Statuses about friends dating your ex
Celebrities might seem like an unusual source for relationship advice — but Taylor Swift recently dropped a tidbit of her dating philosophy that we all may be able to apply to our own love lives.
In the September issue of Vanity Fair, the pop superstar revealed that she and her girlfriends (whom she famously refers to as her “squad”) sometimes date the same people — and none of them minds.
“It’s almost like the sisterhood has such a higher place on the list of priorities for us,” Swift tells the mag.
If the friend does have a problem with this, the choice to mess up the squad is completely up to you.
In other words, don’t bring your beau along to tell your friend.
As the pal dating the ex, you’re the first person responsible for maintaining the friendship — so the burden of breaking the news is on you, and it must be done respectfully.
An in-person conversation is ideal, but a phone call is the very least you can do — so don’t even think about texting, “Hey BFF, just want to let u know me and ur ex are dating.” No one likes a conversation that starts with the question, “What are we?
” But we’re not talking about a normal relationship here.
