3 year relationship, he dumped me and found somebody else in 2 weeks?

So i'm 17, and so is my ex-boyfriend. I broke up with him first because his ego started to overcome a lot of things, and then I changed my mind and he was begging me back at first. Then the next day he went cold on me, and said this is what we need- space and we we're each others first everything.. At first of course I begged, but he said even if we got back together he would be with me out of guilt, and he felt like he owed me. After that I gave him his space (during this time he was very busy, friends, graduation, everything), then an emergency happened I had to call him for help, and he picked me up. He was cold, like a man I've never known. He told me he met somebody else, and he only started liking her after he broke up with me. I understood it is mutual because we're both so young, and he did not cheat so I give him props for that. Now we haven't talked in a week, he sent me a picture of him at disneyland with him family? It's all just so confusing to me. I did not reply because every one said to show him you have power over this too. The girl after our 3 year relationship happened so quickly, I really don't know how to feel. Some days it is easier, some days are harder. I decided to do no contact (block on fb, everything) as well since the day we broke up. It's really all so confusing to me. It's been two weeks now. He's posting pictures of her and stuff... is he just trying to brag or avoid his previous breakup?

I know I am young and will meet other people, but honestly how could he move on so fast? Our relationship still had sparks when he ended it. I can understand he is just being a boy, and let time do its thing. GIGS really, we we're each others first loves. I've had prior experience before him, and he has never had experience before me, But three years into two weeks?

  • it's called a rebound relationship and people do it to avoid dealing with the feelings of the previous relationship. They tend to come unstuck sooner or later though so don't worry about it.

  • he's still trying to be a friend, and he easily moved on cause he's got a new girl, if he didn't have a new girl he would be in serious depression etc, so lucky for him to not have to deal with that or go through with that, like some guys have to. and yes he's probably bragging too

  • "how could he move on so fast?"

    Because he's a guy. That's how we deal with breakups. As a guy, the best way to get over someone is to get with someone else, fast.

  • I've been in the same situation. It's hard on both people, and you find yourself with a lot of extra time on your hands, when you would be talking or hanging out etc, it probably just feels scary and new to him. It's hard to adjust to being single after having someone by your side for so long. Sounds like it's just a rebound thing to help him move on. He's probably posting photos so that other people won't ask him how he's handling your break up. His way of showing everyone he's "fine" even though he probably isn't. It's hard, and breakups are always confusing but do your best to stay strong, this is a good time to just go out with friends and spend time with family, do things for yourself that you enjoy. :) It'll get easier, time really does heal. Good luck!
