What if your metamour was someone that you were good friends with before your partner started dating them?

If I were already friends with them, I'd put in quite rigid boundaries when they initially started dating about my role in their relationship, which would basically be me stating that I don't have one. I'd also state that the normal way that my partner might discuss his relationship issues, and my friend might discuss their relationship issues with me is not an option. They'd have to get that from someone else.

That is exactlywhat I would do as well
