"you were seeing" does mean the person you were dating, but in general, we use "seeing" to imply a less serious relationship, or a relationship that is still quite casual. So, if you were talking about an ex-fiance, or a girlfriend of many years, we'd be less likely to use "seeing". Instead we'd change it to something that is more respectful of the relationship, such as; "Where is Jackie? I haven't seen her for a while." "Oh, we broke up. Things just weren't working between us."
