On the latest season of The Bachelorette we all watched and cheered when Andi Dorfman chose Josh Murray to be her fiance. Unfortunately, their celebrity love story didn’t last long. Now, the celebrity exes are on the hunt for a new love and are showing it on social media. According to Fashion&Style, Murray posted an adorable picture of his dog on Instagram with #mommyHunting. The reality star is also open about dating when she posted a photo of her new man on Instagram. Even though it looks as if the two have moved on, Dorfman still speaks kindly and optimistically about her celebrity ex. “I never say never,” she shared, “I’ve learned that for a really long time, to never say never, but I think I’m really happy with the life I’m living right now and all I can say is I hope for happiness with him too.”

Celebrity exes Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray aren’t shy about publicly displaying their search for love. What are three reasons exes should not openly flaunt their dating life in front of one another?

Cupid’s Advice:

There’s always the question of how long you should wait from the break-up to going back out and looking for love. Once you do start a new romantic relationship, are you suppose to let your ex know? Here are three reasons why it’s better to keep your dating life away from a past lover:

1. It could look like competition: If it seems like you’re purposely bragging about your new love life just to make your ex jealous, it may be difficult to start a real and true new relationship. Both your new guy and your ex will think the relationship is only for attention.

2. Maintaining a friendship: Although some break-ups make it impossible for any form of friendship to last, that’s not always the case. If you still want to have your ex in your life, it’s better not to bring up the subject of dating and new mates. It’s uncomfortable and can put a strain on the new friendship.

3. Picking a side: If you two have dated for a long it is likely that you have mutual friends. If you’re flaunting all over Facebook or Twitter about your new partner, your ex may get curious and try to get the details from one of those mutual friends, placing them in an awkward situation. Rather than making your friends feel like they have to chose a side in the break-up or play the messenger between the two, it’s better to just keep that part of your life private.
