You are shocked and held in disbelief over the fact that your ex boyfriend is dating again. One of the first things that comes to mind is the question, why?
Why is he dating again?
After that – you start to wonder if it means that he is truly over you and you don’t stand a chance to ever be able to have him back in your life. While that may be true some of the time, it definitely is not true all of the time. And a lot of figuring out whether or not you have a chance of being able to win him back has to do with figuring out why he is dating again.
Here are 3 possible reasons why he is back out there dating:
1. He is just lonely and he wants to meet people.
If this is the case, then you probably still DO have a good chance of being able to reconcile with him and it also is probably true that he isn’t looking for a long term relationship so much as he is just looking to spend time with someone. Don’t feel like the very fact that he is dating again has to be a sign that you can’t ever win him back. If he is doing it just because he is lonely right now, I’d say that you definitely do have a good chance of being able to reconcile with him.
2. He is trying to move on and forget about you.
This is the one that you do have to worry about. If the reason why he is dating again is because he is trying hard to move on, then you can take this as a sign that you might not be able to win him back. It doesn’t mean that it is going to be impossible, but it does suggest that it might be kind of difficult and take more time and more strategic thinking on your part if you do hope for a second chance to date him again.
3. He is trying to make you feel jealous.
This doesn’t happen all of the time, but some of the time it does. He may be hoping that it gets back to you that he is dating again and that it will make you a little bit jealous and also cause you to spring into action as far as trying to get back together goes. This would be a pretty easy situation to work with if you want to end up back in a relationship with your ex boyfriend.
