You may feel sad and upset if you were to see your ex on an online dating site only a week after breaking up.
You may also feel as though your ex has moved on way too quickly.
That may make you question your entire relationship with your ex and whether it was ever truly meaningful or real.
However, despite the sadness, anger, betrayal and sense of inadequacy that you feel, you should take certain things into account.
For one, if your ex during the course of your relationship was always cheating or untrustworthy, the fact that you have now seen this ex on an online dating site only a week after breaking up with you shouldn’t be surprising.
This ex was already showing a poor character flaw by not being faithful to you while they were in a relationship with you.
Hence, the fact that you have now seen this ex on an online dating site only a week after breaking up shouldn’t befuddle you.
You may feel that your ex was always apologizing about their infidelity during the course of your relationship with them.
They always seemed so sincere in their apology.
There may have even been stretches of time where this ex was completely faithful to you and wouldn’t cheat.
Hence, you may have made yourself believe that your ex had changed and that they would never cheat on you again.
However, your ex may have cheated on you again during the course of your relationship.
In fact, the both of you may have even broken up over your ex’s cheating behavior multiple times during the course of your relationship with your ex.
Now that you have had the most recent break up with your ex, you have seen that your ex is on an online dating site only a week after the break up.
It is easy to feel betrayed in this circumstance.
However, if your ex had been exhibiting this cheating behavior throughout your relationship with them, the fact that you have now seen this ex on an online dating site only a week after breaking up would only further confirm their pattern of behavior.
Your ex already had a pattern of cheating on you during the course of your relationship and thereby it would be natural for them to join an online dating site soon after breaking up with you.
Also, they may have joined this online dating site in one of your previous break ups, but you just didn’t know it.
In fact, they may have had this online dating account for a while now and you have only just discovered them on the dating site.
Hence, in the times that the both of you broke up in the past, this ex may have come back to the online dating site to find new dating prospects, but you simply weren’t aware of it at those times.
In another scenario, you may not have had a cheating ex.
Your relationship with your ex may have actually been really good and loyal.
Based on that, you may really be questioning the validity of your entire relationship with that ex now that you have seen that ex on an online dating site.
However, do understand that there are often cases where an ex joins an online dating site soon after a break up because they simply don’t want to deal with the heartbreak.
They often turn to an online dating site in the hopes that they can find someone new to date who will help them forget about the emotional pain that they are feeling due to the break up.
This is never a good idea because whoever your ex ends up dating from the online dating site will only be a rebound and thereby whatever relationship they have with this person will not last.
Your ex is simply not emotionally available to this person or anyone at this time.
In this scenario, your ex hasn’t gotten over their break up with you and they are merely trying to run away from the heavy emotions that they are feeling.
