Dating moving very slowly
She didn’t want to be in a relationship with a ghost.The good news is that after a month or two, we were able to get into the groove of being friends.So after about 8 months of me being pretty absent as a boyfriend, she left.It was hard for me to accept, but it was absolutely the right move on her part.Then she started plastering pictures of her and her new boyfriend everywhere on Facebook and to be perfectly honest it bothered me a bit, but I accepted it.When we hung out, she would occasionally allude to seeing someone, but overall it wasn’t a topic of discussion and I was happy with that.If I can’t accept her life as it is, then I’m not really a friend. So in terms of how it relates to your situation: My feelings aren’t those of jealousy or wanting to get back together with her.
It’s a hard pill to swallow, but it’s my issue and not hers. I really loved the friendship I had with her, but it was going in a direction that wasn’t acceptable to me.
In the case of some of my exes, I could care less about what they’re doing. Now call me narcissistic, but I believe that when ex-girlfriends post an entire portfolio of themselves with their new boyfriend there’s at least some tiny seed of a thought about their ex-boyfriend seeing it and being jealous.
