Your ex may be trying to set you up with his friend because he feels like you would have a lot in common with his friend.
He may feel like his friend would be someone that you would really get along with.
Your ex has some history with you, so he knows what you tend to like.
He may feel like his friend can really meet that requirement.
There is also a good chance that his friend has spoken about you to him. In other words, his friend may really like you.
If your ex was friends with this guy when he was dating you, his friend probably liked you then too.
Hence, now that your ex is no longer dating you, his friend may have been asking him for an introduction to you.
This is one of the major reasons why your ex may be trying to set you up with his friend.
Another reason why your ex may be trying to set you up with his friend is because he wants to keep you close and in his life.
He may feel like he wants you around and doesn’t want to simply lose contact with you.
He may want to know what is going on in your life and in some ways live vicariously through his friend if you were both to date. This is a way for him to somehow keep his connection with you alive.
You may be dealing with an ex who isn’t entirely over you for this reason.
He may want you close so that he can hear about you from his friend.
He can reminisce on what it was like to date you through the stories that his friend will tell him about you.
He would be able to learn about more of what you like and how you are.
Your ex’s hope may be that he will get to see you from time to time when his friend brings you to social gatherings.
Your ex may believe that this would be one of his best options to get close to you again.
He may want to see if that chemistry is still there when you are around each other in these social settings.
Unfortunately, this means that he may be using his friend as a pawn just to keep you close.
Again, he may simply want to keep you around because he isn’t willing to completely let go of the relationship or he could actually be hoping that the relationship may be rekindled at some point in the future.
You do need to figure out how you truly feel about your ex.
If you still have feelings for him, you could ask him to have a meeting with you and tell you about his true intentions.
Tell him to be absolutely honest with you.
If your ex tells you that he wants to try being in a relationship again, you will have to decide if it is worth it.
Use your past relationship as your guide.
Don’t simply fall for it just because you want to be with him again.
If your ex tells you that his intention is simply to get you to meet his friend because he believes that there will be a connection, understand that if you choose to date your ex’s friend, your ex will remain in the picture in some capacity.
If you haven’t gotten over your ex or still have issues with him, you may want to avoid dating his friend.
It would only keep reminding you of him.
