Coping with ex wife dating

A lot of my friends have confessed they've felt the same way, especially when they're forced to find out through social media.

Discomfort with an ex publicly pairing up again is also acknowledged in pop culture; after Marnie breaks up with Charlie on , she obsesses over the other woman she sees in his Facebook photos."Most people don't want to feel expendable, rejected, or out of control," sex and relationships therapist Cathy Beaton tells Bustle.

Your ex will never experience with this new person exactly what they did with you.

If your ex moved on before you did, you might feel as if they won or wonder why you didn't find someone else first.

Your ex just happened to stumble upon someone else before you did. When my ex first got a new girlfriend, I feared that it endangered the friendship we formed post-breakup.A friend once told me his test of whether he's over an ex is whether it would bother him if they were dating someone else.Under that logic, I've never gotten over anyone in my life. After I last spoke to another fling I never even officially dated, I made sure to unfollow him on Facebook so I didn't have a similar experience.That way, he was able to better handle whatever surprise she tossed his way.I'm madly in love with my boyfriend and and love being with him.
