So I was dating this guy for about a year and a half, but I broke up with him like 5 weeks ago. He was one of my best friends before we started dating and we decided to stay friends. But it turns out that he is a little bitter because I broke up with him a feel before his birthday (which was the last thing on my mind at the time). I apologized and everything about that... Anyway long story short, I started hanging out with another guy recently and he just asked me out and I said yes... How do I go about this without hurting my ex? Thanks so much!

Tha'ts the problem with trying to stay friends. He'll probably be really hurt that you have a new guy after only a month...
There's no way to soften the blow for him. I'd drop all contact with him, just to avoid having to hear about his hurt feelings. If the birthday upset him so much, imagine what having a new boyfriend will do.
See if he contacts you after a while. it's posible that, after some time has passed, he will be able to be a friend again without being jealous of other guys. But not now...crop all contact for now.0
