So you met this guy at a bar, and the two of you immediately hit it off. Next thing you know, the two of you are in a relationship — a real, bonafide relationship!
But then, he stops being quite as great as he was that night when you met him at the bar, so eventually, you two break up.
Fast forward a few months, and you run into his friend.
But this isn't just any friend. It's that one friend you always thought was kind of cute and whom you loved talking to. You guys start talking, and the next thing you know, you two hit it off and now, the both of you are dating.
So what will your ex think of all this? Well, check out these real responses from dudes on Reddit and get an idea of what exactly is going through his head.
As long as you and the friend are in love, it's cool.
For these guys, their friendship with the guy is over.
This guy would be happy for his friend.
These guys think it sucks to suck for their friends.
It'll depend on how this guy felt about you.
It's whatever for these dudes.
So it seems like it really just depends on who your ex is and how it all went down between you two... but in my opinion, I'd probably just play it safe and make sure your new guy asks before a friendship gets ruined.
