My ex broke up with me because of a significant age gap. (him45 - me27), with the reasoning that he wanted a real relationship with someone his own age. It wasn't a messy split and we agreed we would both like to be friends but that I would need time to deal with my feelings about not being together anymore. '
So after only a week, in which we have not spoken at all, I find out that he is now sleeping with the town bike. I have known this woman for the past two years. The entire time my ex and I were together and have known her to be with at least two guys at once, I mean have one living with her and be sneaking out to see another. She has been dating a very good friend of mine for close to 6 months but seeing other men on the side.
So I guess my question is... Why after a two year relationship would a man sleep with someone he knows is trouble? And should I be upset that he has moved on so quickly?

Men don't equate feelings with sex the same way you did. The assumption that he is upset and is trying to move on may very well be false. He could have simply wanted sex. That's all.0

Some people, not just men, are able to very easily separate sex from feelings. Meaning that sleeping with someone who they know has been around the block and back will be zero of an issue, granted that they know they'll receive a release from their built up sexual tension.
As for your second question... I'd say that, if anything, you should be more happy that you're rid of him than anything else. What's there to be upset about him 'moving on so fast' if it could very well indicate that he was emotionally removed from the relationship far before the actual breakup? I mean... c'mon girl. You can do better.0
