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.
Do you think this is accurate? What do you do when your ex starts dating someone new? Have you ever been in this position? Tell me in the comments.
