That's rebounding and using someone else to get over or get back at you're ex. It's never good to date while still heartbroken over an ex cause your heart is still with them. It's also not fair to the other person cause they may truly have feelings for them but the feeling isn't mutual. It's basically wasting time3
The guy I'm seeing mentions his ex (es) literally every time we're together, and I try to be cool and understanding that they went through a lot together and of course there's still attachments, but I will tell you right now that my heart breaks every time he mentions her. I'm there, texting every morning and night, I'm the one talking to him for hours, I'm the one bringing him dinner, I'm the one having sex with him and sleeping in his bed, but he can't get over her and I can't tell you how many times I've cried because of it. I don't doubt that he cares for me, but I regret getting involved with him because he has healing to do, and I found that out too late.
Don't drag someone into it if you're not over her. You're going to tear her apart.2
I think it is okay to try to move on by dating someone else. If you realize the feelings for your ex are too strong you can always explain why to that person.1
Then you don't truly love the person you have a relationship with. You don't need to be in a relationship.0
I couldn't do it because I know I love someone else1
There's pros and cons. Con: you could constantly compare the one you're dating to your ex. Endlessly. Con: Resent him Cuz he's not your ex.. con: try and turn him into your ex.0
It’s called a rebound and while it may help the dumpee in the short run, it’s not fair to the new person and not healthy for the dumpee in getting closure.0
It's called a rebound.0
It won't be healthy.0
It can help you move on honestly. The ex is an ex for a reason0
Nothing good will happen in a new relationship if you are bringing old baggage.
You have to completely cleanse and purify your heart before investing in something new. That usually takes just over a year depending on how emotionally mature you are. :) good luck
Try not to continue the cycle of heartbreak and truly learn from the last. People shouldn't be treated as disposable although not saying every relationship has to last forever.0
it's unfair to your new person0
I think it's wrong, very wrong. You date someone you should be fully committed to them and then only.1
Not a good idea. You're just wasting someone's time.0
Well I still love, miss, AND think about my ex, but then I really want to date this guy I really like... But dating someone while you're still hung up on your ex isn't good.0
Never a good idea. You’ll compare the two and miss your ex. It’s unfair to both of you.0
It works to an extent but it can hurt the other person. If you know both of you aren’t serious about the relationship then casual dating can work to help you forget.0
it's a good idea because it makes you think less about your ex and more about this new person, keeping you away from sad thoughts
i used this "cure" a couple of times and it always worked0

nothing wrong with it, but expect internal conflict as you try and figure out your feelings about the new person and the old one.
maybe be honest with anyone you are starting a serious relationship with, but otherwise those feelings are yours and yours alone.0
This is called a rebound and rarely works. If your partner is serious about you then you are wasting their time completely0
You will ALWAYS love/miss/think about your ex, in my opinion. I still do that about my first crush, way back in grade school. And every woman since. So don't let that keep you from seeking the next one...0
always a bad idea this is where rebounds and pain come from0
