Dating someone whos been arrested
Your ex will never experience with this new person exactly what they did with you.
I know I'm not alone in feeling devastated over an ex moving on.Trying to find a job, without a car, was embarrassing and difficult. And I lived in a home for the next several months knowing that, at any moment, he could walk back into my life (and my house) because he knew where I was and he knew that my back window was broken out (because he shattered it with his left fist). But when things began to become abusive and I seriously questioned whether or not I’d be given the opportunity to wake up the following morning, I became an evangelical Christian. If dating were the answer, I would’ve started already.I PRAYED and pleaded and THANKED god that he was there, looking over me and keeping me alive. Yes, at some point, I have to start seeing other people again, but I deserve to (and will) give myself enough time to feel ready before I allow someone to buy me dinner.A lot of my friends have confessed they've felt the same way, especially when they're forced to find out through social media.Discomfort with an ex publicly pairing up again is also acknowledged in pop culture; after Marnie breaks up with Charlie on , she obsesses over the other woman she sees in his Facebook photos."Most people don't want to feel expendable, rejected, or out of control," sex and relationships therapist Cathy Beaton tells Bustle.
