<span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>How would you feel if your ex partner new gf started putting photos of their holiday kissing on a well known social networking site for anyone to see. What is even worse is that my ex partner took me to the same place .</span>
Hi sherima, I suppose it depends where you are in your journey following the separation. I’m no longer on the well known social media site as I feel it’s just a platform for folks to portray the way they’d like the world to see their ‘new life’, it made me feel really negative and I didn’t want to be part of this drama anymore. Personally now, I’m okay with who I am, where I’m at and whilst I’m still single I’m aware my ex partner is not, I wish them all the luck in the world. We were together 16 years as I’m the happiest since I escaped his manipulative ways. My genuine only hope is that she’s a nice girl who will care for my children the way I would care them whilst he has his 4 days access per month, the rest is their business. Have a break from social media, it’s not good for mental wellbeing x
Yes I know thank you for this. I was told that people glorify their lives on this site.
I was intrigued and mortified as my ex who wants to stay friends says he hardly knows the new womabut he has known her for years.

Its good if you can maintain a good relationship, I really wish I could but I wasn’t able due to his behaviour, it’s mentally exhausting and I’m strong. I ended up in court having an occupation order granted. Initially I thought I’ll just block him on social media but we had mutual friends and they were doing screen shots and sending them to me, good intentions but it made me feel worse. I’ve been off now for 4-5 months and I’ve realised all the people who care about me are still in my life. My life is very private which I think irritates the ex as he longer knows what I’m up to with the kids. He has no idea whether I have another partner. This man twinned our phones without my knowledge and was intercepting all my messages and tracking me through GPS, that was after our separation. He’s mentally deranged so I only have sympathy with his new partners, but they will learn for themselves. It’s usually difficult if your relationship ends and it’s not a mutual decision, my mum once said to me when I was younger that it’s the memories you’re in love with, nothing can take those away but it’s time to focus on the future, learn to be comfortable with who you are and try to socialise in new circles. I went and passed my CBT this year in a moment of madness, I’ve never ridden a motorbike in my life prior to this and I have to say it was absolutely fab!
