But the reality is that it’s probably not going to happen like that and it’s a littttttle bit childish.
Does it really matter which one of you starts dating first and does it that he’s dating?
And that makes the new man in her life intolerable!
And if you are, it somehow makes it more difficult to cope.You start Internet stalking their new partner WAY too hard It’s funny how fast a simple “in a relationship” status can devolve into creeping on your ex’s new girlfriend’s sister’s wedding photos. For some reason your brain always tricks you into thinking that you’re in competition with the new person in your ex’s life, which is silly since A) she already has the ex and B) you don’t really want the ex anyways.It’s a slippery slope, and no matter how strong your self-control, eventually you’re gonna end up looking at her profile pictures and the profile pictures of everyone she’s known since 2009. The fix: It’s important to remember that your relationship ended for a reason, and that no matter how similar or different you are to the you-replacement, that isn’t going to change the fact that you and your ex weren’t a good match.However, if you are still in touch with her, especially if there are kids involved, you have to find a way of dealing with the new boyfriend. But if you’re finding it hard to do so, maybe it is not so much about him but about you, and the fact that he’s now taken over what was originally your 'territory'.If you and your ex share custody of your kids, that means running into her boyfriend every time you go over.
