It can even make you feel inexplicably jealous. Is he making more of an effort? Is he being more honest? The truth is, he may be treating his new girlfriend better because he learned from your relationship. You get a little nostalgic. Nostalgia always makes the past seem better than it actually was, and seeing your ex get into a new relationship can trigger false feelings about your past relationship.
I’m jealous of my ex and i don’t know why
Is it hard for you to watch them talk in person? If you and your partner run into his ex on the street, do you immediately wrap your arm around him possessively?
Is this absorption with their past obscuring some other issue? Do you feel angry on their behalf for how their ex treated them? If there are children involved, is it hard for you to win their trust, or even get along with them?
Another way to move beyond jealousy is to work on strengthening your relationship connection. If your partner is in communication with their ex, for any reason besides rekindling their love, allow this to happen.
