Ex girlfriend dating someone else
Hi Guys, Just want to ask if anyone of you has been through a similar incident and how you coped with it? I was in a relationship with my girlfriend for 3 years before this, and were pretty much your average couple. I wouldn't claim to have a perfect relationship and we did have our disagreements and fights from time to time.However, we always made it work up till now and I feel that we did have something special with each other.Because it can take months or even years to recover from a breakup, she may have not had the chance to process all of her feelings toward you, says licensed social worker David Braucher in the Psychology Today article “Why Can’t I Get Over My Ex?” Although she may not be interested in getting back together, the thought of you with someone else may evoke jealousy, anger or remorse.
One reason your ex may care if you are dating is because he still holds onto feelings for you.These concerns may not be motivated by jealousy but by sincere worries that you are dating someone who is not a good fit for you or is not treating you with respect.If she has talked about her worries in terms of whether you seem happy and content, it may be worth listening to your ex and considering whether her feelings are valid and based on friendly concern and thus, something to keep in mind as you proceed in your new relationship.Since these can be the signs of an abusive dynamic, minimizing contact with a controlling ex may be the best option for both you and your new dating partner, according to the article "Domestic Violence and Abuse" from the nonprofit Help Guide.If you maintain a friendship with your ex, she may be concerned about your new choice of dating partners.
