I was approached by a French study-abroad student in New York in the park to help him with directions. I told him I genuinely don't know. But he came back ten minutes later asking me for a different set of directions and taking my phone number in case he got lost on the way. Well he texted me that night and we spoke through texts for a week before our date which was wonderful. He wants to see me again. My problem is: I think he is out of my league.
And that someone might just be your best friend, the person who has been there all along. Whether or not you have already thought of them in a romantic way, it is worth considering whether there is more to your relationship than you originally thought. Your hugs linger, you find yourself playing with your hair when you talk to them, and you regularly break the touch barrier.

Understand your friend is probably going to be upset and it might take its toll on your friendship for a while, but if you two are really good friends, they will look beyond the fact that the woman you care about is their ex, see her as the person who makes you happiest, and be happy for you. On a personal level I have a strong enough bond and complete opposite tastes of my best friend so I have never come close to even fantasizing about hooking up with an ex-boyfriend of hers.
