When your ex starts dating someone else

Talk more with your family and reach out to friends.Have a girls’ night, start binging a new show or go to the spa.As much as information is power, it is also a demon. Instead: Take a break from social media or do a cleanse.Use the time to unfollow or unfriend those people who may not really be contributing to your happiness.If you know you will have the ultimate urge, maybe discontinuing your strictly social media ‘friendship’ is the next step you need toward complete closure.It doesn’t mean you can’t be civil if you see each other in person.Yes, you might start freaking out when you see your ex with someone new.

Seeing someone you cared for with someone new can be heartbreaking, and it is understandable to be angry or feel some sort of hatred.

Chelsea Hathaway, a senior at Framingham State University, says, "You always hope you will be 'the one' that they always wish they could have back, and once you see they are moving on and dating someone new you realize that part of your life is over." Instead: Get out of the house or dorm every once in a while.

Even just going for a walk or changing your scenery will help. Even if it is a brief text just letting someone know you’re still alive and they don’t have to take care of the litter box for you can be good enough.

Nothing stings more than watching your ex start dating again while you were still making efforts to get them back.

The rejection of breaking up is nothing compared to the overwhelming sense of hopelessness felt once you realize that your ex might very well be gone for good.
