both had relationships with John Meyer (though that one did cause Bad Blood).Simply say, “Look, I just thought you should know that (their exes name) and I have gone on a few dates.I’m not sure if anything will come of it but I know you dated in the past and I thought you should know.”Let me say once more, it’s never going to be the best idea you had, but if you honestly do believe their ex is your future love of your life, here’s how to have the best shot at keeping the friendship.
If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at [email protected](be sure to read these guidelines first). I’m 22, about to graduate college in a couple semesters, and am wondering if I’m stupid for dating my ex-boyfriend.

I met him when I was 18 and he was a couple years older.
We dated for a few months, then broke it off because I wanted to date around more in college.
A couple of silent years later, we decided to date again.It went on for a year, and was pretty great, but we had to end it because at the time, he was going to grad school far away.We had no end date, and our futures didn’t look so similar as I wanted to move across the country after graduation.About a year and a half passed, life was fun focusing on school and friends and terrible hook-ups, and then we saw each other at a spring football showcase before the season started.We became friends and slowly inched into dating again. He’s transferring out of his grad school and wants to follow me to my internship, and we both have been talking very in-depth about longer-term goals (like marriage, jobs, etc.) for the both of us.We initially thought we were too young (we still think we are) to discuss things seriously like that before. I made the mistake earlier of overindulging them with a lot of the nitty-gritty, petty things of our relationship when I was younger, so I get their bias. They like to tell me what to do and what choices to make, and they get very disappointed and angry if I don’t follow them, to the point where I have felt suicidal for not choosing their path.
