Is "find someone new" the best way to over ex?

I have been told the best way to over your ex is to date a new one and start a new relationship.Is that true?

I never have such an experience because I can't accept a new guy until I totally over my ex which takes me ages.

  • That my dear is what we call a rebound relationship. Usually the other person who is the rebound suffers and nothing good comes from it.

    Time is the best way to get over an ex. time heals wounds and repairs the mind of the hurt you have been through. I find we often meet the because people either friends or more when we are not looking. Look toward support from friends and family to help you through your hard times. There are billions of people on earth and there really is no rush to jump into anything. Being so young you have your life ahead to meet and date many people. I find music to really help, just lay there with your eyes closed taking in the emotion of the songs. I also like to fish which I feel so at peace with everything when I do. Hearing nature and the birds maybe with a slight tune in the background makes me feel like I am among the clouds. find something you really enjoy and just go do it.

  • Rebound relationships are never good. You might feel good for a while but it's never going to last, once the rebound relationship ends, thoughts about the past relationship will begin to crop up because you never truly got over the person, instead you choose someone else to hide behind.

    You need to grieve and accept the loss before dating again otherwise it will all crop up in this 'new ' relationship.

  • Learn to get over your past hurt. Aka find peace within. You can't date someone new, and be hurt/thinking of a past love. Doesn't work like that, and the new relationship is normally worse.

    Learn to love yourself again.

  • Before you can move on and find peace with another person, you must first find peace within yourself.

    Namaste, or, you know, all that spiritual bullsh*t.

  • It might help to distract you? stop you thinking about your ex for a while, but getting over someone takes time. Move at your own pace :)

  • Yes it's the best way to get over a breakup. But it's only fair to the new person to be 100% focused on them and not dwelling on the ex.

  • Nope it never goes, you just learn to deal with it. Once you accepted it, that's when you know to move on. I actually did this recently. For months I tried getting this girl to see me. I ended up stressing her out so much she told me not to contact her anymore. Thing is I broke her heart before all of this while dating. So I stopped talking to her like she said. 3 months later I write her a message telling her why I did what I did for months to the point where we stressed each other out. This was my way of telling myself, and her that I'm moving on. You don't want loose ends, even if you think she won't read it, the fact that its off your chest is so much better.

  • No I think the best way to get over an ex is the period after the breakup when you take the time to completely get over it. When you get to the point where you are just so happy with yourself you remember that feeling and if the next person you get with doesn't make you at least that happy then get rid of them. A partner is supposed to make your life better overall, not saying there wouldn't be rough patches.

  • No, the new relationship has a real big chance of failing in the end and causing you to be hurt again.

    The best thing you can do is just get over it naturally by spending time with friends/new people and having fun with your life. Working on those character traits you've discovered because of the break up is also good.

  • No. Just no. Rebounds almost never work out especially if you were dumped. Slightly better if you are the dumpee, but still not good enough. The best way thing to do when getting over an ex is to embrace and enjoy your singlehood. Go out. try out new activities and socialise with new people. flirt or date without looking for anything serious

  • I like to date at times just to keep me busy when getting over an ex, but I feel it doesn't exactly help me get over the ex.

    It's more of just keeping busy and keeping your mind off of the person, and getting an ego boost to know more men would appreciate you instead of the jerk we broke up with.

    The best way I get over an ex is by hanging out with my friends, starting new activities, shopping, journaling, and getting rid of all sappy love music and items that remind me of him.

  • Don't date someone new right away. Enjoy being single for a while and work on your image/self esteem
