Losing a Friend
I've been dating the ex-husband of my (former) best friend. They just got divorced about a month ago. Their divorce was pretty nasty, with legal quarrels over money, property, and child custody. There is a lot of anger that still exists between them.
When my friend learned that I was dating her ex, she became unglued. She feels like I'm doing her wrong. I reminded her that since they are done as a couple, she shouldn't feel that way. I've always liked her husband, thought he was gorgeous, and I've known him for as long as I've known her (8 years). I flirted with him in the past (nothing major), but never acted on it. Now I'm getting my chance to have him to myself. It's still too early, but I'd like to marry him. I will then be the step mother to my (former) best friend's kids.
My friend refuses to answer my calls or texts. I think our friendship is done, which is too bad. I had a great time doing things with her over the years. I hope she can still be friends with me, but she needs to meet me half way. Her ex loves me, and I love him. He's also a great f*** and we've been going at it like we're 18 again. I haven't felt this alive in years.
