When your ex wife starts dating
Second, if your ex is dating someone during no contact, especially if it started right away, it could be the proverbial rebound relationship.
Sometimes people are addicted to the intense feelings of being madly in love. If it is truly Limerence, with its strong pull of an increase in dopamine in the brain (and lots of oxytocin), than it’s likely temporary and could “spend itself broke” faster than a politician.
Instead of comparing yourself to others, look at how much you've grown, and be grateful for what you do have.
If you always want what others have, you will lose your authentic self and you will never have enough." Sarah Schewitz, Psy D is a psychologist with over 10 years of experience helping couples and individuals improve and change their patterns in love and relationships.
It could also linger a bit if your ex is trying to prove to themselves and to others that it’s not a rebound. That shelf life will be shorter if you stay in no contact.
If you don’t stay in no contact long enough, which is probably longer than you are thinking, you are only hurting your chances – a lot.
That pulling away will likely cause the new person (the rebound) to do the wrong things.
The wrong things include being clingy, needy, insecure, and trying to pull your ex closer to them. The bottom line is that if your ex starts dating during no contact, it has great potential to pull your ex back to you.
Just know that everything is happening for your highest and best good, and try to trust in the universe and the grand plan of things.
After you did the right thing following being dumped by going into no contact, your ex has started dating someone else – someone new. That’s what I’m going to discuss in this post and I want you to know that there is still hope and that this is not the worst thing that could have happened. You don’t have to get your ex back immediately in order to get them back. In a Limerence Rebound, your ex is enchanted by the newness and the sparks of someone they don’t know or haven’t been romantic with or dated.
” is often said by cracking voice and followed by crying. As I will explain going forward, your best bet, by far, is still to remain in no contact and that means not reaching out to your ex by text, phone call, social message, smoke signals, letter, or any other form of communication at all if it can be helped (and it can). Your ex jumped into a relationship right away to fill the void left by their relationship with you.
If this is definitely the case, and the only way you can know for sure is if your ex says it to you or to someone else, then you should not seek a restoration of your relationship with this person. Your response to your ex boyfriend or ex girlfriend dating someone else already while you are implementing the no contact rule should be complete poise and strength. By doing so, you show your confidence in yourself and that your ex’s actions do not affect you.
Not only are they attempting to hurt you and to toy with your emotions, but they are using another person in order to do it! Your ex’s response to this will often be intense curiosity, which is a precursor to attraction.
