Post can i ask out my friend's recently-ex bf (also my friend)

okay, my good friend recently broke up (mutually) with his girlfriend (also a good friend of mine). this was, oh, a week ago. nobody ever thought it would last as long as it did (6 months) b/c she was constantly getting annoyed with him and hed take all her crap and bring her presents and stuff. some of us even knew about this other guy she liked during her relationship. well, neither was obviously upset by the breakup. problem: i like him. i always have. i know he liked me in middleschool and way into highschool. should i go after him? is that inappropriate? i want to go to our senior ball together as friends. should i ask him or get one of our friends to suggest to him he should ask me? possible wreck of a situation here!!

Thumbs down

If you value either one's friendship at all, you need to back off.

If they were together for 6months, there are some underlying feelings there, whether its admitted or not.

If he is interested in you, he will approach you - at that time, you can feel out your girl friend's response.

I would let him date a couple of girls before going out with him to let feelings die down. There are too many other fish in the sea and a relationship with him, at best, would make things awkward.
