During my First serious relationship I had similar temptations, but as I dated more and more I grew out of it. You need to stop following her. Why are you following your ex and your ex’s girlfriend? It is not healthy at all. If you can’t be friends with your ex block him. Yes they went on similar trips together maybe because he wants to take her there? My ex is my FI’s close friends. My ex is actually the one whom introduced us online. When my ex and I fell apart I dated my Fiance and got engaged. We went to many actually all places that my ex and I went and I posted it on fb. Why because I am in love and happy. My ex is my fb. who cares? We parted ways on a neutral term and I didn’t cheat on him. I did him the favor eventually deleted him off my social media. I want to celebrate my happiness and share it with everyone, my friends. I care less about my ex. hint ex. I would not stop posting to make him feel better. I only care about my Fiance.
There are only so many dating places one could go. Just because he said he loves you at this one location dose it mean he can never go back to it with someone else he cares about? They are together now no matter what the reason is, be happy for them cheer them on and leave.
He loved you and he likes her now. You did the best thing you could by breaking up with him. Start clean and move on. You left him for a reason that should be the focus. Who cares whom he date or not? If it helps, with my first ex whom i dated since high school and lived together for 3 years, every time I thought about him I went back to this chart I made. It listed all the good things and all the bad things about him. The bad stuff on there reminds me to move onHe was extremely mainpulative too. When we go on break he would constantly post photographs with other girls and hotel check ins to bother me, but I learned to delete him. . You care clearly not 100% over him, block him ( unless you have kids), and just move on. Go try next things go on few speed date. Evaluate what you want from life and what you learned from the pervious relationship 🙂
Ex only truly becomes ex when you have no feeling towards them at all. Right now you need to focus on your life not his current’ gf’s instant gram.
It is hard I know. I broke up with my first ex during my depression too. I got diagnosed with depression even had suicidal attempts during college because my mother was battling with breast/brain cancer, she is the only close relative i have left. With school pressure to keep up perfect GPA and blancing my toxic relationship eventually I had a meltdown. It is hard but what got me better was finding a hobby. I started to play video games alot and it became therapeutic for me. I cut my ex off completetly 100% It will get better but your first step is to delete him and her off. Cut all ties to them, phone number, email and just focus on your life. It is hard because you knew him for so long but you have to do it. This quote helped me through my darkest time.
“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”
