When Your Ex Moves OnÖAnd You Havenít
By Laura Snyder
You thought breaking up was the hard part. But now you hear your ex is dating Ė or worse, in a nauseatingly happy relationship Ė and suddenly you wonder if there isnít something wrong with you for not being ready for a rebound of your own.
Even if the breakup was your idea, itís natural to feel positively deflated at the news your old flame is lighting someone elseís fire. Hereís how to handle it.
Moviní On Move #1: Quit the Comparisons
It will not help you to speculate whether your new replacement is hotter, smarter, sexier, or cooler than you. At best, the comparathon will sap your self-esteem. At worst, youíre subject to losing sight of why you broke up in the first place. Donít let yourself second guess your decision.
Moviní On Move #2: Stay Away. Far, Far Away
Youíll get over your ex much faster Ė and without totally losing your mind Ė if you can avoid catching a glimpse of him or her getting over you with someone else. So go out of your way to avoid crossing their path (at least for awhile) and tell your friends you donít need to hear about them running into the new happy couple.
Moviní On Move #3: Donít Cave to Humiliation
Itís normal to feel embarrassed when it seems the world is talking about your ex sucking face with someone new. While it feels like the gossip mill must be talking about what a loser you are, and how sorry they feel for you, they really arenít. People who care about you (and who else matters?) are focused on how youíre doing, not who your ex is doing.
Moviní On Move #4: Think Positive
Enough with mourning the loss of Mr or Miss Wrong. Remember this: it just brings you that much closer to Right.
