When you say, “My ex is dating someone else, so we are officially over,” you're If you want to get back together with an ex that's already with someone new. If you have been through it once you are unlikely to want to repeat the experience , especially with the same person, so what do you do if your ex comes back. The person you are now dating is in a losing battle, because it's when you're fully over your ex and when you start dating again," Spira says.
She continues her relationship, in hope that her level of intimacy with Garry will increase and the empty feeling inside her will slowly go away.

She makes pathetic attempts to move the relationship faster hoping that she can gain the same level of intimacy that comes from long-term relationship.
But yet, here she is, rushing a relationship faster than a speeding bullet. The story of Jane demonstrates a classic rebound behavior. Eventually, Jane would breakup with Garry and will try to deal with her breakup pain. She might feel that she is in love with Garry because Garry provides her with comfort and an escape from the pain that she desires deeply.
Garry is a temporary solution that is alleviating the pain, but he is not the cure. But soon enough, she will realize her relationship with Garry for what it is. She is still empty and she can only be at peace with herself when she decides to face the breakup pain. And after they breakup with you, they start a relationship with someone who has no career and no life goals whatsoever.
In some cases, your ex will choose someone who is completely opposite of you in every possible way. This is again, very common rebound behavior. Why Do They Do This? The reason behind this behavior is overcompensation. They think that finding someone completely opposite will probably give them happiness.
Someone who is not even compatible with their life goal. Someone who is not even their type. They are not thinking of a long-term relationship. They are thinking of a short term rebound relationship which will hopefully help them get over the breakup.
One of the most common indicators of this behavior is their social media profile Facebook, twitter etc. Of course, this behavior is subjective.
You know your ex better than anyone, so you are the best judge if they are doing it to rub it in your face or not. One of the examples of this social media behavior that I want to share came from one of my readers. She posted on his Facebook wall whether or not he wants to move to Australia with her next year when she wants to do her PhD. How can she go for some guy who has no plan for his future and could move to another country just like that?
She always said she wanted someone who has some goals in life. First of all, which couple discusses big life decision on their Facebook wall? She clearly posted this message for her ex to see. Which shows she is not over him and is most probably in a rebound. What if they try to hide their relationship? On the other end of the spectrum, there are exes who will try to hide their new relationship from you.
This is fairly uncommon and it could mean two things. After all, you know your ex and your situation better than anyone else. If they are in a rebound, you still have to apply the no contact rule and follow the 5-step plan. He is more handsome than me.
He is a player and knows how to manipulate women. He treats her better than I treated her. But in the end, her relationship with this new guy will depend on the type of connection she develops with him.
If she is mentally and emotionally ready for a new relationship, she might develop a strong connection with her new boyfriend. I am better than him On the flip side, it may look on the surface that you are better than the other guy in every possible way.
Be it health, wealth, status, sexual compatibility or the way you treated her. It still does not make much of a difference. Again, if she has moved on emotionally and mentally; and she builds a strong connection with the new guy; she will forget about you and move on. I want you to think of a TV show with a girl rebelling against her father by dating a douche-bag. Someone her father disapproves of. There are literally hundreds of TV shows that have made an episode on this plot line. Although, for some reason, my mind is blank on examples.
If you think of an episode, let me know in the comment section. The reason there are so many TV show episodes based on this, is because this is a very common occurrence. Girls and humans in general will always try to prove that they know themselves better than anyone else. If you try to tell her that she is wrong about her decisions, she will go the extra mile to prove you wrong. You must avoid this at all cost.
Instead, just build attraction and connection with her to the point she decides to leave the other guy for you.
