Chapter 45. That feeling that you get when you see a picture of your ex with another woman for the first time

Nausea. Distress.

Those feelings may come thorugh your veins as you unveiled the truth: your ex looks happy in the arms of another woman. And what is worse, another woman is bragging about your ex and is calling your ex “her baby”.

Let me start by saying that this was not meant to happen. Blame it on social media.

For years, you may know your ex new girlfriend’s first name and be ok with it. As long as her last name is not your former last name everything is good. But one day you find out what her last name really is, by chance, it appears on a random update that you run into as you are about to put your phone on airplane mode and call it a day. One minute later, you are googling this woman like a maniac and finding things that you wish you had not ever found about her (i.e: she seems like a nice person, she has style, she likes a lot of the same things that you like, she is thinner your gramma even loves her…I mean, all painful stuff).

That is the risk that we take these days as we link accounts, sync devices and upload personal information on social networks that we believe to be private. Surprise! They are not, your ex will find it.

Our life partners are mirrors of who we are or who we were and therefore so are the new partners that they choose to spend their life with after us.

But as you grow older many people understand that faking is part of the deal to get what we want, right?

Just saying…
