Cupid’s Advice:

During these happy times, there may be rocks between you and your ex. Here are Cupid’s tips on how to keep your past relationships from affecting your new one:

1. Do not fall for any bait: If there are hard feelings between you and your ex, it’s possible that they may try to get a rise out of you. For example, they may say things to you do deliberately upset you. Positively rise above this and don’t give in.

2. Focus on you and your new relationship: Your partner may be hurting but you need to focus on you and your new relationship. The breakup is something your ex has to handle on their own and you should not let their hardship with the breakup affect you. If it does, it can cause difficulties with your new relationship and nobody wants that!

3. Try to be amicable: Even if your partner isn’t being amicable, you can always try to be. Be positive towards them; wish them well and try to interact positively with them rather than hostile. This will help reduce your stress with negativity kept down and prevents that negativity from entering your new relationship.
