Healing after the end of relationship is a process. This process is much more difficult to go through if you’re still in constant contact with you ex. Even though he is going on dates, there’s a good chance that he is also struggling with this process (people cope in different ways). It would be beneficial for you to come in and talk with someone about healthy ways to cope with this situation. It will also be beneficial for you to learn how to maintain a solid sense of self and an inner calmness when your ex is making choices that you have difficulties witnessing (like the texting and going on dates).
