These days, it seems like dating apps offer the best chance of finding your next partner. Is this legit? Nine out of 10 times, no. Cheaters often assume that their lies are bulletproof. Nobody uses Tinder to make new friends.
The guy I'm seeing is still using dating sites. What should I do?
Running Into Your Ex on an Online Dating Site
Each month, we get real talk on relationship problems from three of the gents who put the "men" in Men's Health. He swears he never acted on anything, just browsed. Normal or dump him? But he admitted to using it since you started dating. That's dodgy. Swipe left.
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.
Whether the relationship was short-lived or long-term, most people turn to dating sites to rebound or begin their next one. Now, what do you do when you see your ex on the latest dating site? Well, it largely depends how it ended. You very well might match. And, if you do, start a friendly banter about how funny it is to see each other on this site.
