My ex started dating
Sometimes with the new girl he’s dating, if she begins to see through him or if she makes it clear that she won’t put up with his crap, he will try a lot harder for a bit, but believe me, he will revert to his old ways because that’s who he is. ,” you need to start asking “What is it about me that’s kept me in and invested in this relationsh*t?
You need to stop focusing on the two of them because in doing so, you’re avoiding having to deal with yourself. It doesn’t matter if the pope himself married them and they went onto have 2.5 kids, a white picket fence and a dog named Rover.
I knew deep down that they weren’t right for me and that it would never work, but it completely broke my heart to know that they were dating someone new.
It’s like I didn’t really want them, but I also didn’t want them to be with anyone else. I didn’t think so…It hurts even more when your ex starts dating someone that you know you’re better than, smarter than, prettier than, more educated than, etc.
With some exes, I couldn’t even say for certain that I wanted them back.
You’re convinced he’s changed, you’re plagued with regret, your self esteem is non existent and you don’t know what to believe anymore because this has activated every past pain.
With some of my exes, it almost would have made it easier if they had moved on with someone that I deemed in my mind to be “A Perfect 10.” At least then, my ego could make some sense of it, but when your emotionally unavailable ex starts dating someone that you feel like you’re better than for whatever reason, it’s an impossible pill to digest because it makes no sense to the you that has been drained of all of her dignity, self worth and confidence.“Why her and never me?
” is a question that I’ve asked myself throughout my entire life.
And that question isn’t just applicable to relationships.
