So your ex is smart just like you and is not used to being single. Don't apologize thinking it's YOU caused this break-up to happen, and if you did do something to sabotage the relationship, don't apologize more than once. That is what to do if your ex is seeing someone else.Stop making promises that you'll change or mold yourself into someone that you're not simply to get your ex back. And if you find yourself at the point where you want to beg, take a deep breath then invest in my book .You will need to follow one or all of the following steps to ask her out. You will have to find out if she is actually serious about the guy she is dating or not. The easiest way to find out is to ask directly “Do you have a boyfriend? ” If she says she doesn’t have a boyfriend, or that she is single, just ask her out normally.Once you have clarified her dating situation, you might be able to analyze asking her out in a more objective way. Just because she’s gone on a few dates with someone doesn’t mean she can’t go on a date with someone else.If she is ready to ‘cheat’ on her boyfriend with you, you might just be next.You might be okay with this in the beginning but trust me; you are just digging a grave for your own relationship.
For many people, this marks a new and painful phase of a break-up.
Your ex is seeing someone NOT because he or she is in love with someone else already but because he or she is trying to get over you. It's not rocket science - the easiest way to get over someone is to date someone else. Don't be aggressive and flip out at your ex for being insensitive.
This is the case also if he or she is living somewhere else. Don't decide that the only way he or she can be dating someone else is because your ex was obviously cheating.
Yup, breaking up doesn’t always mean the relationship is finished.
It’s not completely over until , as in, you’ve adjusted and moved on. Related to a past blog post “Coping with Distress and Agony After a Break-up” I recently received a comment that illustrates this situation.
