Ex is dating
Your ex broke up with you and left you heartbroken.
And while you are still trying to understand what happened and pick up the shattered pieces of your life, your ex has started another relationship. Your ex seems happy and their new relationship seems to be going perfectly.
In fact, if the latter is someone your ex knew even while you were together, you may even feel that they had been meeting each other behind your back.
Seeing your ex with someone new is always going to be weird, no matter how shark-infested your island waters, or how long you’ve left them stranded.
Here’s how to deal with the weirdness and get back to the mainland, because you have far more important things to do than worry about who your ex is smooching.
You might feel as though the relationship meant nothing for your ex and that they never even really loved you. What for your ex may be an adequate period of mourning the end of a relationship, might seem too short for you and the return to dating on part of your ex too soon.
Accept that it is natural for you to feel so sad and even cheated at watching your ex move on to another partner.
But when your mind starts wondering whether or not it’s a rebound, you can drive yourself crazy analyzing their behavior and obsessing over every little detail about their new relationship.
