Most Helpful Girl
Okay, if he's your friends ex and there was a good reason they broke up ie. he mistreated her, manipulated her etc. then it's probably a good idea to stay away from him. Refocus your attention on to things you enjoy doing and give yourself a project/goal of some sort. Feelings change all the time and after you've spent a certain amount of time away from him, you'll realise you start to feel like yourself again. Whatever you do *don't* shut yourself away from other people. Hang out with friends you trust or join a group of something you enjoy where you have a chance to make new ones.
BUT if he and your friend *didn't* break up because of anything bad and you want to date him and he wants to date you, go for it. Like I said, feelings will change over time and if your friend has time to get over him and realises you still care about her, she'll get over it. It's never a good idea to chase someone elses guy or to allow a guy in a relationship to chase you but if they're not in a relationship, they're not in a relationship. I hope things work out for you.1
