  • He's an EX for a reason. Be happy with the man you got.

  • Just be there to pick up the pieces because she's on the right track for a train wreck.

  • Let her learn from her own mistakes and problems. Don't get involved.

  • How close you are and how long you have been friends should dictate how involved you should be. Also it depends on her age and why she is no longer with her ex.
    If you haven't been friends long, I would just be there for her. If you are really good friends and have been for a while, then I would be honest with her. Just tell her that you feel that it isn't fair to her or her new boyfriend to be dating since she is still in love with her ex.
    Let her know that you are there for her but as a friend, you feel it's your duty to let her know how you feel. How long has it been since she was with her ex? I've heard that it takes about a month for every year you were with someone to get over them. I think that's true as it took me about a yr to get over my ex and we were together 14 yrs.

    I tend to say/do what I would want my friend to if roles were reversed.

  • She's a grown up. Free to make her own mistakes. Just be there for her if it all blows up.

  • If she asks for advice or for your opinion then give it to her. Otherwise butt out, it's her business what she does.
