Once out of a relationship, you may need time to catch your breath before dating someone.
So, what happens when your former partner has already started seeing someone? Even of more importance, what to think when it turns rather serious in a short amount of time? This can be even more of a concern when you are sharing custody of your children.
In such situations, your ex may or may not be forthcoming when it comes to telling you all about their new love.
In the event they do not want to share all pertinent details, is it time for you to go to work and find out things on your own?
If the answer is yes, you might consider doing an online people search.
Internet Can Be a Great Resource
If you do decide to move on over to the Internet to learn more about your ex’s new partner; where to start?
The best thing when looking for people on the Internet is to have some pertinent info to begin your search.
For example, do you know the full name of the person your ex is now involved with? If so, that will get you started.
Keep in mind that there are online search companies to provide you necessary details.
Once you enter a person’s full name in a search, it can pull up details. These include where they live, where they lived over time, their age, if they’ve ever had any criminal issues etc.
Yes, while some sites let you do an initial free search, you may have to pay for more detailed info. Either way, you are likely going to want those details to have a better idea of who your ex is now seeing.
Also consider using social networking like Facebook and Instagram to draw more information.
Unless the one you want to learn more about has a locked social account, you can in typical cases find posts. That would include what they’re up to and recent images of them.
As you can see, the Internet can be your go-to source when you want to know more about the new person in your ex’s life.
Tread Carefully When Kids Are Involved
If you and your ex share custody of your children, make it a point not to have issues in front of them.
No matter the reason or reasons you broke up in the first place, arguing over a new adult in your child’s life does no good. In fact, it can create more turmoil and even a permanent rift.
If your ex is settling in with a new man or woman, do your best to get along with them.
No, you do not have to be best of friends. That said be an adult, especially when your children are around. Whether your child is home or off at college, they will figure out there is a problem with you and your ex’s new partner.
Last, in the event you have not already done so, come to accept that your relationship is over and your ex has indeed moved on.
Whether you like it or not; you have to get on with your life.
So, if your ex’s new partner is a concern, let the Internet provide you with the details you need to go from here.
