What It’s REALLY Like When Your Ex Gets A New Girlfriend, In GIFs

The only thing worse than seeing your ex-boyfriend out in public when you least expect it is seeing him out in public with his new girlfriend. Ugh. It doesn’t matter how you and your ex broke it off – it’s normal to have feelings of resentment towards his new girlfriend, especially if you’re not over him yet. Then it just hurts.

Of course, you eventually won’t care who your ex is dating and you might even feel happy for him that he’s moved on. But in the beginning, it can be really difficult to get used to the idea of the guy you used to be so close with being that close with another girl who isn’t you. It’s not a great feeling and it can be kind of embarrassing to talk about because you don’t want to look bitter or immature – you want to look like you’re so over it. So, here’s what it’s REALLY like when your ex gets a new girlfriend, explained in GIFs (because what other way is there to explain things?).

 

You and your ex broke up a few months ago and you’ve been pretty miserable.

BUT. You’re finally starting to get over him!

Until you look at his Facebook. Wait… who… is… this… girl…

He’s IN A RELATIONSHIP?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

You sit at your computer and try not to cry as you attempt to look through her entire Facebook.

You frantically text your best friend the news.

She’s like, “Let me see her picture. Ew, you’re so much cuter.”

This doesn’t make you feel any better.

You guys rip on your ex and talk about how you feel really sorry for his new girlfriend, actually.

This still doesn’t make you feel better.

There are a thousand questions running through your mind. How did he get over you so quickly?!

Was he cheating on you?

How is he dating someone new ALREADY when you’re still not over it?!

You need to show him what he’s missing. You post a really hot picture of yourself on Facebook.

You also start commenting on some of his friend’s pages. Let him see you flirting!

Your friends try to distract you. It doesn’t work.

You hit a low point when you beg a friend to add his new GF on Facebook so you can look at all of her pictures.

Now it feels like you’re not over him and you have to start this moving on process from the beginning.\

Wait, did she really comment, “I love you” on his page?!

You hate your ex. You HATE him.

You text or message him something very immature then you’re like…

You feel really bummed out for a while.

But eventually, you realize you’re better off without him.

And it feels pretty great.

    I love this! It made me feel so much better. I tortured myself by checking his Facebook (even though he blocked me) and saw that he was in a relationship 1 1/2 months after we broke up. I continued to watch how in love they were, torturing myself even more with their beautiful pictures. Gave up on it after one month, and decided to check his page AGAIN, they were broken up and of course I thought I could slide my way back into his life again, we talked, had sex a couple times (bad idea) never talked about getting together, but I left the option open for him if he ever changed his mind.. then one week later, he’s BACK with the girl! So the torture began again, but seeing this has made me feel so much better!

    Got nothing else to say but THANK YOU!
    And I am simply amazed at how many people suffering the same situation where her ex of a long term serious relationship gets a new serious girlfriend just one moment after our breakup.

    This was great! At least it made me laugh and smile, thank you for this! I broke up with my boyfriend 8 months ago but we kept talking after we split, I didn’t wanted to get back together because we had a lot or problems, but I realized I wasn’t over him, 2 months ago was the las time we spoke and last week I went thorough his instagram and saw that he already has a new girlfriend and also I saw that he gave to her a gift I bought for him, it made me feel so sad I don’t know what to think.

    I really appreciated this. Nothing hurts more than that moment when your ex (the one you’re not over) posts that they’re “In a Relationship” along with tons of photos of them with the new girlfriend.

    I dated this guy a while back. He was super sweet and charming, the first guy I had dated since my bad breakup. All was going well until I went out of town for my cousin’s wedding. When I returned, he told me ‘this isn’t going to work for me’, which came completely out of the blue. Not even a week later, I found out he was dating his roommate!!! I met her and never had any suspicions. But it hurt to know he might’ve started seeing her when I was out of town, and I was angry for a while. But now I realize he was not the right guy for me, and I’ll find that special someone someday too.

    This is me. My ex has decided to start a new relationship 3 weeks after we broke up. Blerg is the correct emotion :/ 😀

    My life through pictures! This made me smile.
