A Love That Shouldn't Be
We started hanging out as friends as we had both met through an ex-boyfriend of mine. He was new to my town and was befriended by my ex. The more the three of us hung out, I realized that he had become attracted to me. My ex and I maintained a friendship, but to my ex, it was more than just friendship. He thought that we would eventually end up back together.
Needless to say, I have also become extremely attracted to this new friend. So much so that there isn't a day that goes by that I do not think of him. We both maintain a respectful friendship because of my ex, but we both know of our attractions to each other. I care for him a lot more than I have ever cared for my ex.
I used to think that people were idiotic to start a relationship with their ex's friend(s), but now I know how it could happen. It happens when you least expect it. The heart does not know of discrimination or rules. I only pray that this is just a passing crush and it will all be over soon.
