    okay so me and my ex boyfreind are broken up now for like a month and have been together for 3 years. I'm still recovering and trying to move on.

    however I just found out my ex boyfreind is dating my best friend. she didn't tell me. my other friend did. like was she planning this he whole time to go behind my back and date my ex boyfreind? I know I have no right to feel like this and I know she is not doing anything wrong but why do I feel so betrayed?

    I don't speak to her anymore but I don't know how to deal with this. I am jealous and angry at the same time. my heart is broken. any advise on what could do?
    You dated him for literally 3 years, your bound to be hurt. Your 'best friend' is not your best friend. If she was, she would've never got with him. You're allowed to be hurt and upset, these two were the ones you trusted with your life with and that's what happened. She should've told you and considered your feelings first. I doubt they'll last long, I just hope you never take him back, no matter how much you love him, you don't deserve to go through that. I'm sorry to heart about this. It's best to block both of them from everything and keep your distance. Surround yourself with good friends and family. Always try to keep yourself busy so you don't have time to think about whats happened. Time will heal everything slowly

    That's a dog act. You just don't do that.

    You are absolutely right to be pissed; three years is a substantial relationship, no decent person does that to their friends. If it lasted a couple of months, even then it would still be suspect/

    You DO have the right to feel that way. First, I don't think it's very nice to date your best friend's ex but that's my opinion. What I think everyone can agree on however is that she should have asked you if you were okay with it since you're obviously still trying to cope with the breakup and NOT go behind your back. I'd feel betrayed and hurt if my so called best friend had chosen a guy over our friendship.

    you have a right to be angry and upset. She wouldn't be any friend of mine now. It's happened to me too

    Nope for me that's the worst thing a friend could do specially if it was in such a short space of time and she doesn't even bother to tell you or ask if you'd be okay with it. Clearly it's not all her fault as he is with her too and didn't bother tellin you either. I jus wouldn't speak to either of them!

    It's not even the fact that she's dating your ex, if the fact that she's dating him just a month after he ended a 3 year relationship with you
