Cupid’s Advice:

Moving on isn’t always easy, and while it can be a sensitive time, it still has to be done. Cupid has some ways to keep your new relationship from hurting your recent ex:

1. Respect: Respect is the most important part of this whole situation. You and your ex called it quits, and it’s important to respect the fact that it takes time to move forward. Not only should you respect this, but your new partner should as well. Parading your new partner around can be hurtful and can cause unwanted drama. Your new love interest may be inclined to stir the pot; don’t let them. Make sure everyone respects each other and things go smoothly. Who wants the drama anyway?

2. Distance: Distance can actually very much help the situation. We’re not saying that you and your new flame cannot enjoy going out, but maybe for a while avoid going to places that you and your ex used to frequent. Keeping your new relationship separated from the old is one of the best things you can do. Keeping a respectful distance helps to build a healthy relationship for all parties involved.

With some time, your ex should be better about the situation, and you and your new partner will be able to thrive with no drama. They say time heal all wounds, so, in this case, give your ex time to adjust to the fact that you are moving on. Just think about if the shoe were on the other foot.
