My ex and I have been broken up with for a month now. He wants to be friends so badly and wants me in his life for some reason. I gave in like the dumbass I am, and agreed to be friends with him. However, he has moved on to his new girl. Is there any way at all to escape this friend zone with him? Is being friends with him a good thing if I want him back? If you were in this position, what would make you see one of your friends as a potential date... even if you are in a happy relationship?
