How to Deal With a Partner Obsessed With Their Cheating Ex

Relationships can be rosy but they can also be full of thorns. It takes a lot of deep understanding for two people to navigate through a passionate affair without burning it to the ground.

It can be even tougher on both people when one of them has been deeply hurt before. The sting of one's partner cheating is not one that dulls easily.

Once a person has been betrayed in a relationship, they are very likely to develop deep trust issues that may take a very long time to get rid of. They may become paranoid and obsessive in their new relationship.

It may be cute at first, but it soon becomes very tiring and annoying when it feels like someone else is watching their every move 24/7. Luckily, there are a few things you could do if you find yourself in one of these kinds of relationships.

Certainly, the change isn't going to happen in a day. Your partner is not going to attend therapy and emerge a totally changed man or woman. Like all good things, it will take time, but there are high chances that it will get better.

Consider Therapy

Remember that they were betrayed by someone they loved and trusted. You might want to think about that before you react to anything they may have done.

Be Patient and Understanding

If you are dating someone who consistently brings up how their former partner cheated on them and broke their trust, you might want to ask why. The answer may seem obvious, but sometimes, the answer may be deeper than it seems.

Ask Why

No one wants anyone following them everywhere like a creep, tracking their every phone call, and researching everyone they hang out with.

Consider Boundaries
