If you were put in a situation like this, how would you handle it?
Over the weekend, you were completely taken aback when your ex-boyfriend, who you dated for four years and still love, called to wish you a happy Valentine's Day. Since Saturday, you've been talking on the phone daily, and it feels like you've slipped right back into your old ways. When you told your best friend that he reached out to you, she immediately gave you a piece of her mind. While you were aware that your tumultuous relationship affected your friends too, you didn't know just how much they despised him for you.
You discovered through your long conversations that he's single, just like you, and before talking to your friend about him, you were entertaining the idea of getting back together. Knowing that she is against it makes matters incredibly complicated, and you're torn — you don't know if you should trust her, an outsider looking out for your best intentions, or your own heart. It feels like a lose/lose, so tell me, how would you handle this?
