Cupid's Pulse Article: Jesse James Compares Sandra Bullock and Kat Von DCupid's Pulse Article: Jesse James Compares Sandra Bullock and Kat Von D

We all make mistakes in relationships, but Jesse James doesn’t regret any of his.  The former Discovery channel star told Howard Stern Thursday that Kat Von D is more fun in bed than Bullock. “She’s a vixen,” he raved of his bride-to-be.  “The way she gets in my head and makes me feel.”  James, who according to, loved and cared about Bullock, has found exactly what he was looking for with Von D.  He sometimes felt insecure with a big-time movie star.  “I’ve met someone that makes me happy — an amazing woman that is willing to accept me for my faults and not try to change me and loves me like crazy and has my back,” the former Monster Garage star explained.

How do you keep from comparing your ex and your new partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

Finding someone new is one of the most amazing things to come from a break-up.  That said, you need to make sure that you’re ready and that your ex is out of your head.  Cupid has some tips on how to avoid comparing potential new love interests to exes:

1. Look on the bright side: Your ex is your ex for a reason.  If someone new comes into your life, think of the positive things … but avoid thinking about why your current relationship is better than your old.  They’re completely separate from each other!

2. Keep an open mind: We all need to adjust to new things, and it’s easy to always refer to past relationships, especially long-term ones.  If you have doubts, remind yourself this is new and will be different.

3. Go with the flow: Have fun with it, and give things a chance.  Everything happens for a reason, and there could be a very good one as to why this person is in your life.  If it doesn’t work out, just move on.  Eventually, we all get it right.
