    The ex boyfriend wants to set me up with someone he knows, should I do it?

    My ex boyfriend and ex good friend are now dating for a month now and I have had no contact with either one of them . This bothers me because they both  betrayed my trust in them. The ex boyfriend has found  someone that he thinks I would be interested in dating. I feel he is doing this out of guilt. In a way I would like to date someone new but if I contact him I feel that is opening the doors to having contact with each other. I feel he is or they are thinking that if I start to date someone it will be easier or ok on everyone involved in our circle of friends. Any advice?

    Find someone on your own, you dont want to be stuck in the same little world with them. You have a ticket to try out something new. If you accept the ex's advice that does open a door to friendship with them. After they broke your trust, do you really want to let them back in so easily? try something new. The ex might end up hookin you up with someone that might be like him and just leave you for someone else.

    I think he's doing it out of guilt too, and to try to make himself look good amongst your circle of friends. First he runs off with your best friend and then he wants to set you up! What a jerk. I hope you find someone nice to date too, but you don't need to contact him about one!  You shouldn't give him (or her) any more of your time, as you said, they've both betrayed your trust, and who you date is no longer any of their business.

    Wish you all the best in finding someone better!

    You should date that person only if you want to or like that person. You should not do it forcibly

    If you want to be their friends then I think that's fine. If you become friends with this new guy and something happens okay. But I wouldn't rush it. Listen to what your heart is saying.

    You already figured it out!  Why would you continue to hang around snakes, not only are you opening up room for more betrayal but you are showing that you are up for being punked AgAiN!  You actually trust him enough to date someone he suggest after he left you and is now dating your ex best friend, which really means when you guys were together the odds of him cheating on you with her were BIG.  He didn't have your best interest before so why would he have it now......throw up the dueces sign and keep it moving.  You already called this situation for what it is, find another circle that would be of assistance to you where people aren't degenerates and slime balls.  Let them be and let them slither around each other.  There is no point in giving people like the another "chance".......ciao

    Sounds like a tricky web.  Is this so he can compare notes or possibly one day get in your good graces....Find a new love on your own....

    if you and him has worked it out to become friends and stuff then i don't see the problem, but if he hurt you badly, there was no working out to be friends, and he just popped out of no where, HELL NO!!!!! there is always a catch.
