Cupid’s Advice:

Even though you might feel it’s not their business, there may be times you need to let your ex know that you’re moving on. What reasons would justify telling your ex about the details of your new relationship?

1. You’re still friends: Not all relationships end completely with social media and number-blocking. In some cases, you might decide to stay friends with your ex. Maybe you work together or have the same circle of friends and don’t want to cause tension or strife. Letting them know you’re moving on before anyone else can soften the blow.

2. You have children: Whether you are just starting to date again or are ready to propose to an amazing new person, you’re going to want your ex to know. You will want your child(ren) to meet them, since the person you’re in a relationship with is now a big part of your life and theirs. Letting your ex know before anyone else that you’re moving on will help prevent any potential arguments and will protect your child’s well-being.

3. You want to let them down easy: Maybe you’ve tried telling your ex that you’re moving on, but it’s had the opposite effect; they think you actually want to get back with them. It’s totally okay to let them know that you’re moving on, but make sure you let them down easy. If you want to maintain the friendship with them eventually, they need to know that you have met someone else; potentially leading them on could turn disastrous later.
