my recent ex seemed to lose interest and didn't really defend me when I needed it or protected me. all in all, he became an asshole or he was good at hiding it.
so I started the break up and...
our last conversation was this approximately
me: you just didn't try
him: I've been thinking for awhile, I don't want to hurt you
me: yeah I know, I'm seeing someone else already
he's better than you in a lot of ways
was it a good thing or a bad thing?
I think it's good cause he didn't care after 3 years apparently

To me, a break is either a complete break-up or just taking time apart from each other. If the former, you should be allowed to date because you've broken up. If the latter, you should only date if you are not even considering going back to the other person. If you were just taking some time apart to see how much y'all would miss each other, how much you need each other, etc. then I don't think it's right to date other people until the break-up is 'official'. It sounds to me that y'all were broken up and it was best you found someone else who treats you like how you want to be treated.2
