Because it can take months or even years to recover from a breakup, she may have not had the chance to process all of her feelings toward you, says licensed social worker David Braucher in the Psychology Today article “Why Can’t I Get Over My Ex?” Although she may not be interested in getting back together, the thought of you with someone else may evoke jealousy, anger or remorse.

This may be what is going on if your ex tried to control you when you were together—for example, if he tried to limit your time with friends and family or became angry if you talked to male friends.

Just because you have moved past your ex does not mean that your relationship history and the feelings that go along with it have gone away.

While some exes are able to move on quickly and care little about whether you are dating someone new, other exes may have strong feelings about you and your new partner.

These concerns may not be motivated by jealousy but by sincere worries that you are dating someone who is not a good fit for you or is not treating you with respect.

If she has talked about her worries in terms of whether you seem happy and content, it may be worth listening to your ex and considering whether her feelings are valid and based on friendly concern and thus, something to keep in mind as you proceed in your new relationship.
