Why do people get mad when another person dates their ex?

Is it because they still miss them or extreme jealousy? If not, then what is it?

They still have feelings for them. I left my husband in Sept and we together for 7 years. I couldn't care less if he dated one of my friends. I would want to warn them about him first but when you don't have any feelings left for a person there is nothing to get upset over.

Sometimes, maybe oftentimes, because they are always comparing themselves with them, and THINK that their ex is thriving, but they are not.

I never got mad when someone dated my ex. If I didn't like the person then I was happy. If I did like the person, then I was worried. My ex was a horrible person anyway and never even TRIED to be with me. She looked at all the negative things; the stuff we weren't able to do together rather than the positive things (the stuff we were able to do together).

Um... Idk, you just are. You're weird because I say you are. And because you called me cute yesterday. But mainly because I say you're weird, lol, jk.

Geez, i didnt think calling you cute would be such a bad thing :p

I didn't say it was a bad thing. I just said that you're weird. And I didn't know calling you weird was a bad thing. All I'm trying to do is slightly tease you.
