3 Ways To Deal When Your Ex Starts Dating Someone New Right After You Breakup | Thought Catalog
A friend once told me his test of whether he's over an ex is whether it would bother him if they were dating someone else. Under that logic, I've never gotten over anyone in my life. Months and sometimes years after a relationship, my heart rate still accelerates when I see an ex is dating someone new on Facebook. Over a year after I ended one relationship, I found some photos on Facebook of my ex with a woman I didn't recognize. It was like we were still together and he cheated. I wasn't entitled to feel this way — I broke up with him! After I last spoke to another fling I never even officially dated, I made sure to unfollow him on Facebook so I didn't have a similar experience.
Ex Dating Someone New?
The relationship is over and done. Then it hits you like a ton of bricks. You hear that your ex has a new love interest. While healing is a process, you have the power to move on even when your ex already has.
The next thing that happens after you break up with someone — this is after the tears, the drama, the denial, the anger, the acceptance, maybe a sneaky shag, more anger, more acceptance and then closure — is moving on. Some people start dating to force themselves to move on, some to bury the pain and yes, some are just ready to jump back in the saddle. You should be focusing on yourself and your own future rather than worrying about his. If you have had the chance to lick your wounds, heal, learn and move on, you stand a better chance of happiness. There must be time to heal.
