    Hi guys,
    Just wanted some perspective on something.
    My girlfriend and I of 2.5yrs broke up 8wks ago on mutual terms. Last week it flashed up on my facebook that she is in a new relationship with somebody I do not know. My sister was annoyed by it but I did not know what to make of it. It feels like only yesterday since we broke up - I haven't even swapped numbers with any girls yet never mind anything else.
    What do you guys think?

    If the break up was on mutual terms, why do you care?

    Bitter tasting, sure, but move on.

    Hey OP,

    It probably did feel hurtful to hear about such a thing, and may feel too soon if you still have feelings there. On the bright side, just think of it as validation to move on. You know she has already so you have no reason not too.

    If you left on mutual terms, then try not to be so hateful towards her, she may just not like being single for long - and each to their own!

    if the break up was on mutual terms surely it shouldn't matter because neither of you wanted to stay together if she has moved on then maybe its time for you too

    Some people fib in their status' to make other people jealous [ex's, friends] either way, if she is yes it's very soon but maybe she liked somebody during your relationship [and didn't pursue it] until now she is single? we deal with breakups differently.
