Would you date a friend’s ex-husband? How are you?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma is a bit complicated. It’s from Susan, and it’s about dating a friend’s ex. That’s what Suzanne wrote.

I have a dilemma Jaime. I listen every day and most of the time I hear good advice for the dilemmas you face, so I hope it will be the same for me. I have a great group of friends. We have been friends for over 20 years. I don’t want this to be a long story so I’ll cut to the dilemma part. A friend of mine, Jackie was married to a guy Brad. They divorced about ten years ago. Jackie is happily remarried. I myself am divorced. Recently Brad started hanging out at the places we go. Brad and I always go together, we’ve always enjoyed each other’s company. Well, here’s the dilemma. Brad and I have been dating for about a month. I hadn’t told Jackie because at first I thought it was just two old friends catching up, but now we both feel like moving forward with the relationship to see where she goes. I don’t want to do anything behind Jackie’s back, but I don’t want to hurt her either. Should I tell him right away? I really don’t know what she’ll think about it and I don’t want to ruin our friendship. I hope some of this really great advice I hear all the time during your dilemmas Jaime. I will listen. Thanks.

Well, it’s hard, because I understand that I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but I think you need to confess and tell your friend the truth. Honesty, at least for me, is the way to go when it comes to important things.

But what do you think? Let’s help Susan. Should she tell Jackie? Should she completely break up with Brad? What do you think? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
