Ex starts dating someone new, 2. this new person isn't necessarily like you
Whatever Beyonce may say, nobody's replaceable. It's an entirely different feeling when an ex who abused you finds love again.
You should be focusing on yourself and your own future rather than worrying about his. The fact that you broke up wasn't a failure on your part; things just didn't work out, and they might not work out with this new person either.
And it's not because I wish it was me with him grinning, full tourist, outside some Buddhist temple. When two people break up, there is usually a slight competition to see who becomes happier with their lives first. Ask a trusted friend to change your password for you for about a week or two.
So quit the comparisons, quit the stalking, quit the brooding over the fact that your ex got over you first.
We will have different ways to cope and deal with it, but the outcome will always be the same.
1. "Newer" Does Not Equal "Better"
Your ex will never experience with this new person exactly what they did with you. I have been separated from my husband for a little over a year and he had just started casually dating an aquaintence of mine.
Knowing that your ex is now seeing someone else can be a painful ex start dating someone new. I started ending it with him after 2 months, I admit he said he wanted to continue, yet he never invested.
It's the worst when your ex's new significant other is someone you don't even like. I hope, for her sake, that I did.
There's no website dedicated to assisting us in our pursuit to encourage other women to leave long before we had the chance to. But what would that accomplish? After doing some soul searching, I realized my reasons were different for each person.
And it all starts making sense — he never wanted love. He never made any promises, said that he did not love me even though I did. I woke up from a reverie when he started dating again. But that didn't stop his new profile picture, with an unknown woman next to him.
