Michael Stagliano, 27, may have won The Bachelor Pad, but he ultimately lost ex-fiance Holly Durst, 28, to fellow contestant Blake Julian. Â Durst’s engagement to Julian was revealed to Stagliano on the show’s finale. Â Putting that shocking news aside, our jars also dropped when we read the jilted bachelor’s statement to People, which read, “We were engaged and therefore I will always care about and love her so it makes me happy when she is happy.” Â Way to take it like a man, Michael.
How do you deal when your ex decides to marry someone else?
Seeing your ex with another girl is a hard pill to swallow. Â Hearing your ex is engaged to someone else can be pure torture. Â Thankfully, weâ€™ve got a few tips so that you can move on with your life without taking someone elseâ€™s happiness away:
1. Happiness: Were you happy with your ex? Â If so, try being happy for him or her to return the favor.
2. Think about yourself: Being happy for someone else first means being satisfied with your own accomplishments.
3. No need to go congratulating your ex: As long as you know that youâ€™ve moved on, that may be all that matters. Â At the bare minimum, don’t ruin your ex’s special time by being negative toward him. Â As the old adage goes, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
