Girlfriend dating someone else

It’s not completely over until , as in, you’ve adjusted and moved on. Related to a past blog post “Coping with Distress and Agony After a Break-up” I recently received a comment that illustrates this situation.

And you know you’ve moved on when you don’t have a painful emotional reaction to the news that your former love has taken up with another. I'm posting it here, along with some ideas for coping with the hurt—and moving on.

She was the one I always believed I’d end up with; I was convinced that no matter how many times either of us screwed things up, we’d eventually come back to each other.

And I recently had the opportunity I’d been dreaming of: We had another chance to give things a shot, it seemed.

Unfortunately, I’ve come to learn that sometimes -- no matter how aware you are that things may not work out -- there is no such thing as sufficient mental preparation.

Not all of your hopes and dreams are going to come true, and when one of them dies in front of your eyes, it hurts more than you could possibly imagine.

But I learned she was running to me because she was running from someone else -- a man she now loves.

He's no good for her, but she feels for him immensely. It's about the place he or she has in your life as well as your heart.Then there are other times -- when our anticipation takes root and grows over months or years of waiting -- when real life pales in comparison to our fantasies.The more eager we grow, the more painful the experience is when it's not what we wanted.When the unexpected happens, it's usually not an issue.We barely notice the difference between our expectations and reality, and we live our lives as if none of it mattered.--Anonymous Dear Anon, It’s only natural for you and your former lover to move on at different paces and in different ways.
