Well here is my take.
You have no right to tell your ex who to date
you have no right to tell your mutual friend who to date.
Your only option is to control who you are and how you feel. If you can't handle your ex dating people you know, and you can't find the off switch, then your other option is to separate yourself from mutual friends.
You are limited in what you can do.. as the only changes you can make are with yourself.
