Q: I broke up with my boyfriend and now he is dating my friend! Even though he is dating my friend, he still stares at me when I’m doing something (I know this because my friend told me). Does he still like me? If not why does he keep on staring at me?

Even though it may feel weird for your ex boyfriend to be dating your friend, you have to remember that once you break up with someone, they are free to care about whomever they wish. I don’t mean that to sound harsh, but I’d hate for you to feel resentful toward him or your friend when neither of them is breaking any “rules” by liking each other.

Unfortunately it’s impossible to know what a guy is really thinking when he stares at a girl. He could be reminiscing about his time with you, or it might mean absolutely nothing at all. But especially since this is only something that someone else has told you, I wouldn’t think about it too much or let it affect you.

Your questions make me wonder, though, sis–do you still have feelings for you ex-boyfriend? If you do, you’re going to have to put them behind you for now. You broke up with him and he is with someone else. Out of respect for both of them, give them space and see what happens down the road. In the meantime, being single is a great opportunity to focus on an even more important relationship. I don’t know if you have a relationship with God, or what that looks like for you, but let me tell ya–He’s crazy about you, sis (way more than any guy could be) and He wants you to get to know Him too!
