Re dating your ex
"Dating with the goal of finding a new partner when you have unresolved feelings is selfish," she explains.Not exactly the healthiest relationship dynamic Julie Spira, dating expert and digital matchmaker, says dating others to "rebuild self-esteem" is only a short-term solution for one party.Craving the touch of their bare skin is fine when they’re having a shower before jumping into bed with you.It’s not when you know someone else is going to enjoy that touch tonight.
It’s not when you know they’re going to someone else’s home.
I had no reason to assume he was hung up on his ex.
He very plainly said that he was over her; they simply weren't compatible.
"There's typically a crossover time between when you're fully over your ex and when you start dating again," Spira says.
If you find you're still in love with your ex, end things ethically.
"That ice may be filled with anger, or, on the opposite side it, could be filled with a romantic ideal made up of the good moments of your relationships - but totally unrealistic." Be upfront with any new potential partners, and wade in slowly Sometimes, you'll thaw the ice and see your relationship wasn't all you hoped it would be - that's when it's time to move on and think about meeting someone new.
