Recently she has began dating again and good luck to her to

Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Male
Why does this bother me?

I have been out of a relationship for about a year when my ex ended things. I was on okay terms with my ex. We live in a very small community and have much of the same social circle so I have seen her here and there routinely and after the first few times it was never an issue. In fact the relationship was on its last legs and at that point it was more of a companionship thing for me, which I think she knew.

Recently she has began dating again and good luck to her to. However recently, at a bar, they came in and she sat immediately next to the group of people I was with (again she knows some of them) and began making out with the guy right there next to us. Then proceeds to debate the pros and cons of a new relationship across the bar to other friends sat 12 feet away.

I am not a child (nearly 40) and have been through many relationships including a falied marriage and I am certain I neither have feelings for her nor do I want her back, far from it.

So why did her behaviour really upset me. I am really mad at her but I am surprised at my reaction. Im glad she has found someone...well actually I really dont care one way or the other.

I hate feeling like this. Advice
You're probably having a reaction that she is disrespecting you

You don't care about her, but you care how she treats you in public.

Not much you can do about it but grin and bear it.

Best wishes!
