While it is possible that your ex sought professional help and changed, how something appears from the outside – or the early stages of the relationship – might not show outward signs of abuse, but it is likely to happen again.Your ex might even be taking extra measures to make sure you and the world see that they are “happy” in their new relationship. You escaped the emotional and physical battering from your last relationship.It was difficult, with many steps back, many times of turning back to the cycle of violence before you finally broke free.
Their new flame is also likely to encounter abusive behaviors unless they sought professional help.
But now, you are getting stronger daily, learning to love yourself again and working through all the hurt, fear and anger you have experienced in the past.
You have learned to work on yourself, you have built a strong support system around you and you have discovered you are better because of it all. But then you find out that your abusive ex is dating again.
However, after taking into account the different consequences of warning the new partner, or not warning them, hopefully you will be able to come to the decision that is right for you.
Overall, dealing with an abusive ex who is dating again can be a challenge.
Even if you reached out to your ex’s new lover and they scoffed at your words, keep in mind that all survivors can use help.
