   Apology For Dating Your Ex

Dear {Name},

I’m so sorry that I didn’t let you know that I was interested in dating {ex’s name}. I knew you two had broken up, and honestly it didn’t occur to me to consult you before pursuing something with them. When I did think of it later, it just seemed like it would be {weird/awkward/etc.} to reach out.

I realize now that you are hurt and healing. As your friend, I would never intentionally cause you pain.

{Ex’s name} and I have only been out a few times, and it hasn’t gotten serious. If you’d like, I’d be happy to talk with you about {breaking it off/my intent to continue}.

Your friend,
