When you come to know that your ex is dating someone else, it crashes all your hopes of being together one day. It is tough if you are still hurting from the break up, but you need to wake up and look at things with right perspective. The following will sort out your confusion, read on.
Your ex may be trying to make you jealous
Your ex may be dating someone but their feelings for you have not completely gone. They might be dating on rebound but if they are still in touch with you, it could mean that they do not want to remove themselves from your life.
You can give him/her benefit of doubt
In the above scenario you can give your ex a chance; if that’s what you want. You know them well; slowly you can start renewing contact with your ex and see how it works. If it works out fine; if not at least you tried and now you know that you can move on.
Leave your ex for some time
Being with other person will give your ex a new experience and may be it will help him sort out his/her feelings. Your ex may or may not come back to you. You need to protect yourself and stay away, this way your ex may realize that they have lost you..
Look at things in perspective
You have to consider the fact that your ex may be using you, maybe he is still friends with you with the hope that if things do not work out in the new relationship, they can always come back to you. Don’t let them take you for granted and take a stand, if you want your ex back and not the other way round.
The fact that you broke up and your ex has moved on and is dating someone else should tell you about your ex’s feelings for you. If your ex is talking to you, then ask yourself why he/she is dating the other person. You should not let you ex hurt you or the other person’s feelings.
Do not waste your time or feelings on your ex
You have two options, confront your ex and ask him/her to come clean about their feelings so that there is no ambiguity about it. Or take a bold stand; be strong to cut all ties with the ex as you cannot rely on them.
He/she is playing with you
If your ex was honest about their feelings they would not be dating someone else, so it is better to move on to save yourself the pain.
