When ex starts dating someone else
Simply put, it’s like inwardly saying that your ex’s annoying quirks are someone else’s problem now!
#5 Don’t make comparisons between you and the new partner.
#2 Realize that your ex moving on before you is okay.
At first, you might think it’s so unfair that your ex has managed to find someone new while you’re still struggling to get over your breakup.
Without you wanting it, Facebook will show you pictures of your ex’s vacation in Bali or your ex’s sweet love posts to the new boyfriend or girlfriend.
Even if you try to resist, there’s always the temptation to have a teeny tiny peek at what your ex is up to.
So if you concentrate on being the first to get over the breakup, you won’t be able to concentrate as much on healing your heart and moving on the healthy way. Just because your ex is doing something that makes him or her happy, doesn’t mean you have to do the same.
That three month rule after a breakup doesn’t apply to everyone.
Some people simply get over their exes in a shorter span of time than others.
So if having a new relationship is what makes your ex happy and focusing on your career is what’s making you happy, stick with your career and quit mimicking what your ex is up to. This may already be something you’ve done when you were still trying to get over the breakup, but keeping that mental tally does come in handy in situations like this.
When you remember why it didn’t work out between the two of you, you’re less likely to be jealous of the person who used to be in your position.
