About a week after the bar incident, he got a new girlfriend. We live in a small town, so everyone knows everyone.
This girl comes from a very drama-filled family (“bat crap crazy” is how people refer to her and her mom). She has a very low-paying job and a child from a previous relationship (she admits to getting pregnant to make the guy stay, but he didn’t).
So I blocked and deleted him from my phone, Facebook, and Snapchat.
He has tried on other occasions to contact me, but he won’t talk me in person.
The girl is severely overweight (my ex is a petite guy), looks like a drag queen, doesn’t have any friends or a social life, yada yada. Because I know at least three or four of my girlfriends to whom this happened to recently.
My question is: why do men sometimes leave a woman and then go and date someone who is several steps down from the woman they left? I’m smart, I have a great, great job, I am athletic and adventurous, I volunteer, and I have a wide network of friends.

Trust me when I say women become willing to take drastic measures to prove to themselves once again that they are attractive, loveable and important.
And yet, my boyfriend dumps me and turns around two months later and is Facebook-official with another girl.
