Anybody else feel like somebody new would just be “counterfeit”?

Hey my friend, I have been in your position on both sides! My ex husband always placed me above his league and still does. I wish I could shake him and say that he was worthy of me falling love with, and sticking around with and he will find someone better than me. I dated a literal movie star after him and was very aware that HE was out of my league and now any future dates compare themselves to him. It’s all pointless because you simply love who you love. There is no competition or comparison when something real comes along. I never think that I’ll be doomed to find someone “less than” a movie star, I can’t wait to fall in love again and I hope both of my exes do too. Especially ex husband because he is so beautiful and wonderful but he cannot see it.
