Friend's Ex

My friend broke up with his girl and I had always liked her. I asked him if he would be cool with me asking her out, and he said it was fine. She and I dated about three times, but it was so awkward. It was like he was there on the dates with us. We never could shake the feeling. I learned to not date your friend's ex, even if everyone is fine with it. It's just not going to work.
