Dear Roe,

I’ve started going out with my friend’s ex-boyfriend and she’s incredibly angry and I don’t know what to do. We’re all late 20s and have known each other since college. My friend and this man went out for about a year when they were about 19. My friend moved abroad three years ago but we still keep in touch a bit on social media, and we try to meet up when she comes home a couple of times a year.
