With a large coffee in tow (that’s pronounced caw-fee to my non-New Yorkers) this closeted “self-help” addict and Lifestyles writer is on a continuous quest to discover how to have the best romantic life.An old soul with new age sarcasm, Tiffani’s sharp, witty and tell-it-like-it-is attitude has resulted in many a snafu as she tries to navigate and conquer the most challenging and complicated assignment of all: dating the New York City man.Remember that you can love them both without them necessarily having to enjoy each other.This goes for friends and partners who haven't dated, too, now that I think of it.But don't assume she doesn't want an invite if you haven't asked!
If you're gay, you will almost inevitably date a friend's ex at some point.
The reverse is also true; no matter how much you love discussing your dude with your besties, his ex can probably live without hearing the details of his current sex life. It's OK to come to your partner for advice if you're arguing with your friend, or vice versa, but absolutely resist the urge to belittle or insult one of them to the other.
Save it for your diary or for anyone who didn't date him. This can be extremely tempting if they ended on bad terms and you know you'll find a sympathetic ear.
Nine times out of 10, they know the backstory of your past relationships, including the situation between you, your ex and his boy. In fact, they are more receptive to your ex’s friend in his new role – your new man. You can, however, mourn the relationship and then get with his friend. It can be damaging if you don’t approach things respectfully and carefully.
(Ain’t nothing cute about being the person who destroyed a friendship).
