If Your New Partner Has The Same Name As Your Ex & You Cant Get Over It, Here’s What To Do

If it’s impossible for you to get rid of these items, then at least, hide them in a place where you can’t see. When you are busy with your hobbies and interest, it can be hard for your mind to think of anything else but your activities. It can divert your attention and lessen the chances of thinking about them. It is a simple way to stop yourself from thinking about the past. Even after your ex broke up with you, they might still want to get in touch with you because they don’t want things to end between the two of you. They keep messaging you or liking your statuses just so that they can show that there’s still hope for them to get back together with you.

When A Man Feels Guilty After A Breakup

After a break up when your ex starts dating right away, it is usually a rebound. Rebound relationships are notorious for their short-term existence. People who experience rebound relationships tend to get tired of them as fast as they get fascinated by such relations.

So, learn to choose the right time and see your date blooming into a beautiful relationship. Silence about a former lover can indicate lack of closure. Guilty feelings from carrying a secret torch often make a person not want to talk about an ex. If you notice your partner’s afraid to bring up the ex or if your partner’s tried and it’s becomes a sore point, Sherman says, it’s time to ask why. In a second study, the researchers further explored how contact with exes relates to the quality of the current relationship by examining people’s reasons for staying in touch. They surveyed 169 undergraduate students in relationships, who said they communicated with an ex at least once every couple of months.

People Discuss What It Means To Be 'Dating’ Someone And No One Can Agree

The second task on the list is to focus on the person you’re with and not your ex. Only then will you be able to get comfortable with saying your partner’s name out loud and grow the relationship with him or her. The only thing this person has in common with your ex is the name. That’s why you mustn’t look for similarities between the two people.

My energy’s not quite right for that situation,” she said. The mother of six was glowing as she shared her happy news. Perhaps you feel an unbearable urge to compare yourself unfavorably to your ex’s new partner.

Set Things Up With Your Ex And His/Her Best Friend

You are living in a fantasy world in which you have a happy co-parenting relationship in which sharing about your romantic life is organic and normal, ignoring your reality that proves you have anything but. As I’ve written about extensively, dating is normal and healthy regardless of your parental status. Let me preface this by saying that I have no bad feelings towards Mark’s ex. While it sucks that he had called me by her name, I understand that she was someone important in his life, and everything he’s learned while being with her has made him a better partner for me. Feigning illness, I left dinner early because I needed some space. Then, on the train ride back to my flat, I thought hard about how the situation came to be.


Typically, there are four types of woman your ex is picking to rebound. Hopefully, by now, you have a clear understanding of the definition of a rebound relationship and the best way to deal with it. But the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

People can date whoever they want, for whatever reason they want. I think in any of those scenarios, it’s more indicative that you/the person is attracted to people with generally the same features. That’s their „type”, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re trying to find a „substitute” or anything. It’s never happened to me, but I have a good friend who dates guys who all look the same, more or less. It’s weird but I’ve just accepted that that’s the kind of guy she’s into.

However, if you react to his advances in a way that he wasn’t expecting or didn’t want, he lashes out and starts treating you like crap again. Reaching out to you, even declaring his love for you, in this kind of situation is an attempt to disrupt that happiness. To succeed here, you’ll need to show your happy and contented side to your ex. Groom yourself and your living style in such a manner that no one in this world could resist joining too. There are chances of getting back together regardless of whether your ex has moved on or has a new partner.

This is a natural hard-wired psychological instinct all humans have — we’re wired to quickly forget about bad memories, and romanticize the good ones. Basically, the reason this is such a strong sign is because it clearly shows that your ex still internally conflicted about breaking up. On one hand, they knew and still believe that going your separate ways was the logical, ‘correct’ path for them moving forward… hence the breakup. It shows they’re not able to handle the idea of you disappearing from their life entirely, and they want to make sure you’re still around as a ‘backup plan’ in case they change their mind about breaking up.

The series will feature the dating stories and misadventures of Arika – a 26-year-old, straight female marketing manager with a penchant for over drinking — and fellow millennials. Not to be all Captain Obvious, but getting sexually involved with your ex will only add to the emotional baggage you’re attempting to unload. “It allows you to feel a sense of control over a part of your home, and is a great way to get reacquainted with your individuality as a single person again,” says Francisque. Think of grieving for your relationship as building scar tissue around a cut.

I want to get back to them; suggest what I should do to make my ex mine again? Your ex doesn’t deserve you to fight for him or her, and neither does your ex want that. It is in both your ex’s and your own best interest to let them date a new partner. Keep your distance and try not to interfere in their lives in any aspect. Your doubts about your ex’s real intentions are understandable. You could be confident that your ex would be thinking the same way if the roles were reversed.
