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. Months and sometimes years after a relationship, my heart rate still accelerates when I see an ex is dating someone new on Facebook. Over a year after I ended one relationship, I found some photos on Facebook of my ex with a woman I didn't recognize. It was like we were still together and he cheated. I wasn't entitled to feel this way - I broke up with him!
I have taught you about how being the Ungettable Girl and how stealing her shine will help to win him back. Lastly, we talked about always keeping your options open and moving forward with your life by practicing the moving on without moving on approach.

Me and my ex were classmates and really good friends. We have been close for last two years. So I was always in a doubt and wanted to change him so that my parents can accept. It took a lot of time to convince my family about him.
One of the scariest things for my readers is the thought that their ex-boyfriend might meet someone new. For some of you that may have already happened and now you want to know how you can go about winning him back before it's too late. There are four different scenarios you might be dealing with when there is another woman on the scene. Jun 28, My ex is dating someone else already and it hurts. If you see your ex with someone new and this causes you pain, take my words of advice seriously. Go no contact with your ex without delay. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Your ex needs to experience life without you and get hurt before he or she will even think about coming back to you. You should know that the presence of someone new in your ex's life is not synonymous with the end of your attempt at getting back simplybeyondexpectations.com truth thanks to my coaching sessions, I've learned that this is definitely not a determining factor in whether or not you're going to get your ex back!
It was a constant pressure for both of us, we were always in a doubt that we may not end up together for other circumstances though we had a great connection and so, this relation was being toxic. Since last December, he was really down about his business and family matters, and this idea of getting married was creating an extra pressure on him.
Meanwhile my family was emotionally forcing me to go for an arranged marriage. It was a messy situation and we both were exhausted.
How to get your ex back (when they’re dating others) — Susan Winter
Sometimes I also discussed about moving on, but we never did. Then in the last week of January we had a fight and I could sense something was off. I could feel he was hiding something. Then eventually I became normal, but he did not.
Suddenly he told me, we should part our ways. I thought after a few days everything would be alright and we would be together again. We were in contact. He was saying he is going through a tough situation, and needs some space. His behaviour towards me changed completely. I begged and pleaded. Apologized a many times.
Assured him that my family is convinced, there is no uncertainity now, he may take time to settle down. He told me to give this a time. And then three weeks later, in March, he confessed that he has moved on with someone else, and he was cheating on me.
My ex is dating someone else: How do I make them come back? Now that you know your ex has to play up the situation in order to adhere to what society (and their loved ones) expect of them, you will have to work on making them want to come back, but proving that you are the ideal person for them. "My ex started dating someone else right away!" is often said by cracking voice and followed by crying. You have likely come to this post because you are asking if you still have a chance of getting your ex back if they are seeing or dating someone during no contact. Apr 03, If you're dating someone new, because you thought you were over your ex, but you suddenly discover you might have ended the right relationship, you may want .
He no longer has any feelings for me. Surprisingly, I took it calmly at first then cried and requested him to give our relationship another chance. Next day we met again and we both open up.
He told me that he wants to give it another chance, but he is way too involved with his new girlfriend. Then he stopped contacting me. After 5 days of waiting I gave him a letter writing that, I am stepping out so that we both can move on. I planned to start NC, but from the very next day, he started knocking me daily just to ask if I am going to office.
I responded casually like nothing happened. I deactivated Facebook, to avoid recent corona ates. Three days ago, he called me to ask what happened to my acc. Again I talked like nothing happened. Then at night he texted me that he is sorry. No explanation, nothing, only sorry. Next day I called him, he told me to move on, not to wait for him. Now I am really confused which approach will work in this case. I really miss him. Now I know, how small happy moments make us happy and I ignored those for long.
Everyday seems like a long nightmare. I know it will be tough but I want him back. As he moved on, when I stopped talking, I am afraid to go for a NC. He is too introvert and stubborn. I am afraid it will backfire. Hi Linda, NC will not backfire with an introvert you will find that he is slower at replying when you enter the texting phase.
Which is also fine as we want slow and steady work. Work your Holy Trinity during your NC and focus on yourself and not your ex so that when you reach out your ex realises that you have been doing just fine without him around.
My ex and I did a fwb gig for a few months with one instance of him asking for me back and me dropping the ball with that and playing games cringey as hell, right?
Thoughts and advice welcome! Hi Bardcore, so you answered yourself really! Work on yourself and follow the being there method after a No Contact period. It does sound as if you are a strong person to deal with this so use the information and let me know how you get on! My ex and me dated for about one year. But we had many fights since he did not want me to meet my other ex boyfriend who is also my best friend.
Then we had a fight in last December. After that, he tried to talk to me nicely, warmly and sweetly. I also gave good feedback to him and told that i missed him sometimes.
What Should You Do When Your Ex Starts Dating Someone During No Contact?
It took 2 months for me and him not to contact usually. During that time, he still argued about my ex boyfriend story. One day, he did not contact me in 1 week. After that week, i contacted him back and knew that he was seeing another girl. That girl used to have relationship with him but she decided not to go with him since she had boyfriend that time.
It meant she used to run after 2 horses. Last year, she broke up and has started flirting and approaching my ex until now. She said that she would compensate for her last cheating. I now meet him once a week. He tells that he still loves me but he does not want to get back due to him sadness and he is now seeing that girl. Please give me some advice here!!!! Hi Kathy if he is seeing someone else and is telling you that he loves you, then you need to look at the actions he is taking rather than his words.
He is being unfaithful to the new person which is also something I would suggest you keep in mind during this time. There is the being there method that we recommend doing when you want an ex back but it does not pass the line of cheating emotionally or physically.
If you have not done so yet you need to complete a No Contact for 45 days for their new relationship to pass the honeymoon phase.
Me and my ex boyfriend were together for 2 years and have been broken up for 1 year now. We split up on the last day of February During our relationship he really became my best friend.
We would talk and text every day. But we always had issues. He worked shifts so would often be at work all night and sleep during the day. Which mean difficulty meeting up.
My ex is dating someone else, are we officially over?
I was constantly rearranging my schedule to meet with him. We did have many adventures together, we loved travel. We had different travel styles so there was always some difficulty. A lot of the time I felt abandoned and wanted to see him more and connect more. But he was busy and sometimes even when he could meet he would just stay at home. So we broke up because we always had the struggle to meet and always had recurring discussions about the same issues.
It was rough. I did no contact for 1 month and then realised we want to be together again. The day after we got back together my grandmother whom I was very close to suddenly passed away. I was devastated. It was a shame because obviously she passed away and also because I had made a lot of progress in that month really working on myself to be better for him and the relationship. When she passed I was devastated. I tried to be strong but obviously I broke down slightly.
I wanted to stay in more and take life one day at a time. In fact, I was exhausted! I had 2 jobs and full time university at the time and this is when it was put to the test. Can he make time for me instead of me moving my schedule. At that time my schedule was not flexible and he struggled to make time when I had it.
It was hear wrenching. I remember the day like it was yesterday. This was two months after we got back together. So he left my flat that night and that was the end of a two year long relationship. Initially I was okay. I still had my studies to finish and was very busy with work. However when my time freed up, with my internship coming to an end and graduation around the corner I really started feeling the lack of him again. I always did during this time and still now, but when I first came out of that busyness the first thing I thought of was seeing him.
We had not talked for a couple of months. Side note. He did tell me several times during our relationship that he feels we have met at the wrong time.
I was poor and a student and he was a couple years older and in a good job. We always had money problems because of this. He said that maybe we will meet later in life and it will work out.
We did actually say this on the day of the break up. That maybe we will meet again later when we are ready and at a place where we both have income and both know where we stand in life. After the initial contact in May I left it again and went travelling in August until end of October. Backpacking around Europe.
I should have used this opportunity to put lots of good pictures up of myself but I was too much enjoying my time travelling.
So the travels came to an end and I decided to give it another shot. I remembered what we had said to one another and felt that I now want what he wants and was ready to move to his city and wait for him to be ready to move in.
I decided to contact his best friend for this quest just because I felt he might be able to tell me if there is a chance still. I was met with an answer that I was not expecting. He was always a man to wish best for the future. I tried to call in an attempt to talk about things. He did not respond well and blocked me. But he did block me.
On everything. I do still have all of his friends on social media and his sister as well. I was so deeply upset.
I felt we were best friends. Today a year after the break up I still miss him terribly and often think of what could have been if I was just a bit more what he wanted. Or what I thought he wanted at least.
I question if what he said was true. That we would find each other later and be together. Will that really happen? The latest events indicate otherwise I suppose.
But you know. I really want him back. I feel sick and depressed without him in my life. Is there any chance? Any strategy? I do live quite far away from where he lives now so the only way he would know about my whereabouts would be through friends telling him what I do on social media. I am thinking of moving back to where I used to live in the UK, just 20 minutes drive from his town.
He wowed to never leave the place. Is this a good idea or no? Should I move somewhere new instead. I miss him every day. We had a strong relationship but a lot of problems. I think now I could be a much better girlfriend.
Much better. Any advice please?
As you broke up a year ago you are going to have to read some articles about how to get an ex back after a long break up. You are going to have to have a way of showing him how great you are doing, most use social media.
So my boyfriend and I were together for a year before dating. We were best friends for years so we had to see. After dating for two months we moved in together. We had lived together for three years till one day he said he was done.
Literally out of the blue. We were talking about trying to have kids. We got dogs together. We had a future. He would try to work things out. He checked out. Recently I moved out about a month ago with just a bag.
He broke up with me. Except all of my things are still in the house. And most evenings we sit in the living room together. I want to work things out because I love him very much and have expressed that a lot. But he keeps giving me mixed signals. Or checking up on me. Recently he had a girl spend the weekend in our be and it was the girl I was never ever supposed to worry about.
I still want him. That hurt a lot but I still want to work things out cause I love him. But it felt like he has betrayed me for four years. In most of these cases, he will try and repair the connection by apologizing for his behavior and asking for your forgiveness. He may even want to be friends at first. They try and compare their ex to the guy they are currently seeing. And I get how it would seem like this is the right way to do this. When looking at it I have to be careful not to compare them to the apartment I live in now.
The standard of living is lower there, which means pricing is much higher and square footage is much lower. So, instead of looking at the two relationships side by side you need to look at the separately first.
Then suss out what it is that even makes you consider why you might not. If you are going by straight facts and you were honest with yourself, you should be able to see this. If your analysis looks like the left column blue then it looks like things are leaning in favor of the relationship you are in now.
They say that if you have a decision to make and you are having a hard time making it that you should flip a coin because in that moment, when the coin is in the air.
So if I were to hand you a quarter right now, tell you to flip it to decide, and whatever it landed on, you were stuck with whatever it lands on. Give a coin to someone else, a friend or someone who will hold you accountable. Tell them to flip it.
If he left you to chase someone else, then take into account that he lost interest in your relationship at some point. It really does change the way that you see yourself. If someone thinks they can just walk in and out of your life, you end up feeling like a bit of a doormat. If you want to know more about that. If you do decide to get back with him, you should definitely tell him to figure out what he wants as well. If that lines up with what you want, then go for it.
If not be honest with him. Guys that actually care are hare to find. If he is just using you for favors, connections, or Netflix accounts.
The same goes for someone who thoroughly enjoys treating you like crap. No one deserves that. Walk away and find better. And if the guy that you are with is better then stay with him! Your email address will not be published.

I ended it because I was fed up with feeling like I was competing for his attention and affection with women on social media and on dating sites.
In May of I took a break, by July we had agreed to work on things and I moved in. By September we promised to be open and to focus on us. In November while on our vacation I found out he did not keep his end of the promise and was talking to multiple women and had a text-virtual relationship with one woman who he sent pictures and video to back and fourth.
He ended up meeting her face to face in September and that is because she told me, she also said it was never a physical encounter. I was fed up with it, I know it was more of a type of obsessive mental issue but I was the one that was constantly being hurt by the selfish actions.
I ended it halfway through our vacation and have worked on my healing. For a few days now I have received countless texts, emails and voice messages asking for forgiveness, that he truly loves me and knows he took me, my love and my time for granted and wants to make it up to me.
That his few sessions of therapy have made him realize the mistakes he made and that he needs me to be his backbone and wants to work on US. That he was blinded by his obsession and needs a chance to amend things and make it right. Why now? Why after I left do all these feelings come out of him?
He wants me back and want a chance. Does the ex deserve a chance when he hurt and disrespected me as much as he did or do I continue to work on moving on and give the friend the opportunity?
My ex is dating someone new and i want him back
I do feel a connection to the friend, but the history and the good memories of the Ex are there too. Hey Lucia, I am sorry but only you can decide that for yourself! I hope you find happiness in who ever you choose to be with and let me know how it works out. My ex broke up with me for 5months now I truly loved him because he treated me just like I wanted to be treated while we were together.
After 5months I started dating this new guy who loves me so much and his really nice to me and already introduced me to his family which my ex never did.
Hi Sandra, this sounds like grass is greener, and it seems that he has been emotionally cheating at the least. I would consider how you would feel if you lost the NEW guy.
IF you want your ex back then you need to be honest with your current partner before doing anything.
I would also question why he is coming back now, has the other woman left him or did he leave her? And well lately my boyfriend has been distance from me.
I was dating my ex on April 18 and we were doing good until we lasted like 4 days which was on tuesday and its a long story why we broke up and then i got sad and mad at my self and i went to the bathroom and cried. So I did and went to my room and acted like nothing happened.
I blocked my ex on Instagram and then i felt a guilty feeling. Then later on i decided to unblock him and then i saw his bio and it had S and a ring and i knew that ment he was dating someone else right after me.
I felt awful and i cried in the inside. I kept asking questions to my self.
The next day i unblocked him that hopefully he would want me back and that he would breakup with her. But it never happened and i almost texted him how sorry i was and what i did to him but i didnt. After that confrontation, he no longer contacted me. I admit that during that time, i was hoping that he would come back to me.
Me and my ex recently broke up, we were together for two years. I loved her and I was sad to lose her. But I was really fine with it for weeks after the breakup. Which is totally fine. The dates did help take my mind off of my ex. So that was good.
I made the mistake of looking her up on FB and it just brought on all this overwhelming anxiety. I reached out to her only to find out that she had started seeing somebody almost immediately after our relationship ended and that was just a total punch to the gut to hear that.
And that has helped. The pain cuts really deep.
After 5months I started dating this new guy who loves me so much and his really nice to me and already introduced me to his family which my ex never did. and we plan on getting married he hides nothing from me and tells me all I need to know but now my ex is back asking for my forgiveness and wants to get back together all this while i still hv.
But regardless, the pain is a lot to bear. I do miss her, but it is absolutely time for me to focus my energy on moving on. Anyway, I appreciate others reaching out on here. Stay strong, people! I just experienced my second breakup with my girlfriend of almost 3 years. In that time, we rekindled and accidentally had one bad night where my ex then met someone on a dating site. We had our discussions over that next month and eventually got back together, but my trust was really broken again complicated, but paraphrased.
I broke about every rule on this site, primarily because she was so confused as to what she wanted I had no idea what to do. It hurt like hell.
When i was at my strongest, she came back to the city 1 year later. I tried to avoid contact with her but being in the same group of friends, it was hardly possible. We started talking after that and i started falling for her again. When i confronted her with my feelings, she told me that its a dead end and being friends is the only thing she wants. A month later, again we were at a party and she got drunk and came on to me again, told me how much she misses me and we hooked up.
She denied everything the next day as she did not remember anything. I tried to win her back again but as it turned out the result was the same. Now she has started dating a guy she works with and they have been friends for over 6 years.
So that is not casual at all. I really thought for a long time that she is the one. I have no clue where i am headed. So I would say you should really reflect on the section that mentions how people are selfish. Build respect not only for yourself, but to also instill some form of respect in her too. She may think that you will always cave when she needs you and thinks no form of commitment is necessary to receive the benefits of a relationship.
Make her come to you next time. Unfortunately as with all breakups, new interests really bring complexity. Not sure if anyone will read this, but I have it on my mind right now. During that time, I decided I did not want to get back together with him and deleted him off my social media and his phone number. Every single memory was completely wiped, I still kept some picture of big social events though. Anyways, we had dated for 2 years and we were apart of the same team and had the same friend groups.
We were also so closw, we did everything together. We went on trips together, parties and sleepovers. Met his family and his extended family, I went to their parties and bonded with his siblings and cousins. They were the best people I have ever met even to this day. However, we broke up right before our 2 year mark and he began dating someone else that very same week. As we can see, he really thought I would never find out that he began seeing someone else right afterwards lmao.
Anyways, it hurt for a long time and to be honest it still stings to be tossed to the side like that. It was very embarrassing to me and it was incredibly awkward with our mutal friends, because it was all so jarring. Just yesterday though, his new partner requested to follow me on instagram and I knew it was her, because I checked her profile and she had recently posted pictures of him.
It sent me back to all the initial emotions I had during the break up. I had anxiety, my hands began shaking and I almost teared up. I did some snooping because her instagram was public and realized we had no mutals friends whatsoever and she had just started using her platform again after a year.
They were such recent pictures that I believe she had just began using it again and the first thing she did was to post a selfie, then a separate post of him and then follow me. Especially for how long there was no contact and she is just now trying to discover who I am. After 1 to 2 months of the break up.
When I came back, she had left during that time. Later on, she did return, but the room had gotten crowded with people who showed up during that time and my ex and her kept their distance from one another. My ex had his face glued to his phone and she was talking to someone, but seemed to ignore each other. This was also the first time I even realized he began dating someone lol.
Why now are you trying to follow me? Why would you even want to follow his ex in the first place? Because, why do feel the need to show off to me? Especially if my ex and I have had no interaction with each other ever since we broke up.
What do you guys think about this whole situation?
