So Your Ex Has Someone New -You Can Still Get Your Ex Back!
Did your boyfriend or girlfriend decide out of the blue to end your relationship? If so, you are probably even
more worried if you suspect that your ex has moved on and is now dating someone new.
You need to ask yourself if you are basing your fear on facts or if what you have are just suspicions that
developed from reading your ex's updates on his or her Facebook account. For all you know, you may not have
anything to worry about.
After a breakup, you are likely to have emotions that are somewhat out of control. It is so much easier to make
yourself panic when you consider what could be going on. Don’t panic unless you know the truth. In fact, don't read
your ex's Facebook status updates!
Even if you find out from mutual friends that your ex has started dating someone new, you should not get too
upset. There are several reasons that your ex’s decision to date someone is not as bad as you think:
1. Your ex and you are connected at a deep level if you had a relationship that was long lasting. Just because
your ex broke up with you and he or she is dating again does not mean that your ex has wiped your memory from his
or her mind.
2. The reason your ex started dating is probably so he or she can deal with the suffering he or she feels after
breakup. Your ex may be having a rebound relationship, especially if he or she began dating very quickly. If your
ex has some strong feelings after breaking up with you, that means that your ex still cares.
3. A rebound relationship is not at all likely to be long term. You can pretty much guarantee that your ex will
be out of the rebound relationship soon. In all likelihood, your ex started dating someone else only to make
himself or herself feel better. Your ex may not really be into the new relationship.
So what should you do? The best thing to do is pretend that your ex dating again is no big deal to you. Show
your ex that it does not bother you at all. Your ex is probably hoping you will react to what he or she is doing.
If you don't react, your ex is going to be more likely to develop a renewed interest in you again.
Should you encounter the person your ex is in a new relationship with, be polite and friendly. When you act in a
mature way, your ex will start to see you as someone that he or she wants to be with again and reconsider the
breakup. Work on staying calm and being patient.
