Having advised hundreds of couples worldwide, I know from experience that one of the most commonly asked questions is what to do when your ex is dating someone else. Does this mean they're over you? Usually, the answer is no - and, in a lot of cases, you can still easily get your ex back! Read on to discover how.
First of all, if your ex started dating someone immediately after dumping you, then they're probably in a rebound relationship. A rebound is usually a short-term relationship that a lot of people use to help get over their ex. The good news for you is that rebounds generally fall apart within 3-4 months, and here's why.
You see, when your ex goes into a rebound relationship, they're not always looking for that special someone. They just need help getting over you - and they think that being in another relationship will do the trick. But, usually, after 3-4 months, they start to realize that the person they're dating is not compatible with them - and that's why such relationships break down most of the time. Before long, your ex will be looking for a way to get out of their rebound – and, if you play your cards right, make their way back into arms!
If you're looking to win back an ex in a rebound relationship, the single best thing to do is to accept it and wait it out. Don't start fights with their new partner or try to talk your ex out of it - both would make you look manipulative and needy. Instead, use this time to heal after the break-up by hitting the gym, socializing with friends and generally living as normal a life as possible.
When your ex's rebound relationship collapses - and it will - that will be the time to make your move! Simply be there for them and make sure they see not only what a great person you are, but how much better you are that then person they were dating before. Before you know it, your ex will be seriously considering giving you another chance – simply because their rebound made them realize that you’re the right one for them!
