I'm getting married in a little over two months, and though this is a happy, exciting time in my life, there's a bittersweetness. It started when I moved to New York a year and a half ago to be with my boyfriend. Up until then, our relationship had been long-distance; he was in Manhattan, and I was in Chicago. Through daily phone calls and frequent trips back and forth, we fell in love while still maintaining solo lives in our respective cities. It was a unique experience to be in a fully committed relationship, but continue living the same single-girl life I'd known since my last serious relationship (minus all the unsuccessful dating, of course).

Poll: Would You Date Your Friend's Ex-Boyfriend?: Never. That goes against the basic rules of friendship. Maybe. It depends on how long they were dating and who broke it off. Why not? All's fair in love and war. Yes, as long as she was OK with it. If she wasn't I wouldn't bother dating him.
