After a breakup most people go through a series of emotions and among them is the fear that your ex girlfriend is going to end up dating some other guy.

If you want her back, the thought of her finding another man can send shivers down your spine.

So how do you know whether it will happen?

After all, your ex is probably quite good looking and has a lot on the ball, so you think to yourself, what if she does find someone else.  Or what if some other guy puts the moves on her and suddenly your chances of getting her back are slim.

I know from working with thousands of clients that such thoughts can be pervasive and occupy far too much of your time.

So you are probably looking for a quick answer right?  Well here it is:

Your ex girlfriend is not likely to find another guy because after the breakup she will be wrestling with a whole other set of emotions, least of which is finding love with another man.  So in most cases, you need not worry about her seeking out a serious relationship with another man.  But as with all things, there is a time limit.

For those who want more details,  let’s me walk you through the 7 top reasons why your ex girlfriend is not likely to go looking for love with some other guy.

7 Reasons Why Your Ex Girlfriend Won’t Try to Date Another Guy

For starters, its important to underscore that breakups are hard on people.  If you are uncertain and anxious about your future with her, then it is likely she is feeling the same way.

And if she has not discovered that truth, eventually she will.

This effect which I call, “mirroring” is a real phenomenon that happens to breakup couples all the time. Your job is to realize that things may not be as hopeless as you fear and that you have some advantages.  Here are seven advantages that can play to your favor.

1. Despite What She Says She Is Still Stuck On You

A lot of us go into denial after a breakup. Your ex girlfriend may be acting out a lot of things, pretending you no longer matter to her.

But the truth is once you invest a lot of quality time into a woman, she will remain attracted to you at a subconscious level. That magic that you once had is usually not completely extinguished.  It’s still there. It just might need some coaxing to bring it out again.

So don’t be persuaded by what she says immediately following the breakup. More often than not she is feeling pretty twisted inside. You ex girlfriend is also probably still learning how to cope without you in her life.

This will provide you with upside opportunities.

2. Few Women End Up Rebounding In the Short Term

One of the greatest fears a guy has after their breakup is that their ex girlfriend will go running to the next guy.  And while I won’t say that is impossible, it would be unusual in the short term.

Jumping into some other man’s arms is probably the last thing on her mind.  A breakup usually create emotional chaos and vulnerability.  She is not going to be in much of a mood to find a new man.

In fact for many women, getting involved with another man is the last thing on their mind.

3. The Duration of Your Time Together Counts For Something

Another element in this question of whether your ex girlfriend will find some other guy is the matter of how long the two of you were a couple.  The longer you were together, the more difficult it will be for her to completely break things off with you.

This desire to make things work is directly correlated with the time you have been seeing each other.

So if you are one of those guys who have enjoyed a lengthy relationship with their ex girlfriend, the clock is ticking in your favor.

What Are Your Chances of Getting Your Ex Girlfriend Back?

She will usually not be prone to go hunting for some other man to date.

4. Your Ex Girlfriend Probably Has A lot Invested in You

The fact the two of you were a couple means that some things clicked and she most likely has a lot invested in you.  Rather than thinking of other men, her thoughts are more likely to be revolving around how to make things work with you again.

Now, it may take awhile for her to appreciate this truth, but eventually she should see that you, unlike most other guys out there, understand her the best.

5. Your Ex Doesn’t Want More Hardship

By the way, in case you don’t remember, getting back out there in the dating world is hard.  The dating world is full of rejection and she is not going to be primed to usher in more disappointment.

It’s natural for us to want to make things work and the more she has poured herself into the relationship with you, the greater your chances.

So naturally she will not want to test the waters anytime soon.

6. She Will Likely Discover You Are Difficult to Replace

Not everyone is you.

She fell in love with you and love is not something one can easily trade in and out of.  There are probably many things about you that she values and finding someone with those exact same traits won’t be easy.

In fact, it is really impossible for your ex girlfriend to replace you because no one on this planet is exactly like you.

Think of it as an invisible force that over time can cause her to want to be with you again.

7. Given the Aftermath Your Ex Girlfriend is Probably Struggling More Than You Realize

If your breakup was like most, then it was probably a difficult parting.  She will find herself grappling with a great many things.

Such emotions can take a toll and it is not likely your ex girlfriend will be motivated to find another guy in her current emotional state.

Men may be the last thing on her mind so your worries are probably unfounded.

Closing Comments

I know what you are going through is hard.  Just know that it is natural for your mind to go to these places.

It is normal to worry about your ex girlfriend making friendly with another guy.

While one cannot discount it completely, you should know that it is typically not a thing that happens particularly if your relationship was moderately successful and lasted a decent amount of time.
