The next thing that happens after you break up with someone — this is after the tears, the drama, the denial, the anger, the acceptance, maybe a sneaky shag, more anger, more acceptance and then closure — is moving on. Some people start dating to force themselves to move on, some to bury the pain and yes, some are just ready to jump back in the saddle. You should be focusing on yourself and your own future rather than worrying about his. If you have had the chance to lick your wounds, heal, learn and move on, you stand a better chance of happiness. There must be time to heal. Catch up with friends and family, ramp up the social life and enjoy plenty of me time where you get to be and do exactly what you want.

Here’s What You Need To Realize If Your Ex Moved On Quickly | Thought Catalog
He is your ex for a reason, and for that reason or any other, you two are not compatible, at least not at this point in time. Yes, that may be hard, but be mad on the inside. Here is what not to do when your ex starts dating someone else. Do yourself and your sanity a favor and unfollow your ex and his girlfriend on any social media channel. No, not like the essays you used to write in high school. The last thing you want is for your ex to think you are completely devastated from your break up. You want him to think your life is better than ever!
3 Things You Shouldn’t Do When Your Ex Starts Dating Someone Else
So your ex is gone — and he left you with a broken heart. Nobody moves on and finds someone new that quickly. Of course, if he cheated on you with another woman and started dating her right after you broke up, it might be more serious than a rebound. Other than that situation, the easy rule of thumb is that the longer he waited, the less likely it is to be a rebound relationship. This is a sign you can use to narrow down the probability that your ex is in a rebound relationship very quickly.
A friend once told me his test of whether he's over an ex is whether it would bother him if they were dating someone else. Under that logic, I've never gotten over anyone in my life. Months and sometimes years after a relationship, my heart rate still accelerates when I see an ex is dating someone new on Facebook.
