There are many reasons why a former flame and a former flame’s best friend could wish to get in touch with you. Examining the factors that may be driving their actions is the first thing that has to be done to get a handle on the problem.
Your Ex Hasn’t Gone On With their Their Life Yet
It’s natural to want to believe that your ex has moved on from their relationship with you and is now enjoying a fulfilling partnership with someone else, but it’s important to remember that this isn’t always the case. People can take much longer than expected to get over previous relationships, and even years after the end of a romantic partnership, they may find that they cannot shake the strong feelings they have for a former partner. Your ex may be reaching out to you because they’re not ready to move on just yet, or at the very least, not ready to move on in front of their current significant other. If this is the case, the person may be reaching out to you in the hopes that you will provide them with some form of closure or confirmation that the relationship between the two of you has ended. This would allow them to move on with their life and truly let go of the relationship they had in the past.
You and your former boyfriend’s closest friend used to be really good friends in the past. However, since you split up, many things have changed. You may have found someone new, but your ex-closest boyfriend’s buddy may have done the same.
He reached out to you for no apparent reason, and it would appear that he is interested in reconciling with you.
This might end badly for everyone involved since, if he learns that your ex-boyfriend is still in love with you, his feelings may also be damaged. So, what are some good options for you?
You and she used to be really good friends.
It might be helpful if you were careful not to share too much information with your ex-boyfriend. It’s possible that he’ll act as though he’s still interested in reconciling his relationship with you.
However, he may be using this as a cover to pry information out of you about your life. If he asks you questions about the things that are going on in your life, you should avoid answering them unless the inquiries are very precise, such as “how is school?” or “what exactly has been going on in this area?”
He may seek encouragement or pointers as he navigates his first serious relationship.
He may seek encouragement or guidance as he navigates his new relationship.
It’s possible that he wants to discuss his new relationship and how things are going with yours. He may ask how the two of you are coping now that they have ended their relationship.
It won’t do any harm if you continue to be friends with your ex-boyfriend’s best friend.
The single most crucial point to remember is that maintaining a friendship with your ex-boyfriend and his close friend is perfectly acceptable. Even though he isn’t the person, you are dating anymore, the best friend of the man who used to be your boyfriend is still your close buddy.
Even if he doesn’t provide you with anything else you want, you can still maintain your friendship with him. He is simply another caring and concerned somebody in your life who wants the best for you.
Do not ignore him if he tries to get in touch with you. Maintain your courtesy and friendliness, but keep the talk focused on the spiritual aspect of the topic.
If he brings up your ex-boyfriend or makes an effort to get personal with you, this may be a sign that he still has feelings for you. Just keep in mind that you are friends with your ex’s best friend should not give you any cause for concern at this stage.
