The speed in which a man moves from a bitter break-up to a new amorous attachment is directly proportional to the pain he's feeling — the deeper the hurt the quicker the hook-up. So if you see your ex in the arms of another within days of your break-up, don't write him off as a horny, uncaring, slime-bucket. Instead, recognize that he was deeply hurt by the end of your relationship and is doing the best he can to mend his broken heart. Then, with that understanding in place, it is perfectly reasonable to go home and cut his head out of all the photos of him you own, and incinerate them in your barbecue. Hey, he deals with his pain one way, you deal with yours another. Who's to judge?
