Why do some people date if they aren’t over their ex?

Why hop in a relationship if they still have feelings for another person. Why do dumpers do this too?

  • Some people have a rebound to get their mind off their ex. I've done it, but I've always been up front that my interest is short term and didn't lead anyone on that I was interested in more

    • But some people actually get in committed relationships

  • Because people are unthoughtful and careless. Also, probably selfish.

  • Some times they don't know that they aren't over their ex, other times they are hoping that seeing someone new will help them move on.

    • Well that’s dumb

    • Yeah, but most people are dumb and short sighted. Can't help human nature, I guess.

  • The two parties really weren't into each other to begin with. They cut their losses and decided to move on, mainly for selfish reasons.

    • Well why woulda dumper or dumpe want to make the other jealous

    • There are sick people out there, and sometimes the dumped one wants to show the dumper that " I don't care if you don't want to be whit me I am dating someone else already". And hope that the dumper will regret that he or she wanted to end the relationship in the first place.

  • Trying to move on, convince themselves that everyone's different and it's possible for the same thing to not happen twice.

  • To tell you the truth they really don't know why but the fact is that they don't feel it for about 3-6 months. So if one tells you he would like to start something but he will need some time to get over everything. Please give him that time and don't force anything. You can hangout and all because we need someone to hear us out and be there when we truly need someone

  • Because a guy can’t just wait for everything to be okay. You have to take opportunities afforded to you as they appear. Besides, the distraction can be good, the understanding that there’s other fish in the sea is good.

    • Why would they make them jealous lol

    • Depends on how the relationship ended. Usually on a bad note, some would date another quickly to show their ex partner they have got over them and he/she could find someone faster than the other. I had an ex boyfriend did that before

    • Why would they want to prove that they got over them?

  • Cuz you can't just stop your life you have to get on with things move on and be happy

    • But you’re using the other person

    • Not really its its only the start of the relationship and the feels will grow

  • I don't understand with it too, for me don't even start a relationship if you still had feelings for your ex

    • I take it that you get over your exes pretty quickly. I mean, if you don't get over, do you wait years to date? Makes no sense.

  • Because some do it to get over their ex. Ever heard of "the best way to get over someone.. is to get under someone else?" They are trying to purge.

    • What if they still aren’t over their ex after the new r

    • I think it happens to a lot of people. It isn't right at all. Because I'll feel used as heck. He clearly can't be alone for too long and that's not good either.

    • Yeah
